This is the final resting place of Lope de Vega. The church has two entrances: one on Calle de San Sebastián, which retains the antique façade remodelled by Juan Antonio Cuervo in 1829, and another on Calle de Atocha.
The old church of San Sebastián, which was built between 1554 and 1578 by master builder Antonio Sillero, was restored by Juan Bautista Monegro and Teodoro Ardemans during the 18th century. This original church was destroyed by a bombing raid in 1936. The new construction was undertaken by Francisco Íñiguez Almech in 1943. It was opened to the public in 1959. The current church was built using masonry from the older church but is completely modern in design.
