This is a small and easily tackled museum with a lovely collection of Spanish art, mostly, but not exclusively, of the religious variety. The building itself is quite beautiful, especially the main exhibit hall, where the beautiful tile work and ceilings may manage to distract you from the amazing monumental pieces on the wall.

We had the gallery to ourselves and could wander round in peace. A few little gems, mostly Spanish artists, well worth a visit. Free to Europeans

This place is well worth a visit, even if you have to pay to get in, the best art in Seville, don't rush round, some of the large works need to be explored in detail.

It doesn't look like Prado in Madrid, but it's still an awesome museum with a few Velazquez and Picasso. The building was once a palace and patios inside are still amazing. Recommend to go there on Sunday, since there is a flea market outside selling paintings and pieces of craftsmen, fun to have a look and spend a little to... More

Always keep a photocopy of your EU passport with you as it will get you free admittance to this and several other Government museums (and if you're young or old enough it will prove your age which will give you a concession in some others places). The building (a former convent) is a delight with at least three lovely courtyards.... More

The title might be misleading... it was free. It has a few very interesting salas (presentation rooms) and some that are just not that great. Obviously it focuses on Sevillan artists like Murillo and Zurburan and they have some good works from them. But because Seville was under the threat of the inquisition, the range of art is limited to... More

With many styles from religious to modern this museum is full of beauty. Free for EU citizens and, in the Plaza del Museo just outside, there is a market (El Mercado de Arte) for local artists to show off and sell their wares on Sundays.
