Granada through art

Inaugurated in 1839, the museum was moved to its current location, Carlos V Palace, in the grounds of the Alhambra, in 1950.

The mainstay of the collection are paintings and sculptures from the 15th-20th centuries, with works by artists such as Sánchez Cotán, Alonso Cano and Mariano Fortuna. It is divided into four main sections: Renaissance and Mannerism, Granada Baroque, 19th-century painting in Granada, and finally, the beginning of the 20th century to the Avant-garde.
