A stunning and detailed church from the outside. Unfortunately not much to see inside. Worth a quick flying visit after the Prado if you have time. However, no loss if you don’t have time to go in.

Originally built in the early 16th century, San Jerónimo El Real has been remodelled and rebuilt several times. It is not a large structure but still worth visiting (no admission charge) just to see the magnificent painting that hangs over the alter. It's a a...More

Came in here after a visit to the Prado. Quite a magnificent church and resembles an extension of the gallery with much more art. Well worth a visit.

Great centrally located church. Visited during Sunday service and was able to watch for a few minutes. Located right by the botanical gardens and museum.

Visited the church because the Prado used to be part of the monastery. Not that much to see. Link with the royals as till last century, Madrid didn't have a real cathedral.

weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
