The Museo de Bellas Artes de Sevilla is the most important museum of Fine Arts in Seville and Andalusia and one of the most important museums in Spain.
In the museum you will find works of art dating from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Baroque period to the 20th-century.
The works are mainly by Spanish artists such as Murillo and Velásquez, but also by foreign painters such as Pieter Aertsen. It was opened in 1939 in a monastery transformed in Mudejar style in 1662. At that time, the museum was intended to house works of art received from monasteries and temples.
In the 20th-century, the museum began to house private collections and in 1970 the Fine Arts Museum of Seville received its first permanent art collection.
