What travelers say:

The Cathedral of the Virgin of Amudena, 300 meters south of the Palace of Madrid, is the youngest and most popular of the many churches in Madrid. The Spanish capital moved from Toledo to Madrid in 1561, but the church center remained in Toledo. The plan to build a main church in the new capital was not implemented until 1879, more than 300 years later. The impact of the war, the design changes, stopped construction, and officially completed in June 1993, became the latest main church in Europe. The magnificent appearance of Baroque style, white + gray plain facade, echoes and mirrors the formal palace. In 2004, the grand wedding of Crown Prince Philip of Spain (currently King Philip VI of Spain) was held here, which made the church more impressive and famous worldwide.
