Hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida

Renowned across Spain for its magnificent frescos, the Hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida, or the Royal Chapel of St Anthony of Florida, is one of Madrid´s most popular churches. Built in 1792 by Italian architect Filippo Fontana under commission by Carlos IV, the neoclassical style chapel is located in the city’s Moncloa-Aravaca district and draws visitors from around the world to marvel at its splendid interiors. Now designated a National monument, the chapel boasts number of notable features including a sculpture of San Antonio by José Ginés, but it’s the elaborate paintings that steal the limelight.

The breathtaking frescoes are the work of iconic romantic painter Francisco de Goya and narrate the life of the Saint through a series of painted scenes covering the ceiling and dome.
