The convent building that houses this extensive collection of Spanish art nearly upstages the paintings inside. Built in 1594 for the order of the Merced Calzada de la Asunción, it benefited from Sevilla’s golden age of painting and ceramics (the courtyard tiles are enthralling). Inside the galleries are the greatest works of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, including a gigantic image of the Immaculate Conception originally painted for the Convento de San Francisco. Other highlights include works by Sevilla-born Juan Valdés Leal, and Francisco de Zurbarán.
