We have toured cathedrals all over Europe and this one is now my favorite. Why? It is the most humanistic, kind, and happy-feeling cathedral I have ever seen. No dark, brutal, scary, biblical art--instead the whole place is light and uplifting. Feels refreshing in there. Nice music playing on a modern sound system too.

Location is adjacent to the Royal Palace. Not to be missed--even just for a 15 minute walk-through. You will feel good in this place (and I am not religious!)

This is a nice cathedral, not the best you’ll see but has some interesting facts about the massive amount of Columns and the details in each. The organ is nice and the altar is especially nice.

Very beautiful building, looked amazing. We did not enter as we were just passing by, it’s right next to the royal palace. Gorgeous.

Impressive structure. Massive. Bro-Gothic style, but appears to have more modern touches as well. Fun to watch the people taking photos. Nice views of the city.

This is the place to go to get a good view (and of course some photos) of Madrid Royal Palace and Madrid city itself. The museum has great collection, and the audio guide is free - visitors can use their own headset and cellphone to connect to the museum's wifi and website. Recommended.
