Founded in the early 17th century by Cristobal de Sandoval y Rojas, the Iglesia Catedral Castrense was established as the temple of the ancient monastery for the Bernardine nuns of Madrid. The place was originally designed in the form of a Latin cross by architect Juan Gómez de Mora but was restored after its destruction throughout the early 18th century.

Today, the remains of the demolished church showcases the best of the baroque style of design in Madrid and is home to some rare art pieces including paintings by Luca Giordano, intricate frescoes and the main altar-piece designed by Gregorio Ferro .

If you want to explore the less-crowded places in the city or simply love art, don’t miss out on this church.

  • Passed by this church and shaped a photo. Didn't get to go inside due to time constraints

  • Just passed by this church and hence the photo

  • Drawn beautifully of the cityscape .

  • Su sobria fachada le da un aspecto de enorme mausoleo. Conocida como Catedral Castrense fue terminada a mediados del siglo XVII. De estilo barroco.

  • La Iglesia del Sacramento o Iglesia Catedral de las Fuerzas Armadas es una iglesia de estilo barroco madrileño construida al lado del Palacio de Uceda, ambas edificaciones fueron mandadas levantar por Cristobal Gómez de Sandoval, Duque de Uceda. Como en la mayoría de las iglesias no es fácil entrar salvo en horario de culto, y esta algo más debido a su carácter castrense, pero algunas mañanas entre semana está abierta y pidiendo permiso en la conserjería que hay antes de entrar al templo dejan hacerlo. Una iglesia magnífica y muy bien conservada, merece la pena entrar.
