Overview

This church contains valuable paintings by Alonso Cano, El Greco, José Adams, Villabrille and Salvatierra along with an exact copy of a Ricci painting destroyed by fire in 1824. The tower is majestic, the three naves are separated by arches and side chapels and the altarpieces belong to the neoclassical-Romantic school. Famous playwright, Lope de Vega, was baptized here and famous poet, Francisco de Quevedo, was married here. One of the most curious items on display is a stuffed crocodile that's said to have been brought over from the Americas during the reign of Fernando and Isabel. You'll find it by Puerta del Sol.
