Opinions about Fine Arts Museum in Granada
The best fine arts museum in Granada
The best fine arts museum in Granada, just above the Alhambra museum (which you should visit as well). Good selection of art pieces from ancient monasteries and churches of Granada.

This art museum has several rooms with more than 2000 beautiful paintings and sculptures by the finest artists of Andalucía like Alberto Cano, very famous sculptor and a painter. You can find a lot of his work in Granada.

The period of history starting from the Nasrid era up to the present day.

Worth a visit, only €1.50 entrance fee.
Good local art museum
The museum is located on the top floor of the Carlos V Palace inside of the Alhambra compound.

Good collection of the painting and sculptures from the Granada’s artists from the 17th - 20th century.

In the 9th century the Spanish government expropriated all religious art from the monasteries and churches. Most of the objects found here are those expropriated items.
