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

Any one visiting Madrid should find time for this little Hermitage home to Goyas tomb. The frescos he painted decorating this little hermitage are the best iv seen and should not be missed at any cost. The arrangement of mirrors to view the frescos is brilliant and all for free. The best value in Madrid.

After seeing the Goya's in the Prado, this is absolutely spectacular. in our opinion, the frescos are some of his best work. Sit down, relax, and look upward at some of the best art around. Take your time to enjoy the beauty. This is a wonderful location and venue for this work. Easy to get to but off the normal... More

I read the reviews on the hermitage and decided I had to find this place and make the visit. Well it is average, very average so I can't understand all the fuss. I know it is EL Grecos resting place and for that reason it is very special, but as far as anything else, I can't say I was impressed.... More

This, I believe, is a hidden gem in Madrid. Goyas grave. A small chapel decorated by Goya himself. Simply fantastic and beatyfull. If you go there at lunch-time there is a restaurant next door wich is worth visiting. Serving great roasted chickens and cider.

The Goya fresco paintings are absolutely stunning. The ermita is beautiful in itself, but here you have the opportunity to see a Goya where it was painted. Do not miss it!

This is a very small chapel with some restored frescos on the ceiling, a large marble alter, a painting by Goya, and his tomb. Everything is in Spanish (which I speak) so may not be as interesting to non spanish speakers.
