The Church of San Manuel and San Benito is located beside the El Retiro Park at Alcala, 83, and is one of the most unusual churches in Madrid. The design is Neo-Byzantine and has the floor plan of the Greek cross. There is a large dome that shows the figures of the Four Evangelists. The dome is located behind the main reredos. The Byzantine mosaics showing Christ towering over the apostles is spectacular. Outside the church there are little towers around the dome that look like small minarets. The architect Fernando Arbos Tremanti designed it in 1902.
