The building itself is worth a visit. The art by some of Spain,s masters are impressive, but I prefer a little more landscape and modern art.

The museum does a fantastic job of teaching about Seville art history. In addition it is located in a cathedral. The setting is fantastic.

I'm not a big fan of church art so I was disappointed in this museum. It's not a very large museum, so you can easily see everything in an hour to 90 minutes. I found secular art in the main building, on the upper floor. That made my visit worth the time.

Has many Michelin stars but as I am not very fond of the kind of art that the museum exhibits did not expect to like so much. The building is beautiful and well maintained, loved the chapel, the collection is very well exposed and i was blown away by Zurbaran Christ that was recently restored.

I went on a Sunday and it was free of charge. The museum itself is beautiful with four gardens surrounding the galleries. It's a great museum to get a feel for the history of Seville.

A warm summer day in Seville and we were headed to the museum of Fine Arts. A perfect place for great art and architecture. Peaceful place to rest , regroup and be inspired. Isn't that one hopes for in a place like this. Superb collection of Spanish art set beautifully. It is worth the time spent here.
