Almudena Cathedral

#thingstodo Magnificent cathedral in Madrid, right across from the royal palace. Prayed for my wife, my family, my friends and my country in this beautiful peaceful place. Hope the prayers were well received Absolutely stunning!!!!!!!!! Everything was beautifully crafted and amazing. The electric candles were a bit weird, but I guess that saves waste so I'm for it in the end. I could feel the spirituality of the place even though I am not part of that religion. It was grand and powerful and yet the story behind it was very vulnerable. It is based on the story of when people were ruling Spain (I can't remember which dynasty) and they were not allowed to practice Catholicism and when they took back the city behind the wall they found one virgin Mary statue with the candles still lit and it became a symbol of perseverance in religion. Wish the Catholics didn't then go and do that to everyone else but cute story.
