"Almudena" Almudena Cathedral Tip by maestrousmc

Almudena Cathedral, Madrid: 67 reviews and 132 photos

by maestrousmc

A ten minute walk from Plaza del Sol (of course everything is contingent upon how many copas you have on the way), Almudena possess a notable Gothic facade. With several chapels containing poignant images of the saints its interior - for all my fellow architecture lovers - is considered to be modern for its time.

Note that mass is still observed so plan your free tour of its interior accordingly. Nonetheless, should your visit coincide with this, there are plenty of photo ops.

During Christmas an awe-inspiring nativity scene is positioned outside.
