Before I travel to any new country/international city, I research the local Basilicas and Cathedrals. This one was an unexpected treasure. Unlike many churches characterized by ornate decor and artisanship, the Ingesia de San Anton is unassumed in many respects. The stand outs are not...More
We watch a TEDx talk on Plaza Mayor the night before where they talked about this place.
Coincidence or not, when we were walking by we found this unique place.

This church never closes it's doors and welcomes everyone. During our visit there were a handful of needy people sleeping on the pews and others were eating free food the church had provided. Charity is the virtue of this church.
24 hours open, free wi-fi, free coffee and food for all the homeless and even for pets.
I am very impressed with this beautiful social service.
For me, this is a real church, real love for people.

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.
