La Real Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida is famous for Goya's frescoes on ceiling and dome, made in 1798. Also, the chapel hosts his burial place. It's a small church, about 1,5 km far from downtown, but I suggest to pay a visit to it, if have time and if you like Goya.

We took the Julia tour trip. Our guide Carmen was knowledgeable and also spoke great English. Excellent tour and an insight into Spanish history from Phillip II onwards.

This chapel is off the beaten path, so to speak. It is small and rather plain on the outside. However, the inside is beautiful although it is only one room. Goya painted the frescoes on the ceiling and they are awesome. Goya's tomb is also inside the chapel. For ease of viewing, there are mirrors throughout the room that allow... More

This small chapel looks very modest from outside. Inside the chapel there are very beautiful floor paintings by Goya. The tomb of Goya is also here.

Goya is one of my favorite artists and we missed seeing his paintings in the Prado and the Reina Sofia so we went out of our way to find the Ermita de San Antonio. The restored frescoes were amazing and with Goya buried inside the chapel, I felt we were truly in the presence of the Master. With the Ermita... More

We stayed in the Puerta del Sol area of Madrid, but decided with all the wonderful reviews to make the trek out to the Hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida for a visit. While this is a special place as Goya's resting place and the frescoes were breathtaking, I wish I hadn't made a special trip. If I was... More

Any one visiting Madrid should find time for this little Hermitage home to Goyas tomb. The frescos he painted decorating this little hermitage are the best iv seen and should not be missed at any cost. The arrangement of mirrors to view the frescos is brilliant and all for free. The best value in Madrid.

After seeing the Goya's in the Prado, this is absolutely spectacular. in our opinion, the frescos are some of his best work. Sit down, relax, and look upward at some of the best art around. Take your time to enjoy the beauty. This is a wonderful location and venue for this work. Easy to get to but off the normal... More
