Beautiful cathedral that is right next to the palace. Quite a few people inside of the church when we visited. I loved the stained glass windows and the art inside. Plenty of pews for people to sit and pray. A quiet and respectful place with prayers daily. The exterior is nice as well.

A serene and beautifully build cathedral. It's a great historical landmark very close to several other worthwhile landmarks in Madrid. I really enjoyed the peacefulness or the cathedral, especially after a long week of traveling. Make sure you check the service schedule so you don't try to tour during mass.

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.
Alongside this cathedral near the crypt is the best place to view stunning sunsets.
The cathedral itself is free to enter and has beautiful stained glass windows and an amazing ceiling.
Beautiful cathedral mixing the history of Spain and its modenity. Also, I went to Easter mass and I've never heard a priest so greatly proclaim the Gospel! Preach on, brother!
