The grounds of the Andalusia Contemporary Art Centre

The Andalusia Contemporary Art Centre in Seville can be found on a fascinating site: originally a 15th century monastery, it was acquired by an English merchant in the 19th century and became a ceramics factory. Remnants of both these incarnations can be found all over the grounds, which are enormous.

The art centre is on the ‘other’ side of the river from the city centre, but we were able to walk from our hotel on the Alameda.  Highlights were the inaccessible courtyards, seen from inside the gallery, containing beautiful trees losing their leaves; the orange grove and the small tree house sculptures dotted around.
