Impressive outside, marbled inside. With 2 lovely stain glass windows above the confessionals. Great paintings above the altar area and ceiling.

You are in a catholic country so expect a lot of gold and side alters each dedicated to a different saint. Good atmosphere in which to pray and meditate.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding at this beautiful church and just want to tell travellers how lovely it is. There are some marvellous paintings and the ceiling is amazing - it's a very high ceiling and quite wonderful. Definitely worth...More

The Basilica de San Miguel is a nice little church. Free entrance. Nice interior and decorations. Not many visitors when we were there.

The basilica de San Miguel is a wonderful little church tucked away in a close neighbourhood. Easily missed however as it can take a little bit of walking to find but as you can see from the photos it is worth the effort!

The building is a great site with it's twin bell towers topping it's facade. Four statues surrond the building representing Charity, Fortitude, Faith and Hope. There are two carvings showing the child-martyrs put to death by the Romans.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
