Real Basilica De San Francisco El Grande Reviews & Ratings
Unexpected gem while sightseeing in Madrid. Don’t let the run down garden or facade fool you - the interiors are breathtaking and usually with small crowds, you can get a lot of time for good pictures. Only negative is no English language tour guide but that cannot take away from the beauty of this place.
Killed 2 hours waiting to get in here before it opened again at 4pm and it was worth it. Go eat and/or drink at Sanlucar while you wait. The tour is only in Spanish but whatever. Impressive space.
This is my favorite church in Madrid. It is the only church I have been on that is round inside. Beautiful walls, art, and statues fill the church. A must see!
Outside and park next door looked pretty rough for such a landmark but inside and the done were amazing. Look out for the (ahem) additions that look almost like cardboard cutout when looking up. Great monument that needs a little love to be spectacular.
Arguably one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been from an architectural standpoint. The history is fascinating, the artwork from the 1400-1500’s, the organs, the entire experience is genuinely breathtaking. Our guide was primarily Spanish speaking, but he gave brief explanations on things to English speakers too. You have the option of walking through on your own or with the guide - definitely do the tour first and then walk around to see more of what catches your eye. I can’t recommend this enough, absolutely a must see in Madrid.
