(4.1/5 based on 340 reviews on the web)
Admire paintings, drawings, sculptures, and historic artifacts at Museo de Bellas Artes de Valencia. The museum houses some 2,000 works, most dating from the 14th to 17th centuries and mainly religious in theme. Marvel at masterpieces such as El Greco’s "St. John the Baptist," Goya’s "Playing Children," and a self-portrait by Diego Velázquez. The gallery is not only filled with works of beauty, but is set in an architecturally stunning building: St. Pius V Palace.

  • This is really a wonderful collection of art. The collection ranges from the ancient to the modern. We were pleased to be introduced to some new (to us) Spanish artists.

  • Beautiful and interesting museum. Make sure to visit it. It is definately worthwile.
  • Friendly staff, not a lot to see but its very interesting. Worth the visit. P.S. They keep it very cold inside to protect the art so bring a light jacket.
  • Wonderful museum with masterpieces of great spanish painters Sorolla, Goya, El Greco. Also other international works from dutch, italian artists starting 15th century.
  • Great! Well maintained, organized and cool expositions
  • The great art is obvious. But why isn't everybody talking about the restaurant in the museum ! I had a very good steak done to perfection and my wife had a very good tuna with sides. And, we paired it with a nice bottle of sparkling wine. And, all at very reasonable prices. The staff were excellent, spoke English. I am going back simply for another meal ! And while there check out the 1776 exhibit.
