Royals get married in this stunning 19th century neo-gothic church. Despite being much more modern than most of Spain’s churches, it is very beautiful, thanks to its magnificent stained glass windows. King Alfonso XII and his wife Maria Mercedes de Orleans Borbon are buried below the Virgin’s statue here. There is a crypt below which you must not miss: the chapels inside are owned by wealthy Spanish families, and a mural painting of Nuestra Señora de la Flor de Lys, a beautiful artwork, is here.
