Although the museum is famous for its Velazquez' paintings, these were on loan to another museum. Nonetheless, the balance of the collection was in situ and it is excellent as is the accompanying audio tour.

Audio tour is well worth the 5 euro entrance fee as it tells the history of the building and inhabitants and the interior is stunning - enjoyed this as much as the cathedral in Seville!

Like a soul-refreshing oasis in the city - water, birdsong, flowers ... The attached church was a bit too ornate and gilded for my Protestant tastes, and unfortunately the Velazquez and Murillo paintings supposedly on show in the gallery were in fact out on loan. But the history of the place as a refuge for sick and elderly priests during... More

Don't miss this lovely building with the stunning church and its also great to just get away from the crowds here. You'll get a head set as part of the visit and it really is worthwhile taking the time to learn a bit about the history of the building and its art. Lovely courtyard with Spanish tiles.

In the Santa Cruz Area there was a retirement home for old priests who appeared to live pretty well. It had a pretty central courtyard and some rooms to visit. Not sure there was value in the cost to enter but worth a visit if you are inter4sted.

This is not a big attraction but it is one of the best in Seville. The room with about a dozen beautifully lit paintings is unmissable. There's a great canvas of seville around 1640 to accompany several saints and martyrs by top artists. Pity the Valasquez is on loan. The chapel is beautiful and peaceful. Sit there and contemplate the... More

Stepping in off the busy street, I had no idea such a peaceful atmosphere could exist so close to the outside world. The courtyard is wonderful; silent and cool on a warm day, the upper level even more remote and peaceful. The building's original function as a rest home for the clergy must have been a complete success. The small... More

Tucked away in the Barrio Santa Cruz, the hospital de los Venerables is a welcome oasis of rest and peace.

Overpriced for what it is, essentially a beautiful chapel with a couple of lovely pieces of art. But if you do the "get lost in Barrio de Santa Cruz" thing, this will inevitably be on your way at some point, and it's worth taking a look at if you don't care about throwing around a couple of Euros here and...
