Catedral De La Almudena, Madrid Reviews

  • One of the most interesting places of Christian art of Madrid. Interesting just form the touristic point of view but also good place for payer. I recommend to visit the underground part of the church. It has unique atmosphere of recollection and peace.

  • I was expecting another medieval cathedral, not realizing that this one was only completed in the 1980s. Seeing the 'updated' version was fantastic. Beautiful interiors. Incredible stained glass, casting cool light inside.

  • I loved the architecture. It's very bright and transmits a fresh joyful atmosphere inside. Please don't miss visiting the small chapel to the right of the altar where the tabernacle for the sacred sacrament is kept.

  • For a modern Cathedral it is not too bad but not one of the great cathedrals of the world. I would say it is worth a visit but not a long stay!

  • It's just one of thousands of churches from 19th century period of copying the past. The fact that it was finished in the end of 20th century only makes it less interesting as a piece of art. I think Madrid could just accept it's lack of cathedral, already being one of the most beautiful capital cities of Europe.
