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

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...More

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...More

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!

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...More

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.

Great damage befell this church during past conflicts but significant restoration has given the grand interior we have today. The view along the nave to the fine altar area is most impressive. Lovely columns and stonework abound. The wonderful decorative dome suffuses the altar features...More

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
