Catedral de la Almudena.
The construction of Catedral de la Almudena in honor of Our Lady of Almudena took place in the XVI century. However, actual works started only in 1879. The project was designed by architect Francisco de Cubas. During the period of the Spanish Civil War all construction works were suspended. The cathedral was completely rebuilt and consecrated by Pope John Paul II only in 1993. Its interior decoration is distinguished by a contemporary style. Many modern works of art were used in the decoration of the cathedral.
