Overview

This church contains a magnificent collection of frescoes by Lucas Jordán (Luca Giordano), outstanding paintings by Ricci and some beautiful altarpieces. The building has an elliptic base and a classical façade with a vaulted niche to hold the image of San Antonio. The interior is full of light and there's a wonderful spire. It was designed by Pedro Sánchez to serve as a hospital-chapel for the Portuguese passing through Madrid. After Portugal gained its independence, the church was donated to the German members (Alemanes, hence the name) of Mariana Neoburg's entourage. She was Carlos II's second wife. Mass: 9:45a, noon & 7:30p Su
