About San Telmo Museo, San Sebastian

This is a historic museum situated in the Old Town inside an old 16th century magnificent building. This was earlier a place of a Dominician Convent. Used previously on as an artillery barrack, this was transformed into a municipal museum in the 20th century. The building is completely of the Renaissance style with the cloisters and the canvass decorations. Most of the decorative works were the contributions of the famous Catalan artist Jose Maria Sert. It was later renovated extensively and a brand new museum with fresh collections added was opened up in 2011.
