“Free entry but not worth a detour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The majority of this gallery contains religious paintings. Although some of them are very well executed the subject matter is repetitive and frankly boring. The upper part of the gallery contains a few modern non-religious works which are worth seeing but only if you have time to kill.

“Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The calm, beautiful building house the most amazing pictures. Many of them are religious paintings but there are others from different genres, including great paintings of toreadors.

“Too many Religious paintings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Enjoyed our visit there! Very cheap entrance of 1.5 eurs if you don't have passport with you, otherwise free admission!
We went quickly through all the rooms with religious paintings and found a very good El Greco and some very good artists from 20th century which we really liked! Worth a visit if you can fit it in during your trip....

“Great Fine Art Collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Great Fine Art Collection. Well my title says it really, but the building and courtyards are also down to a fine art.

“Very good representation of the history of Sevillian art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

A modest collection of Sevilian paintings dating from the middle ages to contemporary pieces. Very enjoyable visit although information is only presented in Spanish
