Goya's tomb: Goya painted the frescos in this chapel 20 years before he died. In 1919, about 10 years after they made it a national monument, they moved his tomb there. It's a little out of the way (take the Metro to Principe Pio and walk up Calle de Florida about 3 blocks), but you'll have the place to yourself... More

This chapel is a gem. It is not very spectacular on the outside and seems to be under the radar, or at least it was very quiet when I visited (there only 2 other people visiting when I was there). But the feeling in the chapel was so calm and the frescoes so beautiful that I have very strong good... More

It was a bit of a journey on a hot day, but if you admire Goya's talent then sit awhile in this small chapel and look up. Then look down at Goya's grave. It's worth the trek.

Small Chapel off the beaten path but so worth it. Between the frescos and finding where Goya was buried the trek was worth it.

Beautiful Goya paintings decorate the chapel. Off the beaten track but worth seeking out amidst the bustle of the city.

It's a small chapel with amazing Goya's frescos that just can't leave you indifferent !! It's in 8-10 minutes on foot from Principe Pio metro station & the entrance is free. The chapel is very quiet & there is some light & positive spirit there. You'll also see the grave of Goya there... Frescos are just amazing !! You may... More

About a half hour walk from the Grand Via is a small church the ceilings of which are adorned with Goya frescos. Painted in 1788 these are one of the few Goya art works in their original position. Even if you do not really appreciate art, you'd be impressed by these. It's worth the walk off the typical tourist path.

A little gem - don't miss it and then enjoy the walk along the beautiful riverside park that has been developed. If you've not visited for a few years you won't believe the transformation.

A simple chapel in a nondescript area to the west of the Royal Palace. Fabulous Goya frescoes adorn the ceiling and Goya is buried here (apparently missing his head). Takes a little while to get here, well away from the main tourist trail; 10 minute walk from Principe Po metro. (Note the PP shopping mall is horrid, unless you like... More
