    San Jeronimo is the church that is used by the Royal family. For instance the coronation of King Carl I was held here, 1975.
    The church was a part of the Hieronymus monastery and was built in the 16th century by Queen Isabel (it has been rebuilt since).

    Built in the 15th century, Iglesia de San Jerónimo el Real and its nonextant monastery were used by Catholic monarchs as a place of retreat, or retiro in Spanish, then located just outside the city of Madrid. The function of this monastery and church later bestowed the nearby Parque del Retiro with its name. In the war of independence against Napoleon, the monastery was destroyed and the church severely damaged. While the monastery was never rebuilt, the church underwent several restorations since then, including one just recently. Los Jerónimos, as it is also known, is located right behind Museo del Prado.

    The beautiful medieval San Jeronimo el Real Church was once part of the Hieronymite monastry which was built during Henry IV of Castile’s reign near the Manzanares River. Due to flooding, the monastry was moved next to the Royal Palace and reconstructed for Ferdinand and Isabel in 1503. Additions and reconstructions have gone on through the centuries including the addition of subterranean passagewasys which link the church to the Cason del Buen Retiro.

    The church is open daily from 8.00am – 1.30pm and 5.00pm – 6.30pm
