Francisco de Goya y Lucientes is one of the most universal Spanish painters. This Aragonese artist, spent part of his childhood and youth in Zaragoza. We show you the places where you can admire his work in the city.

In Fuendetodos you can visit the Museum of Engraving and his birthplace house. In Zaragoza, he lived in the Plaza de San Miguel for several years; a plaque on the façade of the building recalls this.
