St. Pius V Fine Arts Museum
ART in capital letters
Considered the second state gallery behind the Prado Museum, St. Pius V college was founded in the 17th century with the sole intention of training priests. It is characterized by its heavy structure composed of a façade framed by two superb towers that give it the appearance of a quarterdeck. Its elegant Baroque dome with Valencian tile in cobalt color is one of the icons of the city, majestically overlooking the old bed of the Turia river. Its exhibits include numerous styles such as international Gothic, Valencian Renaissance influenced by the Quattrocento spirit, Spanish Baroque, among other works of Ribalta, Orrente or Espinosa or the Valencian school of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: Sorolla, Benlliure, Pinazo or Degrain. Among some of the most appreciated works are a self portrait of Velázquez, several Goyas or a Virgin and child by Il Pinturicchio.
