Goya’s tomb lies in this little hermitage on the banks of the Río Manzanares north of the Palacio Real. But the real draw is the wonderful frescoed ceiling by him, depicting the miracles of St. Anthony with a trompe l’oeil balustrade around the cupola. Goya used the labor-intensive technique of applying fresh plaster to the surface, incising his design based on a cartoon drawing, and then applying pigment with a sponge instead of a brush. Many early viewers were shocked that he depicted prostitutes and beggars surrounding the saint, but his patron, Carlos IV, approved. Recently restored to its original glory, it is often called Goya’s Sistine Chapel.
