“This church is just fascinating.. goes from symbolism, architecture and history. It offers you self guided tour which is great, you can take your time and its very cheap. Eveything in there has its place on what the religion actually is... :) enjoy”

Church
“Tucked at the corner end of Calle Las Damas, just before the Plaza de España esplanade—look for the double bell tower design—the Gothic style “Chapel of Our Lady of Remedies” opens its doors for occasional art and classical music events, and group tours. Originally built in the 16th century by the Dávila family, the 500-year old chapel was intended as a private religious shrine, where prominent Spanish families would congregate for prayers. It was restored in 1884, and you can view its stunning interior arches inside, period art, and a figure of the Virgen de los Remedios at the altar.”
