Went with friends who normally spend hours in each museum but we were in and out in 20 minutes. This was partly because only the first floor was open. One room was huge and hundreds of paintings were very badly displayed. Paintings were plastered from...More

What a find. Close to the port and housed in romantic architectural building, this gallery was free. Mainly religious oils but also pictures explaining the history of Tenerife, botanical sketches and paintings of Dior inspired 1950s Miss Tenerife.

The ambience is wonderful, even if much of the art wasn't to our taste. However, we had the place to ourselves and enjoyed that peaceful unhurried time to consider the paintings and sculpture. The best piece is the fabulous triptych at the top: intense colour...More

If you are looking for a good range of (mostly) Spanish art from the Renaissance period (most on loan from the Prado in Madrid), then this is worth a visit. If our experience is anything to go by it won't be too crowded! We also...More

A selection of Spanish art from religious subjects to more modern landscapes. Gives an overview of what was popular in Spain at certain periods. Very quiet inside and free admission.

Hello - sorry we don't know; it was January when we visited and I'm not sure we knew then. We went in the middle of the day and it was open. It only takes twenty minutes to see everything.
