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

I am actually not a big art person (or fan), but this church was worth the time and visit. A lot of history, and information contained in the church. The paintings on the ceiling by Goya are really amazing. It is a bit off the beaten path in Madrid, but that also makes it worth it (it is a block... More

It's a really small church with 6 months worth of Goya's work on the ceilings. His tomb is also there. Fabulous paintings with which to get your art 'fix'. Free entry, but no photos please.

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
