On the Virgen de los Reyes Plaza, near the fountain, orangers and calves waiting for tourists, you will find the archbishop's palace, a xviiith century building with red and pale ochre, so characteristic of the Seville baroque constructions. Had it been for many years to admire him from outside, it is now ancient history since the Archbishop opened his doors since September 2017. Making this place the third pinacothèque in Seville, after the Museum of Fine Arts and the Cathedral. For years, through purchases and donations, the institution has accumulated a large collection of works of art: more than 300 in total, ranging from sixteenth to twentieth century but mostly from baroque period. This includes two Murillo, Virgen Entregando el Rosario a Santo Domingo and La Inmaculada con Fray Juan de Quirós which will become its model for the representation of immaculate and six Zurbarán. Not forgetting works by Herrera el Viejo, Juan de Espinal, Juan de Zamora, Francisco Pacheco and Sebastián de Llanos. During the visit, one can also appreciate the salad de los cuadros, which during the French occupation hosted the feasts given by Marshal Soult or the Salon du Throne, adorned with portraits of the archbishops of Seville.
