Rome in Madrid…


San Francisco el grande dome… 33Mts of diameter… Bigger than St. Paul in London, or that ‘Les invalides’ in Paris… it just takes your breath away… for a moment the Pantheon comes to your mind… and you just don’t know were you are any more… The temple dates from 1784 and is the work of the architects, Fray Francisco Cabezas, Antonio Pló and Francesco Sabatini…

San Francisco el Grande... Breathtaking!

Many tourists seem to head blindly towards the Almudena Cathedral and the Royal Palace, not even suspecting the treasures that San Francisco hides!

It's also true, however, that the insides are far more impressive than the outside :-)

¡Buen finde!
