Hotels near Cathedral of the Almudena in Madrid - Best deals & budget rates!

The Cathedral of the Almudena is considered a sacred location by many. Built slowly during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, it stands on land where the first mosque ever in Madrid was built, and also where a church that had been dedicated to Saint Maria de la Almundena, a patron saint in Madrid. In design, the cathedral is both Neoclassical as well as Neo-Gothic, because two different architects supervised the building. The Cathedral of the Almudena was finally completed in 1993, and consecrated by Pope John Paul II.

This is a unique structure, simply because it has such a blend of styles, and took so long to complete. Its stained glassed windows are simply beautiful. It is a very large cathedral, 104 meters long and 76 meters wide. The cathedral’s central dome is 20 meters in diameter. These measurements add up to make a good sized structure.
