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.

The hermitage itself is a charming little structure and, on its own, would be worth popping into, if you happened to be in the area. But then you look up. Goya himself painted the frescoes, and they are amazing. This is made doubly impressive when you learn that Goya was deaf by the time he painted these frescoes and, due... More

we were taken here when on our Madsegs tour. Anthony suggested it was worth a visit. We were blown-away with the frescos inside. Goya at his best! The Angels and cherubs were beautiful. The colours and form were mesmerising. As it is so old, they ask you don't take photographs but the beauty will remain with me forever. Well worth... More

Defintely worth visiting given its hostorical importance, but by Madrid standards it is not the most impressive church/chapel by any means and it is a little out of the way. If you have several days to explore I recommend putting it on your list. If you have only a day or two or three, then probably not justified using a... More

This small chapel is Goyas last resting place and their is no better example of his work anywhere. Although slightly out of the way it is always worth a visit to see the frescos and the tomb. Then chicken and sidre at Casa Mingo next door.

The entire small chapel interior is a painting by Goya, depicting the 18th century people of Madrid looking from the balconies to see St. Anthony's miracle, while the female angels open the curtains for all to watch. You really fell part of the event. Practical advice: This is one of the few places in Madrid were it is not best... More

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.
