Basilica de la Macarena, Seville

4.4
As the home of the famous 17th-century Virgin of Hope wooden statue, Basilica de la Macarena draws its fair share of visitors. Most come for the morning procession on Good Friday--the largest of its kind in Spain--but you can view the statue any time of year. Once inside the Neobaroque church, head to the main altar to see the statue. It sits surrounded by silver and gold with a small display of pictures and artifacts that show the statue’s significance to Holy Week. La Macarena is revered highly by Sevillanos, so don’t be surprised if locals try to push you toward the exits during mass. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Seville holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Basilica de la Macarena and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Famous church whose construction dates from 1941, beautiful and welcoming, it cannot be meet in Seville. The image of the Virgin is enthroned on a beautiful altar. Beyond the religion which they profess, it is inexcusable not to visit it

  • Beautiful! Make sure you turn your camera's flash off, take your hats off & turn your phone on silent. Be respectful of what this Holy place represents for people & those who are there. A little bit away from the main tourist area, but well worth the visit.
  • It's beautiful. If in Seville you must visit about 20 Catholic churches to enjoy the beauty they hold.
  • A small Basilica housing the Macarena. Beautiful in all ways. Try to visit 10 min b4 the mass (eg 7pm)...you get to see the full glory of the Macarena n the altar with the lights turned on. Makes up for no photo taking allowed in the church.
  • Great golden interior.
  • Pretty church with lots of history
