The most beautiful and most visited museum in Seville is the Museum of Fine Arts. The museum's collection shows Spanish works of art throughout history, with a special emphasis on the creativity of the Middle Ages, Baroque and Renaissance, but also something more modern, more precisely the beginning of the 20th century. Here you can see the masterpieces of famous painters such as El Greco, Murillo, Francisco da Herrera, Pieter Aersten, etc.
The museum's collection, which includes the Middle Ages, represents the golden age of Sevillian painting. The museum was founded in 1839 in a building that was the monastery of the Order of the Calzada de la Asuncion, whose founder was Saint Peter Nolasco during the reign of Ferdinand III. During deamortization, i.e. at the time when monasteries and temples were closed, the museum collected works of art from those religious buildings.
In the square where the museum is located, Plaza del Museo, there is a bronze statue of the Baroque Spanish painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.
The entrance fee for the museum is €1.50
