Royal Chapel of St. Anthony of La Florida, Madrid

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.
  • En el interior de la Ermita un día como hoy de San Antonio... Que está abarrotado hace un calor de mareo y pasa eso cada año. Por devoción se perdona y aguantamos...
  • Muy bien organizada. Son sacerdotes de la asociación de La Santa Cruz (Opus Dei), pero para los remisos , os digo que só muy majos. Buena Doctrina y mucho Espíritu Santo. De hecho hay un grupo de Renovación Carismática en el Espíritu que se reúne los martes a las 20h.durante el curso lectivo y también acude el párroco. Unos asientos muy prácticos, bien climatizada. Por supuesto los martes al final de la musa diaria por la tarde, se reza el Responsorio a San Antonio, (como lo podría, ser de otra manera). Recomiendo esta parroquia sobre todo a jo enea, porque tienen una pastoral muy chula para ellos. Mola.
