Museum of Fine Arts of Seville

Local name: Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla

The Museum of Fine Arts in Seville presents a collection of works of art from the Gothic age to modern times. The most valuable elements of the collection include paintings by El Greco, Valdés Leal, Pacheco, Murillo, Velázquez, Zurbarán and Alonso Cano. A special place is occupied by works related to the seventeenth-century Seville school and nineteenth-century Andalusian painting. In addition to the permanent exhibition in the museum, you can also see interesting themed temporary exhibitions.

The museum is housed in the Convento de la Merced Calzada building from the 17th century. The fingertip was officially opened to visitors in 1841. Initially, the museum's collections came from confiscations made on sacred objects. In later years, many donors offered the institution further exhibits. In the 20th century, most of the paintings were purchased thanks to contributions from the Museum Friends Association.
