Oldest Madrid Church

Considered the oldest surviving church in Madrid, Iglesia de San Nicolás de los Servitas offers a rare glimpse into medieval Madrid. The oldest part of the church is the bell tower, which retained its distinctive Moorish Mudéjar style even after renovation. Inside, you can admire sculptures and paintings by Pedro de Mena, Salvatierra and Nicolas de Busy. The exterior is striking in its detail of ceramic columns propping up arcades. Although the opening hours are slightly odd, once you enter the church, you will find exhibits on the early history of Madrid from the Islamic perspective fascinating and informative. Admission is free, and donations are welcome.
