Worth it for the building itself, the small selection of more modern portraits and landscapes and as a cool escape from the Seville heat. But for the rest of it, there are only so many variations of the crucifixion and John The Baptist's severed head that I can take.

A lovely museum with just enough art and history that you could take in an hour. A quiet place in the middle of this great city which charged my batteries in more ways than just being away from the crowds. Nice way of learning about Spanish history and if you like old artwork this is a place to visit with... More

If you are even remotely interested in art, you have no excuse giving this museum a miss. Yes, it is heavily tilted towards religious art, but there is SO much more. Combined with the galleries on the upper levels, the museum allows you a sweeping and fascinating glimpse into the local art scene from the 1400s to the 20th. All... More

The staff was great the pieces very well preserved and the building itself is worth a visit. Doesn't take too long to do the whole tour.

Beautiful former convent - some great paintings and sculptures by renowned Spanish artists. If you like art- a must.. IF EU citizen- free if you show passport. Beware- in summer- only open mornings until 3.30pm!

The building itself is worth the visit, especially as it's free if you bring your passport. There are interior gardens with benches where you can rest your feet after long day sightseeing. There are many beautiful paintings and sculptures across the two floors. We only visited as we were near area and it was our last day in Seville (having... More

Remember to take your EU passport and it's free admission. Closed on Mondays though. If you forget it's only 1.50€. Lovely building filled the best paintings depicting spanish religion in the main, with some later 19C paintings. There is a small shop and plenty of places to sit a while.

The building is extraordinarily beautiful - a labyrinth of palatial rooms of various scales with architectural detail as beautiful as the artworks themselves and exquisite tiled, box-hedged garden courtyards. The artworks are largely religious in nature. Outstanding for me were the works of the Sevillian artist, Zurbarán (17th century) - there's a spareness and economy that makes them almost modern...

The art on show is of very high quality and there's a good deal of it (15 rooms or so) but if you don't like religious art then you're likely to be disappointed by all but the last 2 or 3 rooms. Entry is free for European Citizens (you'll need to bring your passport).
