The crypt of Francisco Goya is in the chapel and he also painted the ceiling. Like many other crypts, photos are prohibited. the chapel is small and doesn't take long to visit. I'm glad i saw it, but once is enough.

This little tiny chuch has some great Goya frescos and they make it easy to see them with strategically placed mirrors. It is free and I was the only person there on a Thursday morning!

This is a long walk from the Metro but it is worth every step! The artwork is wonderful, thankfully there are 4 mirrors to help see the ceiling and cupola. Great artists deserve a great memorial like this. Take a few minutes to watch the video, even if you don't speak Spanish, it helps understand how preservation is done

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

Francisco Goya’s place of eternal rest, is the home to one of the first jobs, the Miracle of St. Anthony of Padua. This is a great cozy full of art!
