Not that much to see. Under the supervision of Opus Dei. For music lovers, there is a link between the church, Boccherini and Benito Mussolini.

This small looking church doesn't get the heart racing from the outside but inside it has a wonderful alter with an amazing backdrop behind it that is worth seeing. Check opening times before visiting.

A beautiful church. Worth stopping in to see, especially if you are in the area to see the palace. Multiple sections to see, make sure to walk completely around the building.

You are in a catholic country so expect a lot of gold and side alters each dedicated to a different saint. Good atmosphere in which to pray and meditate.

The basilica de San Miguel is a wonderful little church tucked away in a close neighbourhood. Easily missed however as it can take a little bit of walking to find but as you can see from the photos it is worth the effort!

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
