Seville offers some excellent museums which reflect both Seville's history and its cultural heritage. There is a wealth of Art and Archaeology, as well as other museums which are more focused on local traditions such as Bullfighting and Flamenco. Not to be missed is the Fine Arts Museum, considered the second most important art collection in Spain, which includes paintings by Velázquez and Murillo, both natives of the city, and Goya.
