Royal Chapel of St. Anthony of La Florida, Madrid

4.5
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.

  • 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.
  • Not to be confused with the other church side, known as "the Pantheon of Goya", which contains the frescoes for which he is justly famous. This presents no particular interest, having been built in place of the other for the worship of the community.

  • Only by the frescos by the painter Goya is worth your visit.

  • With the bus we drove from the bus station Principe PIO to the Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida, bus 75 two stations. The monument is of twin chapels. The Hermitage was built in 1792 on behalf of Carlos' IV. by the Italian architect Filippo Fontana. The sculpture of San Antonio comes from José Ginés. Francisco de Goya designed the decoration and created the frescos representing scenes from the life of St. The Hermitage has a floor plan in the shape of a Greek cross and a central dome of the Lantern is remarkable. The only consisting of a part of the facade is decorated with Doric pilasters. in 1905, the building was placed under monument protection. As a protective measure, the services were set in 1926 and commissioned the architect Juan de Moya with the construction of a copy of the building. in 1919, the remains of Francisco de Goya were transferred here. 1928 King Alfonso XIII. gave the Hermitage at the Academy of fine arts of San Fernando, who takes care of their conservation.
