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

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!

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

Unique exterior and beautiful paintings inside, a little off the main streets, but do make a visit, popular with local people

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
