“Lovely building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

I loved the building as much as the art works. A lot of religious art. Amazing scale of so e of the paintings. The building itself was wonderful and well worth spending a quiet hour or so.

“Overload of religious paintings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Free admission with an EU passport. Lovely building with quiet courtyards. There is simply far too much religious painting here which we both found rather wearing. Kids will find this very boring. It does improve with getting to the later art periods. Check out the Death of the Maestro picture as this looks like an attempt at 3D when viewed from the gallery in front of it.

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours but you have to like religious painting.

“Lovely building, interesting art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

One of the largest collections of Spanish art in Spain. A lot of it is standard religious stuff but there is a wonderful room of Zurbarans which make a visit worthwhile in themselves. The building is interesting too, with several lovely courtyards and wonderful tiling. It's slightly out of the way to get to but a pleasant enough walk.

“Acquired taste”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
