The visit starts with two chambers of the Cathedral: the Chapterhouse and the Sacristy, both decorated with original mosaics by the Slovene priest Fr. Marko Rupnik.

The first gallery is dedicated to the history of the Church in Madrid and its two patron saints: Santa María la Real de la Almudena and Saint Isidro Labrador. After climbing the stairs we reach the highest point of the tour, from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the capital city. The second gallery is an exhibition about the Catholic Church Liturgy through the objects used in the celebrations.

Opening Hours.

Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 2:30 pm.

Closed on sunday and days of special cult acts.
