Iglesia de la Magdalena reviews

This is a huge Cathedral and in front if the entrance built into the facade is a solar clock. Hard to find but it's there! more »
Amazing church located in the Madrid town of Torrelaguna. Gothic style dating back to the 14th century. It is declared a World Heritage Site. Must. You do not expect a temple of these characteristics in a small town of Madrid that retains much of its ancient essence.
