“Acquired taste”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

This grand building has huge rooms with mainly large pictures of Christ crucifixion and vague Spanish artist that unless you are in the know are oblivious to you.
You do however come to a room that must have been part of the old church and it has the most wonderful ceiling housing a collection of paintings.
It's free if you are an EU citizen which is a bonus.

“Superb building and collection”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Just across the road from the Tempa Museo apartments. It's the second-best gallery in Spain after the Prado. Arranged on two floors around three wonderful courtyard gardens there are breathtaking masterpieces from every epoch - the huge modern picture of the dying matador made us go back again and again.

On Sundays there is a sale of amateur paintings in the square outside.

Your visit to Spain/Seville wouldn't be complete without time spent here.

“Madonnas anyone?”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A lot of big canvases of the Virgin Mary with angels and saints and tired tourists in tow. Had an exhibit of Northern European seascapes and landscaptes in the gallery upstairs.

“A nice surprise in a less visited part of the city”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is a very nice museum that does not appear to be very visited.
Although there are no great master pieces the museum has some
Paintings from Spanish painters.
It was a former convent and the great hall is stunning
The museum is small and can be done in an hour.
The rooms are well spelled out and numbered which is not the case in many museums in Spain
Well worth a visit
