Real Basilica de San Francisco el Grande Reviews
Случайно зашли в собор, находится недалеко от королевского дворца. Вход 5 евро. Снаружи здание неказистое. Поэтому были поражены тому, что открылось взору внутри. Самый большой купол в Испании. Богата... more »Accidentally went to the cathedral, located near the royal palace. Admission 5 euros. Outside, the building is unsightly. So we were amazed at what was opening up to the eyes inside. The largest dome in Spain. Rich painting. There's a good pinacotheka. See the photo.
Ilmainen kirkko, jonka koristelu ja kupoli Espanjan hienoimpia. Pihalla ruusutarha ja näkymät esikaupunkiin. Lähellä La Latinan metroa. more »Free Church with decoration and dome of Spain's finest. Yard with a rose garden and views of the suburbs. Near La Latina Metro.
Outside and park next door looked pretty rough for such a landmark but inside and the done were amazing. Look out for the (ahem) additions that look almost like cardboard cutout when looking up. Great monument that needs a little love to be spectacular.
Arguably one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been from an architectural standpoint. The history is fascinating, the artwork from the 1400-1500’s, the organs, the entire experience is genuinely breathtaking. Our guide was primarily Spanish speaking, but he gave brief explanations on things to English speakers too. You have the option of walking through on your own or with the guide - definitely do the tour first and then walk around to see more of what catches your eye. I can’t recommend this enough, absolutely a must see in Madrid.
