Museo de Bellas Artes de Valencia, Valencia

(4/5 based on 360+ 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. Take time to appreciate the striking Baroque building, which was built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Pick up some literature on your favorite artist at the bookshop. Grab a snack at the on-site cafe, or head next door to the royal gardens and enjoy a picnic.

  • Excellent collection of the works of Joaquin Sorolla as well as an interesting array of religious (catholic) paintings 
  • After years of admiring the building we decided to plan a visit and we do not disappoint. Despite not being very large, the quality of the works which houses marvels visitors since the beginning of the visit. For more facilities, the schedule is quite broad and free admission. There is no excuse to not spend a cultural afternoon. Too bad that there is no more like this and will not promote all what is owed

  •  Location is bad.  Renovated convent Museum and exhibition facilities. Was able to enjoy the exhibition spaces and a collection of the most representative painters of Spain to El Greco, Velazquez.

  • 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.
