I was there very early and had the place each room to myself. I was very lucky. CCTV is everywhere and they explain no drinking water in the art rooms. Nobody is eyeballing you like in London if you get too close to a painting. I took pictures of some very fine work .. Flash off. I loved it because... More

Considered by some as the second most important fine arts museum in Spain after the Prado in Madrid. The museum building is a former mercy convent renewed in the 17th century and the fifteen exhibition rooms show a comprehensive picture of Sevillian art from the Gothic period to the early trends of the 20th century. Plenty of original paintings on... More

Loved the free access for EU citizens. Huge collection of religious paintings and a wonderful room with Murillos. Some late 19th/early 20th century paintings with a real Spanish flavour.

I enjoyed my visit to this museum. It's not overwhelmingly large and I was able to move through it easily and in a couple hours. I'm not an art expert but enjoy the 1500-1700 era the most and this did not disappoint.

I must confess I am not an art connoisseur but I really enjoyed this place. As other have said the painting are predominantly religious but there are also some amazing portrait. The building and its court yards are also very beautiful. Entrance is free for most nationals of European countries, definitely worth a visit.

Free entry to European residents. The is far too much space given over to religious paintings and icons and too little devoted to the impressionists. The city of Seville is full of religious iconography so it is a shame that a larger space could not be found to display some other art.

It's free for us but even though for the others, the admission fee is cheap for an art museum. Apart from artworks, the beautiful gardens are quite enchanting and admirable. As most paintings are themed on Christianity, I would pay more attention to the works created by the hands of the artists such as the use of colour and also... More

This is a very nice art collection, if you like art you will not regret visiting this museum. There are many religious paintings especially those by Murillo. Many of them are very good. There is a masterpiece portrait by El Greco on the first floor, non-spectacular portrait by Velasquez, several good paintings by Velasquez's teacher Francisco Pacheco. On the second... More

Enjoyed the museum but too many of the paintings had a religious theme for me. Not enough variety. I appreciate the era but still too much

Located in a quiet little square, the museum (free entrance for European citizens) offers an extensive overview of religious paintings (15th to 17th century). As you proceed your walk towards the exit, you will encounter more recent paintings representing views of life in Sevilla during the 19th century and some portraits of Spanish ladies. Well worth to visit if you... More
