Parroquia San Antonio De La Florida, Madrid

4.7
Despite its somewhat unassuming appearance, the ceiling and dome of Parroquia San Antonio De 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.

  • Church with a dome very nice recommend a visit worth the visit to meet a simple Church

  • Very few Spaniards know the story of why they are two temples equal (the difference will see it when you visit them), and above all, few people know that here lie the remains of one of our great geniuses of Spanish painting; Don Francisco de Goya.

  • It was closed when we got there so I didn't see the painting you can see on people's photos. From the outside it's nothing out of the ordinary. No need to go there if you can't get inside.  more »

  • Fantastic place to stop and admire the art and beauty of Goya
  • The Rome of Goya ... the frescoes the history. Visit pen a few tens of minutes, in addition to the trip. In the days of the feast of St. Anthony neighborhood super crowded.

  • San Antonio de la Florida is famous for its frescoes by Goya, it is a very "cuckoo" corner next to casa Mingo, walk along the River, etc... Also worth seeing before San Antonio de los Alemanes (in metro Court), to understand where this work is inspired...

  • Declared a national monument in 1905, this chapel contains frescos by Goya, painted in the 18th century. Built by Francisco de Fontana on the orders of Carlos IV, it has Greek cross, very short arms, and a semicircular apse with dome illuminated by flashlight. In 1928 became an identical temple for worship, leaving the original as a museum. The entrance is free. It is worth seeing it!

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
