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.

Goya's Tomb is here and he has made some fantastic paintings worth seing. The visit is free and it is worth taking the time. If you go there around lunch time go to the neighbour Casa Mingo for roast chicken and fresh Salads.

If you are eating at Casa Mingo (which I suggest) definitely take a look inside Goya's tomb. It's free and worth a look.

Built in the 18th century, this small hermitage is home to Goya's remains and some impressive frescos by him. There is no entrance fee and can be visited in 10 mins. Recommended.

The Ermita de San Antonio is famous for the frescos that Goya painted at the dome and ceiling and they are worth seeing because Goya was a genius in painting. Another thing to see is the Tomb of Goya, which is located at the foot of the presbytery. He died in Bordeaux in 1828 but his remains were brought back... More

Closed on Mondays. And of course I found out this the hard way! So I can't review this at all but I'm sure it would have been beautiful!! I did have a great bite to eat next door at the Casa Mingo so the effort to get there wasn't wasted
