The Almudena Cathedral is well known among local people; it is an authentic Catholic church in Madrid, Spain. It is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Madrid. The place of God was blessed by Pope John Paul II in 1993. Right when the capital of Spain was traded from Toledo to Madrid in 1561, the seat of the Church in Spain remained in Toledo and the new capital had no basilica. The Neo-Gothic inside is strangely present day, with places of petition and statues of contemporary pros, in heretogeneous styles, from recorded rebuilding efforts to "pop-workmanship" complex format.
The Blessed Sacrament Chapel features mosaic from known expert Fr. Marko Ivan Rupnik. The Neo-Romanesque grave houses a sixteenth century photo of the Virgen de la Almudena. Close-by along the Calle Mayor Excavations has revealed remains of Moorish and medieval city dividers.
