A great legacy

Set in the old Merced Calzada Convent, which dates from the beginning of the 17th century, its collection includes works that go from the Gothic period through to the 20th century.

The Seville Museum of Fine Art's collection has come together over its history, thanks mainly to ecclesiastical items that have been sold off, private donations and public acquisitions. It has numerous rooms where you can see brilliant works by artists such as El Greco, Pacheco, Velázquez and Alonso Cano, amongst others. In the exhibition, special mention should be made of the area dedicated to Murillo and to the Seville school of the 17th century. Also outstanding are the religious paintings by Zurbarán.
