Spain


The Madrid Temple was erected in the capital of Spain which is located in the heart of the Iberian peninsula and right in the center of the Castillian plain 646 meters above sea level, with a population of over three million. A cosmopolitan city, a business center, headquarters for the Public Administration, Government, Spanish Parliament and the home of the Spanish Royal Family. Here in this complex one can find peace and serenity.


After Madrid we went to Málaga. The inner city of Málaga is just behind the harbour. The church of Santiago (St James) in the background of the photo is a splendid manifestation of Gothic-Mudéjar the hybrid style that evolved after Reconquista incorporating elements from both Christian and Islamic tradition. The Cathedral and the Episcopal palace were planned with renaissance ideals but fell short of funds and were finished in baroque style.
