Charming little basilica

You are in a catholic country so expect a lot of gold and side alters each dedicated to a different saint. Good atmosphere in which to pray and meditate.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding at this beautiful church and just want to tell travellers how lovely it is. There are some marvellous paintings and the ceiling is amazing - it's a very high ceiling and quite wonderful. Definitely worth a visit, if not for a wedding!

The Basilica de San Miguel is a nice little church. Free entrance. Nice interior and decorations. Not many visitors when we were there.

The basilica de San Miguel is a wonderful little church tucked away in a close neighbourhood. Easily missed however as it can take a little bit of walking to find but as you can see from the photos it is worth the effort!

This is a beautiful sanctuary of worship. Construction began in 1739 and completed in 1745 and is a baroque church and minor basilica located on San Justo Street, adjacent to the Archbishop's Palace.

This is a gorgeous church, from the fine convex façade to the ornateness that awaits within. It’s a grand vista from the back down the nave to the decorative altar area. The frescoed cupola is gorgeous. Close to the entrance is a large beautifully carved chamber. Also here were two large silver coloured decorated display structures. They may have been... More

The building is a great site with it's twin bell towers topping it's facade. Four statues surrond the building representing Charity, Fortitude, Faith and Hope. There are two carvings showing the child-martyrs put to death by the Romans.

Saw it only from the outside, so can't say much. But do not miss it if you are strolling somewhere close.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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 it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
