Very small church which contains the tomb of painter Goya and some frescoes he painted. Short audiovisual presentation before see the masterworks. Only indirect photography is allowed via a mirrored reflection. Situated near the North Train Station. Statue of artist across street.

It is not in top tourist attraction list but we went there because we need to use nearby train station principe pio. This small church used to be "the royal church" for the king and Goya painted beautiful fresco alone. No admission fees and church even provide big mirrors to admire easily of painter's works. There is an identical church... More

I find the experience of getting out of the crowded city center and going on foot from Principe Pío station down to San Antonio de la Florida quite relaxing. Here you can get in contact with a middle popular neighbourhood. Try going along the Paseo or along the river. In the church you'll find beautiful frescoes of most renowned XIX... More

I got to know Francisco de Goya's work better during these holidays. He was a rather versatile painter: he did paintings on a wide range of subjects, he did drawings, engravings, he designed tapestries and... he painted churches. This very small and very plain church houses, besides the fresco's by Goya, the tomb of the painter as well.

Goya's frescoes in the interior of this small church have been beautifully restored and cleaned. They are well worth a visit for those who love Goya.

The Goya fresco is stunning and it is totally amazing to see it in situ where the artist painted it - well worth a visit - even though we walked down the wrong side of the railway tracks! After you have been here pay a wee visit to Casa Mingo across thee side street.

If you have seen the Goyas in the Prado and in the Bellas Artes museum in Madrid go to thus church in Paseo Florida and see the amazing murals. You'll be glad you did and it's off the beaten track.

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
