Un mes, una estampa. Ver Sevilla

Un mes, una estampa. Ver Sevilla is the brand-new activity promoted by Focus Educa, the Focus Foundation Education Department, that features some of the most outstanding engravings of our collection.

An image will be on display at the Baroque Library every month, so that visitors can contemplate and enjoy these artworks treasured by our Room of Engravings.

Furthermore, leading experts will give talks on each of the selected pieces.

Un mes, una estampa. Ver Sevilla is an exceptional chance to view some of the most important images kept in our Room of Engravings, a unique collection of its kind both in Spain and abroad, which includes a total of 300 works specialized in Sevillian iconography from the 16th to 20th centuries.
