We visited here as part of the above tour. It is underground and beautiful, with stunning frescos. The atmosphere is quite something and a lovely way to spend 1/2 an hour or so.

Definitely worth a visit. The Goya frescos are beautiful. The chapel itself is built within what was originally a cave and so is in itself a fascinating place.

This little chapel is a jewel--if you are lucky and walk upstairs where it is located. Visitors tend to go downstairs where there is nothing but a couple of plain religious images that you could find anywhere. there is a ticket agent at the entrance...More

There is a consistent feeling experienced visiting places of such importance, expectation. The leaflet handout states as follows. It is surprising, and few imagine, that behind its facade, which has more of a civil than religious appearance, two very different types of superimposed spaces can...More
