The Cathedral of La Magdalena (Spanish: Catedral de La Magdalena) is a cathedral located in Getafe, Spain. For most of its life the building was a church before becoming a cathedral in 1991 with the creation of the Diocese of Getafe.
The church, designed by Alonso de Covarrubias and Juan Gómez de Mora, was begun in the 16th century and finished in 1770. The bell tower, dating to a pre-existing edifice from the mid-14th century, is in Mudéjar style, while the rest of it is predominantly Renaissance or Baroque.
The high altar was executed in 1612-1618 by sculptors Antonio de Herrera and Antón de Morales after a design by Alonso Carbonel, while the paintings were added starting from 1639 by José Leonardo, Angelo Nardi and Félix Castelo.
The building was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1958
