A cradle of illustrious Madrileños
Torrelaguna’s old town has the same illustrious character as the people who were born in this village—including Cardinal Cisneros and Santa María de la Cabeza—and those that lived among its streets, such as San Isidro Labrador. Cardinal Cisneros himself spared no expense when it came to increasing the size of the village with the church of Santa María Magdalena, an example of Madrid-style Gothic architecture; el Pósito (the Granary); the old Santísima Trinidad hospital; and the Franciscanos de la Madre de Dios convent. Hundreds of years later its authentic scenery made Torrelaguna an ideal movie set. Actors like Sophia Loren, Cary
Grant and Frank Sinatra got to experience the town’s antique beauty firsthand during the filming of The Pride and the Passion.
