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.

"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
—Malachi 4:5–6
