Enjoyed the building more than the exhibits - too dark and religious for me. Beautiful ceilings and courtyards. Free for EU passport holders.

This is a lovely place but my tip is to start from the top floor because, unless you are an art historian, there are only so many religious scenes that you can take in. The modern stuff is at the top.

Beautiful open patio (Courtyard) and halls, and grand stairways, lead to and through grand and elegant rooms hung with very fine Spanish paintings from Renaissance onwards - with prominence to Murillo's superb work, of course.

The collection is housed in a magnificent building. Manicured courtyards, beautiful painted ceilings, ornate carvings, very tastefully presented. The staff were helpful and pleasant. Very reasonable fee to enter the facility. The art is a collection of rather large religious paintings followed by some small religious paintings dotted with a collection of religious carvings. Not a great deal of variety... More

This gallery of fine art is housed in an old Ducal Palace. The art displayed is heavy on the religious side which, if you like that sort of thing, will give you plenty to look at. Some of the more modern pieces were more to my liking escpecially the scenes of Seville from the mid 18th century showing what the... More

Superb collection housed in a former convent. Well worth a visit to see the building moreover the paintings are exquisite with several masterpieces. My favourite - 'La muerte del maestro' Death of the Master, with bullfighters around the bed of their gored master. A brilliant gallery.

Despite being a little difficult to find and outside the main tourist area, get a map or ask locals and you should find the large red bricked building. It can seem shut up, but it is gated on 3 sides and entry only at front. Free for EU citizens, bring your passport and a euro to use in lockers for... More

The building itself is a work of art. The art itself is an impression collection (Murillo, Velazquez, etc.). But Christian art dominates. If that's not your thing, you find yourself skimming many of the galleries -- which is what I tend to do. But I've been there four times and have loved it every time.

The paintings are exhibited beautifully and the collection is quite impressive, including some Pizzaros, one El Grecos, and many Murillos. Not a lot of English but you can read up on the collection online. It is also absurdly cheap.

This museum hits it right in almost every way. It costs as close to nothing without being nothing (1.50 Euro as of July 2014), it's the perfect size to keep you busy without tiring you out too much, it has a variety of religious art that covers multiple centuries and styles without being redundant stylistically, and moves into art from...
