Notes on the Geography of Spain: Madrid: Photo 81
Tucked into the dense urban fabric, the Church of San Isidro is historically important, even though physically easy to overlook. It was originally part of the Jesuit Imperial College. After the Jesuits were expelled from Spain, it became a parish church but was then elevated to the status of the city's cathedral, which it remained from 1885 until 1993. The architect was the Jesuit Pedro Sánchez, and he followed the pattern established in Rome's Jesuit church of Il Gesù.
