Its not the Louvre or the Prado but in the absence of any big-hitter permanent collection in Seville, it is a nice top-up for the art fan. Be warned that the focus is squarely on Seville artists and religious paintings dominate. These include famous names like Murillo and Zurburan but may be overpowering if you don't have an interest in... More

Most of the art is on the heavy side but the building is beautiful - and free for Europeans. There was a good exhibition of paintings of Seville whilst we were there, which was worth seeing. Lovely tiled courtyards to sit and rest before heading off for the next lot of tapas...

High on the list of places to visit for me. I loved the collection and have very strong memories of it and some of the fascinating things to see there.

An amazing collection of Murillos and Zurbarans, but that is not all. It is a wonderful museum with other great paintings and few crowds.

If you like religious art then you'll be in heaven here. Not my cup of tea, but once you go beyond the many galleries devoted to religious devotion through the centuries there are a few galleries with more contemporary paintings. Some of these are very fine. In my opinion only worth a shortish visit.

This museum was worth visiting for the inside of the building alone. As previous people have commented, the art is mostly religious subjects and even though they aren't our favourite we enjoyed very much walking round. Free for EU citizens.

Worth a visit for the building alone. The three courtyards are beautifully preserved with tiling and well maintained gardens. The art is highly religious in nature and not all that impressive compared to Italian art of the same era. You would have to be a real aficionado of this type of art to enjoy it. Entry is free for EU... More

We stopped at the Museo de Bellas Artes for a few hours and the sheer size of the building that houses these pieces is amazing, much less the actual pieces found in the building. Photos are permitted and admission is cheap for 1,50 Euros/person. You start on the ground level (level 0 ) and navigate through the rooms around the... More

Best for aficionados of religious art because there is not much else. The Zubarans make a visit worthwhile, and the building itself is spacious and allows for quiet contemplation of the artworks. It is a bit out of the way, and the bookstore is quite outstanding.
