First i didn't think it's worth visiting when my colleague suggested me to run in her turn to stay in line. This gothic- outside and baroque-inside looking church is really worth visiting. My visit matched wedding ceremony.
Definitely worth a visit. This is a typical renaissance style palace, library, basilica, mausoleum and gardens. This is the place where Spain’s royalty are buried in a crypt - it was very special to see. There is so much history I would highly recommend a...More

We came across San Jeronimo el Real while leaving the Prado Museum, late in the evening. Unfortunately at the time the church was closed and we were unable to go inside. However even from the outside the architectural merits of the building are very high....More

This temple is beautiful. It is next to Prado Museum. There is mass every Sunday at 10.00 a.m. noon, 1.00 p.m. 2.00 p.m. and 7.00 p.m.. The inside has an amazing back altar. It takes only a few minutes to visit it.
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On 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
Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
