  • Stunning cathedral decorated, very high dome, sacrisity with paintings monuments of the 18th-year-700s. The guide is Spanish but understandable. This monument is not to be missed if you stop 4/5 days in Madrid. Admission is paid but discounted for groups and retirees.

  • Impressive basilica. One of the most beautiful cupolas in Spain (more than 30m in diameter). When inside, you can't help but feel belittled by such grandeur. The entrance is free but access to the museum will cost you a few Euros. A must-see if you are interested in breathtaking architecture.
  • There have been a handful of works of art that have moved me to tears. Upon entering this basilica, I was amazed at the beauty, the detail, and the energy that was put into its creation. Wow!
