The Iglesia de Las Calatravas is a beautiful red brick church which graces the Calle de Alcala and really does stand out from all the rest. What used to be part of a convent in the mid 19th century now stands as a solo church but is still enough to make you stop and admire. We didn't enter so I... More

It was interesting to learn that this wonderful church was part of a former convent, which was demolished around the mid 19th century. Fortunately the church was spared this fate.

The Iglesia de Las Calatravas is a church that few visit. We came upon it when we walked the Calle de Alcala and we enjoyed seeing it. The interior of the church is enjoyable.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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 desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
