Temple Facts

The Madrid Spain Temple was the first temple built in Spain.

The Madrid Spain Temple is part of a complex with a stake center, missionary training center, and temple patron housing facility often referred to as the "Temple Square of Madrid."

Missionary work commenced in Spain when a religious liberty law was passed in 1967, allowing for the official recognition of the Church. Clark Hinckley, son of President Gordon B. Hinckley, was among the first four missionaries sent to Spain from other missions.

"For verily this generation shall not all pass away until an house shall be built unto the Lord, and a cloud shall rest upon it, which cloud shall be even the glory of the Lord, which shall fill the house."
—D&C 84:5
