Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Church
Despite its somewhat unassuming appearance, the ceiling and dome of Royal Chapel of St. Anthony of La Florida are painted with striking frescoes by Francisco de Goya. After viewing the portrayals of miracles performed by St. Anthony, pay your respects to the great artist himself: His remains came to the chapel 91 years after his death in 1919. If you speak Spanish, informative panels tell the chapel’s history and explain Goya’s frescoes.

  • Small and cozy, ideal for private ceremonies. Pretty well located and full of history. With a twin church next to with wonderful paints from the great Goya
  • We spend the better part of the day walking here from central Madrid....the Goyas made it most worthwhile. .....stunnng!
  • Check opening hours before going. I didn't get the chance to enter it because of that.
  • Inside the Hermitage a day like today of San Antonio... It's overcrowded, it's hot, dizzy, and that happens every year. Out devotion is forgiven and we endure...

  • Very well organized. They are priests of the association of La Santa Cruz (Opus Dei), but for the remisses, I tell you that it is very nice. Good Doctrine and a lot of Holy Spirit. In fact there is a Charismatic Renewal in the Spirit group that meets on Tuesdays at 20h, during the school course and also the parish priest. Very practical seats, well heated. Of course on Tuesdays at the end of the daily muse in the afternoon, the Responsorio is prayed to San Antonio, (as might be otherwise). I recommend this parish especially to jo enea, because they have a very cool pastoral for them. Mola.
