Create an itinerary including Royal Chapel of St. Anthony of La Florida
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.

  • this was a little off the beaten path but it was well worth the bus ride. it's actually the final resting place for Goya which was pretty cool to see in person. if you're in the area i would suggest you stop by as the entry is free and there was nobody there when i visited. they do not allow photography so it's just a heads up
  • The chapel is free to enter and the painting on the ceilings is nice. Unfortunately they do not allow photos inside. Small chapel.
  • 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
  • Fantastic place to stop and admire the art and beauty of Goya
  • Fantastic, especially as completion of Goya works which you can see in Madrid. 25 mins walking distance from Plaza Mayor.
