The cathedral is also home to a museum which will guide you through the history of Almudena and where you can explore various historical artifacts, such as manuscripts and pieces of clothing. You can also visit a Neo-Romanesque crypt.Step back in time with a guided tour of the Royal Palace of Madrid, and the Almudena Cathedral - the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Madrid.
