    Monastery with fortress aspect and double church... Membership is free and is visited in 45 minutes. To enter you must be there at o'clock a.m., 10:00, 11:00... There are rooms that are not in very good condition but worth the visit and enjoy this place.

    We had seen this massive building from the motorway on our way to Italica. By car it is actually only 5 minutes away and could be easily walked. The building looks but is open to the public. The hours...  more »

  • Cultural monument of great importance. A sentence that seems to have no support from public administration, culture etc....

  • Very interesting your visit and its history, was the main reformist focus during the reign of Felipe II. Books prohibited by the Inquisition were read in this monastery. Many monks were executed in auto faith. Some managed to flee as Casiodoro de Reina and Cipriano de Varela, this was the author of the first Spanish translation of the Bible, known as the Bible of the bear. Admire the unmatched in the cloister of the evangelists, fundamental for the study of fifteenth-century Sevillian painting and murals of the cloister of the dead. You can view all masterfully carved by Juan Martínez Montañés in his altarpiece presided over by St. Jerome, possibly the best, the more complete and mature of the famous sculptor. He appreciated the countless styles which houses. It is a basically Gothic and Mudéjar building, but there are elements of classical, Baroque and Renaissance.

  • A little-known gem. Cradle of Protestantism in Spain and origin of the Bible of the bear Reina Valera

  • It is a monastery that is worth visiting for its rich architectural, sculptural and pictorial. It is very close to the ruins of Italica which will add more value to our trip.

  • This monastery is clearly one of the great small jewels hidden in that "other Seville" only know of here and which allows us to get into places and historic moments of our city. Sure that when you are going or coming, the A-66 is a majestic building at the height of Santiponce and although it has parts that have not been restored, or you can visit, come to know it is a must to go sightseeing in the area and complement an excursion to Itálica and eat meat by the people. So much so, that the most of the space is not accessible to the public and only a small portion is that we will know. Even so, well worth because inside it houses unique spaces architecturally and works of artists like Martínez Montañés or Juan de Mesa. Enter is free and is relatively easy to park nearby, so there are no excuses to come and enjoy this gem hidden in full view of everyone in the Aljarafe.
