Church of Santa Cristina

The church of Santa Cristina, located at Paseo de Extremadura 32, in the neighborhood of Puerta del Angel, Madrid, is a remarkable example of neo-Mudejar architecture. It was built between 1904 and 1906 under the direction of architect Enrique María Repullés y Vargas. Originally, the church was designed in neo-Gothic style, but finally the neo-Mudejar style was adopted, characterized by the use of the Toledo facing. Founded by Queen Regent Maria Cristina of Habsburg, second wife of Alfonso XII, the church initially served as an asylum for poor children, inaugurated in 1892. During the Civil War, the church was used as a Czech and was razed to the ground, being restored and acquiring its parish personality in the 1950s. In 2019, it was merged with the parish of St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque.
