Our host advised us to visit this little known chapel and we did not regret it. In fact we think a visit to this place should be on everyone's must do list in Madrid. This is where Goya's tomb lies and also his painting on the ceiling is pure magic. Entry is free. The chapel is not well signposted. So... More

Perhaps because i am not an "art" guy, so I really did not feel anything interesting on this church. It is located quite remote and far. It is not allowed to take picture inside. The closest metro will be Intercambiador de Principe Pio.

My close friend who is a professor of art history and an expert on Spanish painters (and who works and lives in Madrid) thinks this is a gem, the most exquisite work of Goya who is entombed inside. I am a barbarian, apparently. I liked it but did not love it and probably one visit was enough for me, although... More

This place is beautiful and very secluded. It has some of GOYA's works. Be sure that the place is open since times are rather awkward. If your time in Madrid is short, I would consider other sites

We loved seeing this tribute to Goya. His frescos were amazing and very true to life. The mirrors provide a cool view helping to see how 3 dimensional the paintings truly are....

Not a well known place in Madrid, but I highly recommend it. Beautiful Goya paintings and free entrance.

Not a must, but for Goya's fans. This little church is out of the way, but it contains some interesting frescoes by Goya. Metro stop Principe Pio, the some walking. Free, peaceful, no photos.

This is a free attraction that is out of the way. Goya did all the paintings inside. If you want to see something off the beaten path, this is it.
