Sanskrit: Baddha Konasana

Location: Museo de Bellas Artes in Sevilla. What a hidden gem. Today’s cultural calendar event was a visit to the fine art museum in Seville. It’s practically in the backyard of the students’ dorms but it has gone unnoticed since we arrived. It doesn’t boast such famous works as the Prado or Reina Sofia, but it’s surprisingly large and full of works recovered from cathedrals and convents. It does boast a couple small El Grecco and Valasquez paintings. A fun fact is that Sevilla was actually famous for painting schools for a small time frame. The museum is housed in the former convent of the Merced Calzada. It was a nice afternoon although a bit rushed. I would definitely like to return and spend more time just enjoying the atmosphere and seeing more of the art.
