Seville City - Museums

Museums in Seville City

Seville has several excellent museums representing a wide range of subjects, historical period and style. Bullfighting fans will enjoy the small museum at the bullring, while the Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares is devoted to a more general tradition of arts and culture. The archeological museum covers a period dating back to Paleolithic times, while the Casa de Pilatos and Ayuntamiento are examples of fine stately homes. Palaces, such as the Alcazar and the Palacio San Telmo are magnificent in their opulance while the fascinating tobacco factory which inspired the famous Carmen gypsy heroine is, today, part of the city's bustling university campus.

The Neo-Baroque theatre of Teatro Lope de Vega dates back to the mid sixteenth century and its faded opulence creates the perfect setting for live performances.
