In a city with so many churches The Church Of St Nicholas Of The Servitas ( Iglesia De San Nicolas De Servitas ) may not be the most beautiful of churches but this splendid looking 15th century church is one of the oldest .
This is a charming XVth Century Church located in a small street very near the Cathedral and the San Miguel Market. Small and cosy it is refreshing to attend Mass there as it is more intimate. It is also the Church for the Italian community...More
Church of St. Nicholas of the Servitas (San Nicolas de las Servitas) is situated in the plaza of the same name and is a charming old church. The architecture of the exterior is rather confusing with its large square brick facade such that it is...More
It was a bit hard to find. We persevered. I thought church opened at 6.30pm; decided to ring bell in the back just to check. I was told they open at 7pm.
True, it is not very grand. We tried to translate what little texts...More
As a tour destination, I can't really recommend this church. We attended mass here, and the parish was pleasant, but the church is devoid of grand artwork or splendid architectural statements. The bell tower was nice and announced its presence loudly. But you wouldn't have...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 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.
