Diego de Velázquez is one of the most important painters in the history of art. He was born in a house between San Pedro and Alfalfa, in an almost hidden street, whose facade faithfully transports us to the time of the painter. The apparent humility of the home will make you think of that child, that young man, who in the beginnings of the seventeenth century was becoming a genius.
So see his main works in Seville, head to the Velázquez Centre at the Focus Abengoa Foundation, known for the Santa Rufina. Seville pays homage to its most universal painter with a statue in the Plaza del Duque.
Bartolomé Esteban Murillo is another great Sevillian baroque painter. The Museo de Bellas Artes (the second gallery in Spain) has a huge collection of his work. The museum’s beautiful plaza is home to its statue. Also, in the Hospital de la Caridad, you can admire the quality of Murillo, admiring the paintings that adorn its walls.
