Real Basilica De San Francisco El Grande, Madrid Reviews

  • Free very beautiful dome and ceiling frescoes. Worth sitting for ten minutes. It's unusual for a Catholic Church because totally circular

  • Worthwhile to see from the inside. Large dome, and multiple interesting works of art (also Goya) if you're into religious themes. The tour is worth taking as well, although it's only in Spanish.

  • The best church in all of Madrid. It has one of the largest domes in the world (#3). It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is amazing.

  • Not that impressive from the outside. Nice Rose Garden to the rear. It has weird opening times. Please check before you go, or else you will be disappointed.

  • A magnificient cathedral with one of the largest domes in Europe. From outside it looks a bit plain but the paintings covering the walls and ceiling are quite amazing. We visited on Sunday and could enter for free. I recommend visiting it.
