Just at the side of the Cathedral, this Crypt is truly beautiful. I’ve never visited a crypt as fascinating as this.

Found this crypt after leaving the royal palace (which is about 50m away). It is not as busy as the other places in Madrid and I found the silence to be deafening and a little haunting. Free entrance but a 1-2 euro donation is requested....More

The crypt is not old. I didn’t see anything more than 25 years old. I was just expecting something different. It’s nice but not old and I wasn’t expecting that.

There is a separate entry outside the Cathedral to the crypt, and we came to know about the crypt after visiting the Cathedral. The crypt is a very calm and cool place to walk around after a long day at the Royal Palace and Cathedral....More

A very interesting religious place of rest to explore below the main cathedral. The large stone columns dominate in contrast to wrought iron gates along the sides. There’s a soothing low temperature. Plus there are nice stained glass features. Small donation to enter and toilets...More

This is a small chapel and group of family crypts under the cathedral. It's actually more interesting than the cathedral in reality.

We ran into a fellow tourist who suggested we stop in here. We'd been upstairs at the church and it was a nice segue to going downstairs to the Crypt. Another reviewer said this is kind of off the beaten track. I would agree. It...More

Close to the Palacio Real and Almudena Cathedral, you can find the Almudena Crypt Chapel It is a not old building, it follows the NEO-reoman style and it is a very quiet place

Not overrun with tourists, this chapel is off the main road and probably overlooked given the proximity of the royal palace. There is no fixed cost to enter and they just ask for a donation. The chapel is extremely peaceful and beautiful with lovely cloisters....More
