Museo Bellas Artes
Facing a quaint, lush square harboring the same name, Seville’s Museo de Bellas Artes is home to one of the finest collections of Spanish art in the world. From medieval to modern, the who’s-who of Spain’s most respected artists are well represented here, from Velazquez to El Greco to Murillo and beyond. For a small fee, visitors are free to roam the spacious, two-floored museum or take a breather in the manicured topiary-decorated interior patios—each vibrant with patterned-tile cloisters. As a side bonus, the building itself has been lovingly transformed over the centuries into one of the city’s most exquisite examples of Andalusian architecture.
