The temple is part of a complex with a stake center, missionary training center, and temple patron housing facilities referred to by some as the "Temple Square of Madrid."
Missionary work was able to commence in Spain when a religious liberty law was passed in 1967, allowing for the official recognition of the LDS Church. Clark Hinckley, son of President Gordon B. Hinckley, was among the first four missionaries sent to Spain from other Spanish-speaking missions.1
