Catedral de La Almudena (desde Madrid Rio)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

La catedral de Santa María la Real de la Almudena es la sede episcopal de la Archidiócesis de Madrid (España). Se trata de un templo de 102 metros de longitud y 73 de altura, construido durante los siglos XIX y XX en una mezcla de diferentes estilos: Neoclásico en el exterior, Neogótico en el interior y Neorrománico en la cripta. Fue consagrada por Juan Pablo II en su cuarto viaje a España, el 15 de junio de 1993, siendo de este modo la única catedral española dedicada por un papa. Está ubicada en el centro histórico de la ciudad. La fachada principal se encuentra frente al Palacio Real. La fachada del crucero mira hacia la calle de Bailén, y el acceso a la cripta se realiza por la Cuesta de la Vega, al final de la calle Mayor. A diferencia de la mayoría de templos cristianos, de orientación Este-Oeste, la catedral tiene una orientación Norte-Sur, fruto de su concepción como parte integrante del conjunto del Palacio Real. Está construida en piedra de Novelda (Alicante) y granito de las canteras de Colmenar de Oreja, (provincia de Madrid).
