Goya's reputation as one of the best painters of all times is well deserved. If you visited the Prado, you'll have a whole idea of his production along his life. However, nathing is comparable with the richness of visiting a place which has been cleaned up and is now as it was when Goya painted the interior of the chapel.... More

The chapel ceiling has outstandingly beautiful frescos painted by Goya. Goya himself has been laid to rest there. When you go there you may be confused are there are two identical buildings almost side by side. Looking at the buildings, you want the one on the right. The other one was built later as a place of worship so that... More

After visiting the Prado and seeing the paintings of Goya including the black paintings (in a separate rooms in the Prado) we went to visit the church and the fresco he made there before he died. We loved it. Fans of Goya should not miss this place. Yona S

A small church on the edge of Madrid with some amazing Goya frescos on the ceiling. Goya's tomb is here also and there is a statue of him opposite. The frescos are well worth a look if in the area, though frankly they are not among Goya's more interesting works (these are in the Prado and display a much greater... More

A little known fact: beautiful frescoes by Goya in this small church not too far from Plaza España - a real joy and treasure!

We had been looking forward to seeing the Goya frescos all week. Sadly, we never got to see them as, after a half hour walk from the city centre we arrived to be told it has just closed. The time was 7.20. Tourist information (and webs ite) say 8pm. Massively disappointed.

We walked a long time and thought it was closed, but were blessed that we had some minutes to be able to see one of the Parroquias. We were able to admire all the Goya frescos and visit his tomb. We were greeted by Rosa, one of the staff there and she was extremely nice. She gave us some information... More

If you're an art historian, then this chapel is for you! Goya's work takes over the ceiling of this little church and the work is as emotional and powerful as his other, more serious works. Lots of playful details! Plenty of colour! And the gardens outside are nice for a rest after, with bonus lovebird nesting action.

The small and unassuming building built in the 18th century is home to some amazing paintings which have to be see to be believed. The chapel was declared a national monument in 1905, you can see first hand the fresco decoration carried out by Francisco de Goya in the final year of its construction ,since 1919 the remains of Goya...
