There is nothing justifying the energy you'll loose while visiting this church.... So I'm afraid that the single possible recommendation is: just don't do it!

Nice baroque church in La Latina quarter, hidden from the main route, but definitely worth a visit to admire lovely interior decorations. The addmision is free.

We wandered into this church on our way to the much larger church of San Francisco del Grande. Wasn't expecting much but found a beautiful baroque style gem. Apparently it is much restored after heavy damage during the civil war, but don't let that put you off, well worth 15 minutes or so.

Although a relatively small church, San Andres is worth a peak. It almost feels greek with more portraits than statues. The altar has a solid feel with it's 8 Corinthianish columns.

Great damage befell this church during past conflicts but significant restoration has given the grand interior we have today. The view along the nave to the fine altar area is most impressive. Lovely columns and stonework abound. The wonderful decorative dome suffuses the altar features with plentiful light. One impressive painting shows Our Lady ascending through the clouds surrounded by... More

We found this church, a royal church, while on our self-guided walking tour. What a find! You might visit many churches while visiting Madrid, but this one is impressive. The interior is beautiful. I would say the most beautiful interior of all the churches we visited in Madrid, although the exterior is unremarkable. Definitely worth finding.

The cupola is in an octagonal structure that has large windows, allowing much light to enter the church. The ground plan follows the Latin Cross, with a small crossing. The predominant colors in the church are gold, pink, and a dark grey. The altar is topped with a large arch that forms a semicircle. There is a large crucifix with... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
