Monastery ‘Aula Dei’Add to my travel
Francisco de Goya left his print in the shape of wall paintings in this beautiful monastery, closet o Zaragoza. Nowadays seven out of the eleven Works accomplished by the painter are still preserved, all painted with spontaneous and free strokes.
The monastery ‘Aula Dei, located in the Saragossa’s suburb of Peñaflor, hosts one of the most original compositions from Goya’s youth and the prelude of his artistic maturity. The Aragonese painting painted the widest repertoire in his work, eleven paintings about Holy Mary’s Life, accomplished with spontaneous and free strokes.
Nowadays, seven out of the eleven wall paintings are preserved. They can be found in the church, they are large and all together offer a unique trait in Goya’s work.
Guided tours are available every weekend. During the visit, apart from admiring Goya’s frescos you may know the history of the monastery, as well as the cloister, garden and the chapels.
