Primary Vault

Vault Detail,Almudena Cathedral, Madrid, Spain.

Almudena Cathedral is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Madrid. Begun in 1879, the Gothic revival style church was not completed until 1993, when it was consecrated by Pope John Paul II.  The ceiling and the vaults are decorated with vivid decorative paintings. Most interior decorations are contemporary, although art displayed in the side chapels is a mixture of traditional and modern.
