Madrid Temple Square

The Madrid Spain Temple is in an area commonly known as the Madrid "Temple Square". Here is a satellite view of the area.
On the satellite photo, Building 1 is, of course, the temple.

Building 2 is the Stake Center where we will attend church in a local ward.

Building 3 is where we will live. The basement is for storage and laundry. The ground floor is the Distribution Center, the Employment Center, the Institute, an office, and one apartment. The 1st floor (that's the way they number floors in Spain) has the kitchen and dining area and four apartments for single sister temple missionaries. The 2nd floor is the hostel for temple guests. The 3rd floor contains the apartments for the temple missionaries. We will be in apartment #301. The 4th, 5th, and 6th floors are the MTC. The 6th floor has apartments for the MTC and temple presidents.

Area 4 is the fountain and garden area adjacent to the temple.

(Thanks to Brother and Sister Eby for supplying us with this information.)


  1. Wonderful view and description. I had no idea the Church had such a major complex in Spain. Bob Cannon

  2. I'm planning a trip to Spain and like to go through the Madrid Temple. I would like to know how much is to stay in one of the Hostels while attend the Temple. Please, any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.
