Facing the royal palace, the cathedral of Almudena is the seat of the Archdiocese of Madrid. It was built recently, during the 20th century.
In 1993 it is consecrated by Pope John Paul II and thus becomes the first cathedral consecrated by a pope in Spain.
The cathedral is neo-Gothic in style and neoclassical in exterior, and measures 102m long and 73m high.
