  • The Museo de Bellas Artes San Pio V is the largest space dedicated to the pictorial arts of the city of Valencia. It is located in the calle San Pío V in Valencia City. It is one of the most important pictorial museums of the country. Have special relevance Gothic tables of the century XIV and XV which keeps inside

  • We decided to come and have a look for two reasons, basically:-why-because it is inside a particular building. Important notice: do not go crazy for the art of "religious" type. One of the most important notes picture galleries of Spain, organized, and you visit easily but ... Madonnas, Christs and altarpieces like there's no tomorrow ... In the map that you are given at the entrance are reported the important paintings for each room, pity that the rooms do not have numbers and you should recognize from the colors ... or at least I have not seen numbers anywhere ... Beautiful our Lady of Pinturicchio. Some paintings by Goya, El Greco, Velazquez, but nothing (apart from Pinturicchio) that got me really excited. But it is a speech of personal sensitivity. It is still a nice Museum and free. Clear that if you have limited time and you're not particularly fond of this kind of art can do more. There was a nice temporary exhibition on the figure of the Virgin Mary. If the review was HELPFUL, click on THANKS Ipack!

  • This was the second time I've been to this museum, the last a few years ago. Unfortunately this time the museum is being refurbished, so only the ground floor galleries are open. However because if the restricted access it's free to enter. The ground floor is mostly Spanish religious art with a beautiful gold leaf decoration. There is however one room of the Valenciennes artist Sorolla, which enjoyed more. It was a wet Feb day when I was there and the restaurant was full as no one was sitting in the courtyard. They have a good value set menu of the day and I'd been looking forward to eating there. I had enjoyed eating in the courtyard last time, but it is always popular. They also do more expensive gourmet evening meals but you need to book these. There is a nice park next door to the museum and this has two cafes in the grounds and the natural sciences museum.
  • Nice museum, such a pity that the top floor was closed due to renovations. I really like the fact that there is no fee at all and you can just come and go as you like. The cafe was pretty good and a nice addition to the museum.
  • Absolutely stunning. Highly recommended, even more so when you're a student: free entrance if you have a student card.
  • Beautiful exhibits of devotional art. Really striking. Particularly beautiful, unique Virgin Mary paintings
  • Fantastic place/ architecture, museum and waterviews. Nice terras outside.
