Very interesting church but not overdone
May 2017 • Couples
I thought this was a more conservatively decorated church and set in the Plaza del Felipe square. There were many children playing ball out the front and everyone seemed to be very happy. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

Impressive Altar
Oct 2012 • Couples
The Church of San Felipe is located at Calle del Ciprés, 2. It is also called the Church of San Felipe and Santiago the Minor. The church was constructed in 1686 by the Marques de Villaverde to replace a church that had become too small. The marques lived in a palace beside the church, which was later occupied by the Conde de Arguillo. In 1752 the architect Ventura Rodriguez modernized the structure to give it the Neoclassic style.

The façade features two Solomonic columns and above the main door are two sculptures of the two saints the church venerates. There are three naves in the church. The central nave is decorated with the figures of nine apostles that were made by Jose Ramirez Arellano. He also created the gilded pulpit and the main altarpiece. The chapels have Baroque retables. There is a baldachin at the main altar that resembles the baldachin designed by Bernini for St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
