In a city with so many beautiful churches deciding which one to visit can be hard but as we were staying not to far from Gran Via this church was one that we chanced upon as we were bimbling around this part of town.
Iglesia de San Jose (Church of San Jose) is located along Calle de Alcala at the junction with Gran Via. This is a Catholic church that is situated upon the grounds that once held a large Carmelite Convent.
The present day church was mostly constructed...More
My wife and I were walking along Calle Alcala and saw the Church of San Jose. We went inside to see it again, because we often see this church. It is on a very busy street and inside one can relax and take a few...More
We walked by the church of San Jose today and it is a lovely one to admire and take in. The detailing and colour of the building are very unique.
Didn't have time to pop in but the church itself is definitely one to see.
The Church of San Jose is located on a very street, Calle de Alcala. We enjoy visiting this church because it has important art. There is an important sculpture of the Crucified Christ by Alonso de Mena and a San Jose by Luis Salvador Carmona.
Attended the mass on Sunday and stayed to admire the beautiful artifacts and the majesty of the cathedral. The architecture and roof detail is awe inspiring. The paintings are calming. Great experience. I took many pictures giving awesome memories.
I visited the Iglesia de San Jose as part of my 8 full-day visit to Madrid and enjoyed it a bit; unfortunately, only 1 of the churches I viewed in Madrid really 'grabbed me (Iglesia de San Antonio de los Alemanes), and for me this...More
The church is on Calle Alcala, one of the most busy streets in downtown Madrid. This little church is on this street and is quiet, with few visitors. There is a niche above the entrance door that has the image of Nuestra Señora del Carmen,...More
While the church's façade is not that impressive, its interiors are of a lovely Baroque and Neo-Classical styles.
The acoustics in the church is absolutely wonderful, as it is almost totally soundproof to the noises from the busy street outside.
Don't miss the lovely Virgen...More
Calle Alcala is a very busy street and this church is located on it, but very few tourists enter the church, which is a mistake because it is a very interesting church inside, with good architecture and art.
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
