The museum houses the largest public art collection in Asturias.

The Fine Arts Museum of Asturias is the main museum in the Principality and houses the largest public collection of art in the region, ranging from paintings and prints, to photography and applied and industrial arts. Outstanding among all the works on display is El Greco's The Apostolate, painted by the artist between 1585 and 1590.

The museum occupies three buildings in the old quarter of Oviedo, very close to the cathedral: the Velarde Mansion (1767), a masterpiece by the architect Reguera; the Oviedo-Portal House (1660), the work of Cantabrian architect Melchor de Velasco; and a building dating from the 1940s housing different museum services (offices, warehouses and stores, shops, meeting facilities, etc.).
