Owner description: The Museum of Fine Arts of Seville, founded in 1839, contains a collection of works from medieval times through the early 20th century. It displays a choice selection of works by Spanish artists from the 17th century, the so-called Golden Age of Sevillian painting. Monday Closed

The Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla [Museum of Fine Arts of Seville] is a wonderful art museum with mainly Spanish visual arts of several centuries and displaying superb works from the Golden Age of Sevillian painting by famous artists such as Velázquez & Murillo. The museum was founded in 1839 in a redundant convent and the building is worth seeing too. They will insist on you using the safe lockers for your bags and cameras when you check in (which is wise) and don’t forget to show your passport as entry is free to EU citizens. Recommended, even though the majority of the paintings are of religious subjects. Many are worthily pious paintings but there are lots of examples of inspirationally good masterpieces. Besides, whatever you see (including the building) still merits the experience of going to this museum.

Take a trip through the history of spanish painting in a beautiful building. We especially enjoyed the rooms of 19th and 20th century works, especially the Morillos

The museum had a good collection of Spanish paintings, but my favorite part was the gallery that had been converted from a church. Walking into the grand room was breathtaking, with soaring ceilings and huge paintings. For only a few euros, it's definitely worth a visit!

Entry is free if you are an EU citizen (not just of Spain), so if possible take an ID card or passport, although we weren't asked for ours. Otherwise it is only one euro 50 anyway. Once inside, head for the permanent collection and enjoy the shady courtyards of this lovely building, which used to be a convent but actually reflects Arabic design (it will seem very familiar if you have ever visited Morocco, for instance.) We visited in winter and it was pleasant enough, but in summer heat this would be a great place to cool down and chill out.

The art collection is apparently one of the best in Spain, but 90% of it is religious art, and that inevitably begins to get a bit samey after a while, unless you are particularly into that sort of thing. Nonetheless, it is easy to spend an hour or two here enjoying the ambience as much as the art.

When we visited on a Sunday morning, there was a outdoor artist's market, with various styles of paintings and drawings set up across the plaza. What a lovely way to spend a morning!

This art gallery has mainly religious art, set out in a series of beautiful rooms. It was originally a convent and the building itself is worth a visit. If you are a member of the European Union take your passport because entrance is free for you!
