We were en route to the Bull Ring and Art Nouveau Train Station when students from the University politely invited us to visit this incredible place. None of our Guide Books had highlighted this venue as being of great significance and initially we were reluctant to be distracted from our plan. Thankfully, we changed our plan for the day and...

Small impressive art gallery including Caravaggio and El Greco. Chapel and baroque church. I was the only one taken round by my guide and had the pleasure of hearing the choir practising in... More

The Patriarch Museum has plenty of good art. There are two paintings by El Greco (the Adoration of the Sheperds and St. Francis and Fray Leon Pondering on Death), the Crucifixion by Caravaggio and several good paintings by Joan de Joanes. The courtyard is beautiful and has a sculpture of St. Juan de Ribera, created by the famous sculptor from... More

Went because I believed they had an El Greco painting. Correct. Small but genuine. The rest of the paintings were the favoured Renaissance themes of Religion and Penitance. Attractive courtyard but not much else. The Patriarco Church next door is a completely different experience. Very helpful receptionist.

A museum that is hardly visited but worth every effort.. if you like Spanish art!!!! Maybe not for beginners but even the walk around the building is worth the ticket. GO!

There is a Renaissance cloister and there is a statue in the middle of the patio,... More
