situated in a 16th century palace, with columns and patios, displays many excellent paintings, Spanish and Andalusians. A very coherent collection, with quality works, that worth to spend an afternoon.

Boy, did they take their angry pills today. The customer experience, the one that pays their salary seems to be largely forgotten. I didn't ask for anything, I just don't want to be treated poorly when I pay for the experience.

Lovely modern museum with a delightful exhibition of Regoyos. English translation on signs much appreciated. Well worth the entrance fee.

This is a fantastic place to visit.. However my joy was seriously ruined by the overly keen 'guards' I was enjoying the interactive show...I'd slipped off my shoes to enjoy the cold marble floor sensation on my feet...nope..not allowed...really?

This gallery surpassed expectations! An excellent well displayed exhibition of mainly Spanish art, spanning different eras. Some stunning paintings - especially some of the seascapes. Much preferred to the Picasso museum in all honesty.

In spacious rooms is a fine collection of Spanish paintings to be seen. The museum is not very big and certainly worth visiting.

Certainly not a world class museum, but a nice out of the way treat located off a narrow side street. There were no special exhibits showing while I was there, so most of the art is by Spanish artists depicting typical Spanish scenes. My favorite was titled "Courtship Spanish Style" and was whimsical in its depiction. Admission: 6 euros.

The building is absolutely gorgeous and immense attention has been paid to the smallest detail, from the floors and ceilings, the lighting, the toilets, the cafeteria,etc. The pictures have all been reframed in clusters of the same design and are displayed with regard to their size and shape. I dread to think what the budget must have been. I quite... More

I personally found this museum to be better than the Picasso museum. Most of the works are of traditional spanish scenes.

This looked good from the outside and I'm sure is just as interesting inside but it was extremely expensive to go in so we gave it a miss.
