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.

  • Check opening hours before going. I didn't get the chance to enter it because of that.
  • We spend the better part of the day walking here from central Madrid....the Goyas made it most worthwhile. .....stunnng!
  • Inside the Hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida we can find one of the best known works of Goya in Madrid, the frescoes he painted in his Dome, they are one of the miracles of San Antonio de Padua. The Hermitage is also the Pantheon of Goya. Admission is free, and they can't take pictures inside.

  • Little gem unknown to tourists. Its frescoes by Goya, which is exceptional. It is worth the trip from Príncipe Pío station and drink in the nearby cider. If these in Madrid the day of San Antonio don't get close to the pilgrimage.

  • People who like Goya, should come to this place. The ceiling is impressive. Taking pictures is prohibited.

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.
