Parroquia Jesus de Medinaceli, Madrid

4.3
View a historically significant 17th-century statue of Jesus at Parroquia Jesus de Medinaceli, a Baroque-style Catholic church. Enter the elegant cathedral and climb the stairs to view the statue, created by artists in the School of Sevilla and originally transported to a Spanish fortress in Morocco. The piece was then captured by the Moors, ransomed by Trinitarian monks, and delivered to the church in 1682, where people now go to pray to its image. Many kiss the statue's feet after praying (and an employee dutifully wipes the surface after each kiss).

  • A very beautiful shrine will visit Friday, being able to climb up to the image to pray and kiss the feet. The first Friday of the month is when viaitas has more. Very nice parish

  • Jesus de Medinacelli Madrid city Father. It's history is really interesting, reading about it is a must! At the old city, near Prado museum and Spanish Deputy Congress, it's easy to park in a public parking or use public transport. There are Beautiful images inside... After you can go to Plaza De Santa Ana to eat something. Nice on Sundays.
