This is really something different within t walls of the old city. Still it is a modern building shaped in an old one. Nice to see the auditorium and garden. As for the collection: mediocre.

The Vicente museum is a gem in Segovia. The children’s programming as amazing and the exhibits quite wonderful. The museum is sort of hidden, but it is not more than a minute off the main Street. Totally worth the visit. Don’t miss this gem.

Indebted to Surrealism and Dada, Vicente's little sculptures of "found objects" make you smile, and his colourful paintings are heart-elevating. The medieval building is a fine venue in it itself, and when we were visiting, on a Saturday afternoon, we had the museum more or...More

We weren't familiar with this artist, but we found a Spanish artist who finished his career in America...influenced by artists like Pollack. Beautifully displayed.

I really enjoyed my visit but I am a fan of modern art. Vicente's work is typical of the 50s and 60s modern abstract period. If you are not sure about seeing this check out the non-permanent exhibition. I saw a wonderful photo exhibit by...More

Tucked into Henry IV's 15th-Century palace in Segovia, the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo Esteban Vicente is a little gem of a museum, devoted entirely to the work of Vicente. Haters of abstract art will want to skip it, but those who like the work of...More

What can I say? Well I had hoped that there would be a collection of contemporary art by various artists, but Vicente's work was the only one on display during my visit. So, lots of untitled pieces (probably 90%) giving no clue as to where...More
