The building is atmospheric. On the ground floor the Emilio Varela collection (temporary) was a treat especially as he was a student of Sorolla (catch his work in the Museo Pio in Valencia). Some lovely Alicante landscapes to view. Upstairs are the 3 Goya print collections on loan from the Prado until the 11th June. 'Los Desastres de La Guerra'... More

This is a fine art gallery in a lovely old building and its all very well laid out. Entrance is free. The gallery showcases the work of local artists primarily from the last 2 centuries.

I had great expectations of gallery, particularly because an online guide indicated that it housed some works by Sorolla (my favourite Spanish artist). Unfortunately, Sorolla had been and gone since it was only a temporary exhibition.

MUBAG is located in a lovely old building which has been carefully and tastefully brought into the 21st century. The artwork is very well presented and there are some very good pieces.

Four floors of wonderful art displayed in a building that was once a palace right in the middle of the city. Serene atmosphere and all for free. Information is only in Spanish yet it does not detract from the enjoyment even if you only speak English. Take the time, well worth it.

Building is the' best part of the visit and also the way the items are displayed but nothing is in english (or any other language - only Spanish) - no audio ! no shop ! no pamphlet or written guide - really spoiled it for me - BUT it is free and has truly lovely and spotlessly clean toilets !

located in a fine old palace is this very modern gallery housing some great works of art - more or less the history of art in Alicante
