Fine Arts Museum in Sevilla, Spain

Housed in the renovated Convento de la Merced, Sevilla's magnificent Fine Arts Museum has occupied the building since 1839. The extensive complex of intertwining halls and beautiful courtyards from the 13th century former convent is now graced by priceless works of such greats as El Greco, Zurbarán, Velazquez, Valdés Leal and the great Sevillano painter Estebán Murillo. The fifteen spacious halls featuring pieces from the middle ages up through the 20th century have earned Sevilla's Fine Arts Museum acclaim as Spain's most important art gallery after the Prado in Madrid.
