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.

Great idea to include floor standing mirrors so you do not have to get a stiff neck looking at this masterpiece of Goya's!

I never miss visiting this tiny gem when I am in Madrid. It is probably my favourite piece of art in the world. I cannot explain it's power over me rationally but it moves me every time. It also allows me to pay my respects to the maestro Goya, who is buried here.

We'll worth the long walk or cab ride. It's a short stay - not a tremendous amount to see, but after hitting all the big museums and tourist draws, it provided great perspective on Goya and his impact on local community. The locals are so proud to have the museum and tomb in their community. Very humble perspective, but great... More

This is a real little treasure. The Goya frescos were amazing. Well worth a visit and it is free. After the visit, if you are energetic, you can walk up the back and over the rail line and visit the egyptian monument.

We took a cab to get here since it was so far from where we were staying. It's an amazing room with a rotunda all painted by Goya with his tomb before the alter. I would go again, but you should know that it's probably a 10 minute visit tops and there are no photos allowed.

I finally visited this small church to pay homage to Goya. There is no fee to get in, and the free leaflet at the entrance in English is good enough to understand what you are looking at. For me, the frescoes were important but the highlight is to see Goya's tomb (his body was transferred from France after his death).... More

A very small church with beautiful frescoes painted by Goya. Mirrors are on stands angles at the ceiling for better viewing. There is a little gift shop/checking in where you can buy a book about it in either Spanish or English for only $1 euro. Best deal in all of the city.

A lovely small church where the frescos say it all. This church is just big enough to allow a close look at the beauty of Goya's frescos; the addition of mirrors to better look at the frescos without having to strain the neck, is a wonderful thing. The Ermita is not too far from the Royal Palace and on the... More
