Goya

Zaragoza is a land of geniuses and among them Francisco de Goya stands out in a special way, one of the greatest artists in the history of painting and a particularly influential figure in the art of the 18th and 19th centuries.

Born in Fuendetodos, while still very young, he moved with his family to Zaragoza, where he lived his childhood and received his artistic training as a youth.

The presence of the young Goya in Zaragoza left his erudite mark from the beginning and forever, so today it is possible to follow in the footsteps of the painter in the city through a journey in which we can still admire and feel the charisma of one of our most international geniuses. Frescoes, portraits, engravings and some of the places in Zaragoza that he frequented will allow us to get closer to the personality and the work of the most universal Aragonese artist.
