It is well worth the walk, metro, bus or taxi to visit this site. It seems to go by many names (also Pantheon of Goya and Real Parroquia de San Antonio de la Florida). Regardless, the wall and celing frescos by Goya are a delight. No line up at all but remember no photos are allowed at all here. It... More

We ventured over to the chapel, unsure whether it would be open as the various sources of information we found were a bit contradictory. We arrived around 2:00PM on a Sunday and it was open. There is not a whole lot to see, as it is quite small, and very hot inside. I suppose if you are a Goya buff... More

A pretty little chapel with one of the few places to see Goya's paintings in the original location. Carefully placed mirrors let you appreciate the detail of the paintings round the cupola. Free entry. After yu can have a walk along the river.

A rare non touristy opportunity (and free). The ceiling frescos are wonderful. Mirrors are set up so you can view them in detail without craning your neck! Easy to get to by Metro (Principe Pio) stop, then a simple and quick ten or fifteen minute walk. Bring a fan...no air conditioning in the building. Afterwards, if you're hungry, the Casa... More

My husband dragged me up here on a hot afternoon but it was so worth the trip. It is Goya's final resting place and decked out so suitable. The frescos that adorn the ceiling kept us mesmerized. It was a quiet place for contemplation. One thing, there no photo rule and the closed circuit tv they used to monitor your... More

Quite a bit separate from the more touristy areas of Madrid, this small building houses the burial site of Goya as well as some of his artwork. It is small but breathtaking, very much worth the short trip we took to it after visiting the Egyptian temple. They don't allow photography inside.

Goya's tomb, decorated with his own frescos and art work. Very beautiful, and free! Located just down the road from Principe Pia.

This small church was a nice discovery after living in madrid for years. It hides the tomb of Goya himself and is fully decorated with his paintings (frescos). It taked only a few minutes to see, but it is worth a detour.

This is one of the only original works of Goya that remain in the original location for which it was intended. The Prime Minister commissioned this with no restrictions on what he could or couldn't do, (unlike the Monarchy or Church). He painted with his soul and it is so beautiful.
