San Francisco El Grande is without a doubt my favorite church in Madrid - and it doesn't receive the recognition that it deserves! Just down the street from the Almudena Cathedral, the smaller church often gets overshadowed. While its exterior may pale in comparison, you will fall in love with the interior. And, the last time I went, it was free to enter, unlike the Almudena!
San Francisco''s cathedral was built in the Madrid city in the south of a 13th century Abbey on the site. It is said that the monastery is by the st. Francis (St Francis) monk built during the pilgrimage to Spain, internal mainly USES in the 19th century decorative style.
Simply one of the best architecturals visits you can make. An impressive dome you shouldn´t miss! ; )
Founded in 1761, it has the fourth largest dome in the world. The most important collection of the church is Goya's painting San Bernardino.
Beautiful baroque church, with spectacular frescoes in the churches cupolas.
The church is a Roman Catholic church. Its architecture is neoclassical and was built in the second half of the 18th century. In the church there are murals painted by Goya and Francisco De Subalang. It used to be a national ancestral temple, where famous Spanish artists and politicians were buried. The dome of the church is very beautiful. Unlike the general dome of the 18th century, the dome is closer to the style of the Pantheon.
