Near the beginning of this walk we came upon the landmark statue of Sagrada Corazon (Sacred Heart) This is the Neo-Gothic church of The Sacred Heart, built by Jose Maria Basterra in 1891, for the Jesuit order. Quite a large terracotta building.

Again, I'm afraid that this church was closed at the time of my visit, which was a shame as I understand that it has an unusual altar.
So we'll wander back onto Gran Via...

Address: Urquijo
Directions: From Plazza Moyua head along Via Gran and take 4th exit on the right. Continue forward and you'll come to this church.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
