The gallery is located in an 18th century palace. The museum opened in 2001 after a complete restoration of a somewhat dilapidated building. The museum collection is a collection of paintings by artists and sculptors from Alicante and the surrounding area who worked in the period of the 16th-20th centuries. There are works by H. Agrosot, L. Casanov, A. Hisbert, F. Cabrera and other masters. The museum has a program to support young talents.

Lovely little art museum in Alicante. It's free to enter as well! Unfortunately during my visit the second floor was closed, but that just means I can visit again when in Alicante! Staff are friendly and helpful as well. Worth the visit!
There was an unsettling vibe about the museum, different staff members followed us around the whole time. The art was absolutely phenomenal, but sadly the museum had a no photos policy. The building was nice and maintained, and had AC to keep us cool.. Read more ». I’ve got nothing to complain about, apart from the weird staff members which ruined the experience.

The only thing I did not like is that they will not allow you to take photos. Usually there are some works of arts that you can take photos with...not here.
A place to go for art lovers. Nicely curated exhibitions of local artists. No crowds here so you can enjoy the art and escape from the city buzz and summer heat.
A delightful collection of Spanish artists of different trends and eras, starting from 1440. The exposition is located on two levels. The entrance is free. Visited on Tuesday at 11 am.
Great gallery. The building has a lovely, timeless quality, with ancient stone walls and beautiful wooden floors. Can't believe that it is free to get in. The quality of the art is amazing for a small city. I also noticed that the paintings di..

Nice tiny museum with rather impressive collection for such a little place. We really enjoied it. By the way, entry was free. ))
A wonderful gallery of beautiful paintings and worthy of 5 stars except for the hostile reception of the staff which made me rate it 3 stars..I would happily purchase a ticket but the staff I met could certainly do with some customer service training.. Read more »..
Nice museum with stunning artworks but wasn't allowed to take pictures inside.
Wonderful museum with absolutely stunning art. The paintings are mostly from Spanish artists and made out of oil paint. The only minus was, that you couldn’t take photos inside as I had to find out… but still definitely worth a visit.
Really nice gallery. Good to get out of daytime heat also.
Well curated content with descriptions. Primary artists from Alicante. 18-19th Century. Entry is free.
Excellent gallery in the heart of Alicante. Fantastic selection of paintings and lots of historical information on the area . Definitely worth a visit.
Mainly oil painting but with good variety and local artists
It is free so must see ?
Manageable art gallery. Beautiful works of art. Particularly enjoyed the temporary exhibition of paintings of women
Made me feel cultured again xD
Amazing gallery/museum focused on local artists. Free entrance, very kind staff, no cameras allowed.

Defo pop in great to see how the city was in its former glory
Nice, sadly no english signs.
Great artwork, some of the paintings you think that the eyes are following you.
Small. Intimate. Worth a visit. One hour plus would suffice.
Some paintings with English translation - Picasso’s teacher being one of them.
Enjoyed a free musical evening - piano & student classical singers
