Hospital de los Venerables

Plaza Venerables, 8, Seville, 41004

The Basics

The Hospital de los Venerables is a must-visit attraction for arts enthusiasts. Marvel at collection highlights by Spanish Golden Age painters, such as Diego Velázquez’ Inmaculada Concepción; and don’t miss the Focus-Abengoa Foundation’s collection of 17th-century paintings, and the recently opened Contemporary Art Gallery. Even if you don’t go inside, it’s worth taking a look at the building, a carefully preserved example of 17th-century Sevillian architecture.

To save time at the entrance, buy your ticket in advance. Some travelers like to pair a museum visit with a neighborhood or city walking tour.
