Booked up to go here as it was very busy on the day we tried, so returned 3 days later. A small venue showing paintings of Murillo and Velazquez work. Although small it has lovely courtyard and further areas to explore.

You see it from the outside and wonder what you're going into. We booked for later in the day. There is a beautiful courtyard, an upstairs gallery all round it with paintings and artefacts, a church with wonderful art and this can be seen through grills from the gallery. The bonus was the Valesquez/ Murillo exhibition, excellent.

The building itself has some nice history but it was the artwork that is fantastic. It changes from time to time but until the end of February, they are featuring Murillo and Valázquez. Entry is inexpensive and includes a very clear audio guide.

Since this was free on Tuesdays we took the opportunity to visit and when arriving 20 minutes early were surprised with the line that took us 1 hour 10 minutes to wait it. So we were grumpy but I'm glad we didn't pay to visit on another day. As we say in the States ... pick your poison. The art... More

Excellent experience with super friendly staff. We saw an important Murillo/Valesquez exhibition which was more insightful than any art interpretation/criticism I have seen before

It is very unassuming from the outside but once you're inside, the serenity envelopes you and makes it a perfect getaway from all the other tourist-thronged attractions. The beautiful shaded courtyard offers a cooling escape on hot afternoons- perfect recharge before heading out again!

Hospital de los Venerables was built as an asylum for priests in 1675. The building is in Baroque style and contains fine frescoes and is used for exhibitions currently (Jan'17) Velasquez and Murillo.

The entry ticket was €8 and it was not worth it. The people at the entrance didn't spoke any English so at first we didn't know if we had to visit the Hospital with a guide. A last we could explore the rooms on our own.

Hidden away in the backstreets this really is worth a visit. Set round a cool, peaceful patio the building is quite small and unremarkable. Then you enter the church which is amazingly ornate and takes your breath away. Beautifully hand painted ceilings and walls and gold embellishment everywhere. There was an exhibition of paintings by Velasquez and Murillo in one... More
