The Church of San Nicolás de los Servitas

Right in the middle of medieval Madrid is located the oldest church in the city: The Church of San Nicolás de los Servitas (or Church of San Nicolas de Bari).  The Bell-Tower is what interest people the most, since it was built on top of an Arab minaret of an old Muslim mosque.  If you look carefully at the top of the tower you can notice that there were several architectural styles and the lower part is of a Moorish descent.  This site is definitely for old-architectural lovers or history connoisseurs.  I also enjoy arriving to the church and walking through its tight and old-fashion streets.  The streets surrounding the church are excellent for writers and photographers looking for interesting stories…
