Ok don’t miss this if you’re interested in History of the Catholic Church in Madrid. Beautiful altar pieces and magnificent vestments plus manuscripts. Easily viewable in 1 to 2 hours plus the ability to climb the tower and see the city scape and view of...More

Thank you for your opinion and we're glad you liked the museum and the panoramic views of the city from the dome.

We only visited the cathedral, not the museum, and it was magnificent. There is no charge for entry but a suggested donation of one Euro per person, which is a bargain. The side chapels were fascinating and diverse and the vaulted and painted ceilings are...More

If you are in Madrid, I think this is one of the most overlooked but best things to do in Spain. The key is to timing it correctly. I honestly have little interest in the museum itself, but for the 6€ it is worth it...More

When you think you've seen them all, you stille have to visit this cathedral. Just enter at the front, at the palace-side where the paid tour starts. Is has a history comparable to Segrada in Barcelona. Beautiful modern stained glass windows. And don't forget the...More

As you might guess there is religious art here. But do not miss the view from the dome. It is not old as some churches but it was well organized and cool.

The view from atop the church is great. The museum was ok, not very relevant unless you are catholic.

Access to the dome is included in the entry fee for the museum. The visit to the museum begins with the two chambers of the Cathedral;: the Chapterhouse and the Sacristy, both decorated with original mosaics by the Slovenian priest Fr. Marko Rupnik. The first...More

This cathedral has a modern interior which means it is not "more of the same". I loved the painted ceilings which were so beautiful and the stained glass was so striking. There is a small chapel for prayers which I used which was stunning -...More
