Iglesia de San Andres is one of the most impressive churhes both inside and out. The interior is more unusual due to all the dark marble in the alter and other fearures in the church. Great location set in its own square giving unobstructed views...More

built in 1622 the small church lasted since and during the Moorish occupation. Most on the inside was destroyed and stolen during the Spanish Civil war, this is the reason the interior is mostly wood. You dont have to plan ahead and make a big...More

There is nothing justifying the energy you'll loose while visiting this church.... So I'm afraid that the single possible recommendation is: just don't do it!

Nice baroque church in La Latina quarter, hidden from the main route, but definitely worth a visit to admire lovely interior decorations. The addmision is free.

Great damage befell this church during past conflicts but significant restoration has given the grand interior we have today. The view along the nave to the fine altar area is most impressive. Lovely columns and stonework abound. The wonderful decorative dome suffuses the altar features...More

We found this church, a royal church, while on our self-guided walking tour. What a find! You might visit many churches while visiting Madrid, but this one is impressive. The interior is beautiful. I would say the most beautiful interior of all the churches we...More

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique

charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other
