“Breathtaking and wonderful”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

One of the must see churches in Madrid. Stunning dome, fantastic artwork and just wonderful architecture. Goya's painting, including his self inclusion a bonus. Friendly meet and greet and it's only a couple of euros so no reason not to go. If you are near any of the main attractions at the top of town do go, it's worth it

“The most beautiful church in Madrid”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

No words to describe its beauty. It should be Madrid's cathedral since it's far away the most beautiful church around the city.

“I preferred this to the Cathedral”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

This is a lovely church with the most amazing dome and many works of art including some by Goya. It's nothing special from the outside but you'll be delighted as you step inside. It doesn't cost much and you can have a guided tour. Well worth a visit.

“A fantastic hidden gem”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Amazing that this place is not packed.
Well worth the visit for the grand majesty of the dome alone. Everywhere you look there is magnificence and better still you are almost alone. A truly wonderful experience.
