  • Personally I think that if you are in Seville you should visit this Museum, which is free for the Europeans (closed on Mondays). Perhaps if you have visited the Prado you run a little short, but in reality is that the Prado is beastly... This museum is very well, both in pictures and in the building itself, and if I'm not wrong is the second pinacoteca of Spain (after the Prado). I think that it is highly recommended to visit it.

  • Who is the Seville should not fail to see this Museum, which has a fantastic collection of paintings by important artists. The architecture of the building housing the collection is a show!

  • This is one of the best art museums in Spain. While the collections are not as fast as some of the larger national museums around the country this museum truly has some spectacular pieces.
  • Beautiful Zubarans and Velazquez housed in an old monastery. The chapel section is gorgeous.
  • Good if you like religious art. One of the rooms was architecturally very interesting.
  • I'm sure the museum is fantastic, but I didn't get to see the inside because the opening hours are incorrect on Google. During summer the museum closes at 3.30pm!
  • The paintings are awesome. But too many paintings with religion themes. ..also the devil is captured under the form of dogs or clowns. It's an interesting perspective. I didn't expect to see this specific theme all over...
