We spent about 45 minutes here, the building was more interesting than the art. After seeing the Prado, these works were just not that interesting. There is a vast collection of large religious paintings, including Zuriban but just not compelling for me.

All those religious paintings with saints gazing upward... should remind you to look up, too. Because many of the ceilings are very well done. All the art is, too, On the negative side, almost everything is in Spanish only. And most pieces have only the title, the artist's name, and its provenance on a small plaque next to the piece....

A much smaller collection than that of the Prado, and predominantly religious in theme. The real star here is the building itself. Moorish in theme around several courtyards, the decoration of some rooms left me walking around looking at ceilings. And its free entry for EU citizens.

I'm not a fan of Spanish art but if I was then this would be the place to be. And I got in free which means I can't really complain. There is one big room that I was very impressed by.

Nice collection in this museum that shows beautiful fine arts but demonstrates also wealth of Seville in the past, when it was the main commercial link with the new world. The building itself is large enough to spend 2 hours visiting and admiring all sorts of art, mainly paintings.

Free for EU citizens. Lovely building with pleasant open courtyards and good interiors (including a stunning ceiling) worth a look around in itself. Art is mainly religous (lots of Murillo) but with some varity in the later rooms.

Whenever I visit Seville I have to see the Musem of Fine Arts because there is so much art in this museum. It is considered one of the 7 best fine art museums in Spain. I especially like to go to the great hall, which was a church in the past, and where they have the big paintings by Zurbaran... More

The video depicting how the Murillo masterpieces were saved from Napoleon's armies should be in different languages. More extensive education materials (about the artists and their respective eras) would be good. Lots of beauty here.

Free to get in with a European passport or 1.50 euro entrance fee. Does not open on a Monday. Its on the site of a forma convent and is based over two floors, its divided into smaller rooms. Most of the paintings and sculpture have a religious theme to them. We had a very limited leaflet to take with us... More
