Madrid Cathedral, Santa María la Real de La Almudena, is a modern building and is generally viewed with mixed emotions by Madrileños. Some like it, but just as many don’t. The cathedral was first ‘talked about’ in the late 16th century, but construction didn’t actually begin until 1879. Due to the Civil War, the project was abandoned until 1950 but the cathedral was finally consecrated by Pope John Paul II on June 15th 1993.
