A Trove of Treasured Paintings, Housed In a 17th-Century Hospital

Tucked away in Seville’s labyrinthine Barrio Santa Cruz, this quiet and peaceful villa is now a museum housing a small but exquisite collection of oil paintings by Diego Velasquez, Francisco Varela, and other painters of the Spanish Golden Age.

Since 1991, the hospital has been the home of the Focus-Abengoa Foundation, which had spent four years restoring the building. It was inaugurated by Queen Sofia and marked with an exhibition honoring Sevillian painters of the Golden Age.
