My wife and I visited the Almudena Cathedral and we found the statue of Juan Pablo II behind it. This Pope was much loved, so we were glad that this monument is there.

Estatua de Juan Pablo II is situated in front of the entrance to the cathedral and seems a popular site for people laying flowers etc. and praying in front of it.

The larger than life statue of Pope John Paul II really gets your attention as you leave the Cathedral de la Almudena. I was also moved by the statue 'Homeless Jesus' by Timothy Schmalz which sleeps on a park bench nearby.

Though sculptor Juan de Avalos has depicted Pope John Paul II as larger than life in this bronze statue by Cathedral de la Almudena, I almost missed it. The work stands off to the left of a secondary entrance on the cathedral's east side above...More

My wife and I went to visit the Almudena Cathedral recently and at the back of the building we took a look at the beautiful statue of Pope John Paul II. I think that the statue does the Pope justice and is quite beautiful.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
