"Almudena Cathedral" Almudena Cathedral Tip by Frisbeeace

Almudena Cathedral, Madrid: 69 reviews and 135 photos

  Almudena Cathedral
by Frisbeeace

The Cathedral is just in front of the Royal Palace. It was consacrated by Pope John Paul in 1993 following a construction period of more than 100 years. Princess Felipe got married here last May.

The Cathedral is simple and modern in comparison to other Spanish cathedrals. It has a mix of contemporary and older styles. It is not as impressive as one would expect for a European country with such a long history.
