We ran into a fellow tourist who suggested we stop in here. We'd been upstairs at the church and it was a nice segue to going downstairs to the Crypt. Another reviewer said this is kind of off the beaten track. I would agree. It...More

Close to the Palacio Real and Almudena Cathedral, you can find the Almudena Crypt Chapel It is a not old building, it follows the NEO-reoman style and it is a very quiet place

A nice place to sit for awhile and gather your thoughts after a day of walking around Madrid. It is peaceful here. I loved the beautiful columns...they claim there are 400 of them, which piqued our interest. There is also a painting of "Our Lady...More

An attractive, light Romanesque-style building, with many columns and (therefore) some interesting viewpoints. Many (largely modern) tombs of local dignitaries etc. But it is modern - so don't expect the aura of age. Some good modern stained glass. It was free to go in but...More
