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...

Yes, a multi-lingual brochure (or earphone guide) would enhance a non-Spanish fluent visit, but this is a beautiful collection of art masterworks of Spain's (and Europe's) top early masters... displayed in the magnificent setting of a former 1600s convent... at a modest cost (1.5 Euros for seniors, free Tuesdays). Most of the paintings are from the 1500's, so naturally religious... More

This lovely museum is easy to find, with beautiful holdings on exhibit and a most interesting special exhibit when we visited. The art is exhibited in a way that offers historical context, and it is possible to examine the work very closely! The museum is a treasure.

I wish I could give 5 stars. ZERO information in English from the moment you arrive at the reception. Really enjoyed the paintings. If you like fine art, don't miss this place.

I planned more visits to museums but this made me tired. Nice free entry for EU citizens (not so nice for other nations though) on a perfect square in a perfect building. Loads of art, I don't why but I expected later periods. Contemporary arts in Sevilla doesn't cover nearly enough. So, if you like earlier art, this is a... More

I loved the feel of this fine arts museum as they blended an historic building and filled it with art. Outside was modern art and a piazza for play and social interaction. I specifically wanted to visit Picasso's Guerneca. Along with Picasso, I made it through some modern exhibits that wowed me - the exhibit on the 3rd floor terrace... More
