The crypt of the almudena

The Crypt of the Cathedral of Madrid, Romanesque Revival style, is under the Cathedral and has the same dimensions as the same. This is the most spectacular crypt Spain, mainly due to its 400 columns, whose capitals are all different. In the transept there are 50 monolithic columns. in the capitals represent biblical scenes, nature, Virgin and even the quintessential symbol of Madrid (The Bear and the Strawberry Tree). In total, the Crypt has 20 chapels, whose construction involved renowned artists such as Benlliure. However, the crown jewel of the Crypt is the image of Our Lady of Flor de Lis, one of Madrid's oldest, dating to the early eleventh century. Also the Cristo del Buen Camino, eighteenth century, is a highly revered beautiful artistic piece. The windows that illuminate the chapels, Maumejean work, are very beautiful and spectacular. We strongly recommend strolling through its columns and enjoy the beauty of the windows and the silence that reigns there.

La cripta de la almudena

La Cripta de la Catedral de Madrid, de estilo neorrománico, se encuentra bajo la Catedral y tiene las mismas dimensiones que la misma.
Se trata de la cripta más espectacular de España, debido sobre todo a sus 400 columnas, cuyos capiteles son todos diferentes. En el crucero del templo hay 50 columnas monolíticas. en los capiteles se representan escenas bíblicas, de la naturaleza, de la Virgen e incluso el símbolo de Madrid por excelencia (El Oso y El Madroño).
En total, la Cripta consta de 20 capillas, en cuya construcción intervinieron artistas de renombre como Benlliure.
No obstante, la joya más preciada de la Cripta es la imagen de Nuestra Señora de la Flor de Lis, una de las más antiguas de Madrid, datada a comienzos del siglo XI.
También el Cristo del Buen Camino, del siglo XVIII, es una hermosa pieza artística muy venerada.
Las vidrieras que iluminan las capillas, obra de Maumejean, son muy bellas y espectaculares.
Es absolutamente recomendable pasear entre sus columnas y disfrutar de la belleza de las vidrieras y del silencio que allí reina.
