Beautiful hidden church

If using trip advisor for directions it is very difficult to find. Nevertheless a beautiful church. Well worth the visit - €2 donation per person. Incredible art work!

We attended a great mass in this amazing church. Every square inch of the walls are painted with scenes. It is a very small Parish with no singing but we enjoyed the mass very much. The art is amazing. Highly recommend a stop here.

A fantastic and free little church that houses some of Goyas masterpieces. Hours could easily be lost sitting examining the paintings!

As has been said, there's no Goya frescoes here (there's one at the Basilica de San Francisco but the main ones are at the Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida). Nevertheless this is a little gem tucked away on a side street near the Gran Via. Plain on the outside but amazingly decorated inside. Well worth a visit.

Contrary to other reviewers, this church has nothing of Goya. Its frescos were by Luca Giordano and Francisco Ricci, and was designed by Pedro Sánchez in the 17th century.

Free to enter (unless you chose to make a donation) , this Church as decorated for the public by Goya for no charge. If you are visiting the Palace or the Cathedral you really must take a small detour to see this church. Unassuming on the exterior, you are in for a pleasant surprise inside.

The church de San Antonio de Los Alemanes is the cathedral in front of the Palacio Real or Royal Palace. Contrary to the Real Basilica de San Fransisco, entry is free. Additionally this church is much larger and contains an abundance of golden and silver statues, which are really mindblowing! Make sure you climb the platform to admire the statue... More

One of the least known sites in Madrid, even for locals. Yet a true jewel very much worth a visit. It is a small church in the center of Madrid, very close to the Gran Vía. With a relatively unimpressive exterior, the contrast with the oval interior is shocking. An extraordinary and spectacular example of the Spanish "barroco" style of... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
