Lovely courtyard to sit and think. Upstairs the art works were very interesting - especially the Caravaggio . Not a huge collection but enough to absorb and enjoy. Pleasant staff - happy to advise on request but otherwise left to ourselves. Really glad we went

I'm so sad to give a bad review to this place because the supervisors are so kind and available. But there is almost nothing to see. It was an old seminary of the XIV century, almost restored or rebuilt. The museum host various piece of...More

The museum is very interesting, there are paintings of El Greco, as well as one Caravaggio. Interesting is the chapel to the museum. It works only in the late morning and early afternoon.

This little museum doesn't come anywhere near the top of recommendations to visit in Valencia which is a pity as it is well worth a visit. As you enter there is a beautiful, quiet court yard and the museum is in a small room upstairs....More

This seminary is a beautiful building - the cloistered courtyard is so quiet away from the sounds of the city, and the chapel is beautiful, decorated with tiles and tapestries. The small museum holds outstanding works, including a Caravaggio and El Greco. It also has...More

For 2 euros you can visit the museum, cloister, chapel and church. The museum has religious artwork. The guards were quite helpful, providing a short summary of the site in English.
