The church of San Ginés de Arlés, located in calle Arenal, Madrid, is one of the oldest in the city and dates back to around the ninth century.
Only the bell tower – campanile – survives from the original structure, the church having been rebuilt in 1645.
The exterior of the church is interesting, although not particularly spectacular, but the interior is another matter. Artworks by Alonso Cano, Luca Giordano and El Greco add to the splendour of the interior.
Saint Genesius of Arles – San Ginés de Arlés – is the patron saint of secretaries and notaries
The church is only a short stroll from Puerta del Sol.
