A contemporary cathedral.

The Cathedral of Santa María la Real de la Almudena was built on the former site of Santa Maria parish, whose inhabitants venerated the medieval Almudena image of the patron saint of Madrid. Building work on the cathedral began around the end of the 19th century, in accordance with the plans of Fransico de Cubas, which had been halted during the Spanish Civil War. The work only resumed in 1944, following the plans of Fernando Chueca Goitia and Carlos Sidro. The cathedral was then consecrated by John Paul II in 1993.
