Neighbourhood: Centro
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.

Church from These 17th Century
Nov. 2020 • Solo
This is a beautiful church in La Latina neighborhood. It has a beautiful courtyard with nice trees. The dome is beautiful!
The church was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War and rebuilt in the 90s.

Cultural icon!

We like visiting church buildings, not for religious reasons, but purely from an aesthetic point of view. And so it was with Iglesia de San Andres. We stumbled across it and went in. Looks rather interesting. It's quite different from many other church buildings and it has a certain appeal, considering its unusual architectural looks. It's much nicer inside than nit is outside. Worth checking out if you are around the area.

Spectacular Dome
Dec. 2018
Came across this small church more by accident but I decided to take a quick look inside and the most impressive thing is the Dome above the Alter. Worth a very quick visit for this alone

Very fine church

Iglesia de San Andres is one of the most impressive churhes both inside and out. The interior is more unusual due to all the dark marble in the alter and other fearures in the church. Great location set in its own square giving unobstructed views of the great church.

Small structure, great history
Sep. 2017 • Solo
built in 1622 the small church lasted since and during the Moorish occupation. Most on the inside was destroyed and stolen during the Spanish Civil war, this is the reason the interior is mostly wood.
You dont have to plan ahead and make a big detour, it is central, close to the other old tourist attractions in Madrid. I actually passed by it twice in 5 days. Stop by, it is worth it.

Not worth the detour

There is nothing justifying the energy you'll loose while visiting this church.... So I'm afraid that the single possible recommendation is: just don't do it!

Hidden Gem, Lovely Decorations
Jun. 2016 • Couples
Nice baroque church in La Latina quarter, hidden from the main route, but definitely worth a visit to admire lovely interior decorations. The addmision is free.

A small gem
May 2016 • Friends
We wandered into this church on our way to the much larger church of San Francisco del Grande. Wasn't expecting much but found a beautiful baroque style gem. Apparently it is much restored after heavy damage during the civil war, but don't let that put you off, well worth 15 minutes or so.

Small but stately
Nov. 2014 • Couples
Although a relatively small church, San Andres is worth a peak. It almost feels greek with more portraits than statues. The altar has a solid feel with it's 8 Corinthianish columns.
