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.

"Within the sound of my voice are individuals who have received the ordinances of the temple and for various reasons have not returned to the house of the Lord in quite some time. Please repent, prepare, and do whatever needs to be done so you can again worship in the temple and more fully remember and honor your sacred covenants."
—David A. Bednar
