The city of Zaragoza is the place of the infancy, youth and education of Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, one of the most universal Spanish painters.

The art of Goya supposes the commencement of contemporary painting and is considered to be the precursor of the pictorial and thematic avant garde of the XX century.

Born in Fuendetodos on March 30, 1746, his family moved to Zaragoza where he trained as an apprentice in the studio of the painter José Luzán when he was still a child.

He travelled to Madrid and Italy where he broadened his training. He returned to Zaragoza, where, at different times, he painted the Coreto Vault (1772) and the Regina Martyrum dome (1780-1781) in the Basílica del Pilar, as well as the mural paintings of the Charterhouse of Aula Dei (1772-1774).

Many museums and buildings of ZARAGOZA also contain paintings and engravings made by Goya throughout his lifetime.
