Must see · Church · Tourist Spot
The Church of la Magdalena (Spanish: Iglesia de la Magdalena) is a Gothic-style church located in Torrelaguna, central Spain. It was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1983.

It has a nave and two aisles, with Gothic vaults supported by flying buttresses between which are the side chapels, each with movable retablos. The bell tower dates to the 15th century, and was commissioned by Cardinal Cisneros, whose coat of arms, together with those of the town, can be seen externally on the third floor. The so-called "Portal of the Resurrection" (16th century) is in mixed Mudéjar–Renaissance style. The high altar is by Narciso Tomé.

  • 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.
