Some nice pieces in both museums (there are two different sites a short walk apart). It's free to visit and they have some good pieces. Goya, Picasso, Miro, El Greco are amongst the collection, as well as local artists from the area.

Older Bella's Artes Museum of Asturias exhibits XVIII Century Spanish artmong the paintings exhibited, I found the El Greco School paintings of the 12 apostles magnificent. Then, around the block, a brand new modern museum recently inaugurated (in the future both pavilions will be reunited) can be visited. They exhibit modem sculptures and paintings. Beside wonderful Asturian painters you can... More

The main building houses several El Grecos and various Asturian painters. But nothing was in English and i think I missed another part of the exhibition in another building. But where was it? Better signage in English would help to boost visitor numbers.

This neat museum is free and pretty amazing, The had 12 El Grecos arranged around a central core on the 2nd floor. A fantastic stairway with an entire wall of painted panels, marvelous wood carvings, statues and triptychs.

I have been here twice. The museum has some fine paintings from el Greco, Zurbaran (Jesus in the Cross) Sorolla among others. It has also a nice collection of medieval art. This attraction is free, definitively it is worth to check out. When I visited the museum, a part of the building was closed for renovations. I think that the... More

Worth a visit if you have time to spare - not much in the way of international artists but some good and intriguing pictures both historic and modern.

We were attracted by the Sorollas and ended up admiring the local painters such as Nicanor Piñole. The museum is located in 2 old palaces so only stepping into these structures made it even more pleasurable. Quiet, spacious, well-maintained and highly advisable if you visit Oviedo. Only a few steps from the Cathedral and you can enjoy the sight of... More

When we visited there was an excellent contemporary temporary exhibition on the ground floor. We also enjoyed the work on the second floor which covered the period from end of 19th century to mid 20th century or thereabouts.

I should start off by saying this museum is free to enter. Woohoo! There are very impressive works of art located inside and the building is very beautiful. You don't need a lot of time to see the whole museum because it's actually pretty small, I would probably say an hour would be enough time to see everything...maybe 1.5 hours.... More
