The Basics

Visitors from around the world flock to this popular Madrid church, built in 1792, in order to peek at the Goya paintings within and pay their respects at his final resting place. It’s certainly a popular stopping point for those who love art, architecture, or religious imagery, as alongside glimpses of Goya’s early artistic style, you can also see a José Ginés sculpture of San Antonio for whom the Hermitage is named. Next door is another chapel built in 1928.
