Start the day in say, Toledo. A nice medieval sort of town and finish your day at the end of the Paseo del Prado purchasing churros to take back to your hotel.  See Count Orgaz being buried as the old gate is no longer there and you can see the painting much better. Now there is no doubt NO ONE wants you in their church, as you are ushered in and then out onto the street.
