And so much to absorb. It's like being inside a painting. And then down to the lower level and suddenly tombs with children - some of them without names
A church to be very quiet in. And think. And watch the beauty.
This small baroque church is just a short distance from Gran Via. However, it doesn’t seem to be a top tourist destination so it was not crowded at all when we visited. It is well worth seeking out though because the interior is absolutely breathtaking....More
The exterior of this church is fairly simple and doesn't give even the slightest hint of the glory inside. We stepped inside the church and gasped at the beauty. From ceiling to floor, it's painted in colorful frescos telling the store of Saint Anthony's seven...More
Iglesia De San Antonio De Los Alemanes ( St Antony Of The Germans ) is yet another beautiful church we found not to far from the wonderful Gran Via.
This is one beautiful church externally and internally,a magnificent Baroque facade and a wonderful painted interior...More
I lived in Madrid many years but it was only in a recent visit that i discovered this chapel. It is called the sixtine chapel of Madrid and that gives you an idea of the quality of the frescos you can find in the chapel....More
The outside is nothing impressive, but it is the interior that will take you by surprise! This small church was initially built as a chapel for a nearby hospital. It is quite small, but almost every inch of it is painted. Would highly recommend!
Be sure you know your way, the church is hard to be recognized from the exterior. Be careful with opening hours, 10-14 when we were there. Pay 2€ for entrance and you enter something you never seen before. No spoilers here but it is a...More
When you enter in the short slot you will pay € 2 and receive a Spanish explanation of three pages. The church is small and baroque for sure. The ceiling is one big trompe l’oeuil. Paintings of kings, queens, saints and apostles in one dazzling...More
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
