Madrid - Part 3

Our next stop was at Santa María de la Almudena, a relatively modern cathedral when compared with those in Segovia, Salamanca and León. The Catholic cathedral, consecrated in 1993 (although construction on it began in 1879) is located next to the Palacio Real. Inside, and much to their surprise, students found brilliantly colored stained glass windows and vibrant paintings.
