Bilbao Fine Arts Museum

Recommended
The two buildings that make up the Museo de Bellas Artes, one built in 1945, the other in the 1960s, house the second largest collection of Spanish art after the Prado in Madrid. The ancient art section is dedicated to Spanish painters from the 13C-17C, as well as Flemish artists from the 15C-17C: Morales, El Greco, Zurbarán, Ribeira and Goya for the Iberian peninsula; Quentin Metsys, Ambrosius Benson, Gossaert for northern Europe. The rooms dedicated to contemporary art, in a vast, high-ceilinged space lit through huge bay windows, are particularly remarkable.
