The Goya frescos in this building are magnificent; it's well worth the visit, plus there is no charge, There's a beautiful little book in English for only 1 euro so you can enjoy the frescos when you are at home.

You have to visit this to improve your understanding of Goya's work. It is worth a visit and it's for free! You can also take the opportunity to walk along the river just up to Principe Pio's station.

In what once was the outskirts of Madrid you can find one of Madrid's 'musts'. This gem is an 18th-century basilica which is decorated with frescoes by the famous Spanish painter Goya, who was unique in his style of painting. If you are an art lover, don't miss it.

A short walk from Principe Pio, this small chapel was decorated by Goya. The frescoes are truly amazing, we didn't want to leave. No photography allowed, but there's an excellent, well-illustrated guide booklet available for only one euro. Round off your visit by crossing the railway line and walking back to the city through the Parque del Oeste.

20 minute walk from the palace and you're at the final resting place of Goya and since Goya was a gentleman, he painted the walls and ceilings of his final resting place with his own INCREDIBLE art work. No photos allowed which I understand but it's a shame because you are going to want to take lots of pictures to... More

This place is not worth the time/effort it takes to find it. The frescoes are noteworthy, but there are so many other works of Goya in the rest of Madrid that this tiny tribute should not be high on your list. Die-hard Goya fans may relish the chance to see his tomb but that, too, is a bit anticlimactic.

A hidden gem worth visiting. The figures reflect the everyday people Goya knew. The journey from Madrid centre was very easy by public transport.

It's worth it to go out of your way to see this church, which is a museum. In fact, they built an identical church across the street so that they could preserve the artwork in here. And the artwork? Well, it's an incredibly beautiful frescoed ceiling by Goya -- the only place you'll see his work outside of a regular... More

make sure you call before you visit we went all the way down there during their business hour and it was closed. We weren't the only sad travelers there
