“Lovely church with Goya frescos”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Loved the mirrors you tilt to see the ceiling rather than crane your neck

“Goya”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Do not miss this church with a Goya memorial and frescos, it's a little bit out of the center but pick up a taxi to go quickly from the Opera place ! So emotional moment ... if you like paintings

“Small building, big ideas”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

Bypass the free pamphlet and buy the $1 guide book when you enter. It is the best art history guide for a single room that I have ever encountered. They have mirrors to save your neck, but really, sit and strain your neck but take periodic breaks and read about the major leaps Goya took with this work.

Even though it seems out of the way on a map, it is well worth it. Goya's works at the Prado are grand, but the Ermita seems more personal and intimate even though it covers a massive area.

“Unbelievable”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

I´ve never seen a painting that gave me feeling of the ones inside this Hermitage. Furthermore, it is pretty close to a less known attraction (the cable car to la casa de campo).
