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 .
