Capilla de los Marineros, Seville

(110+ reviews on the web)
Church
Located conveniently close to the canal, Capilla de los Marineros was built as a Catholic church for sailors. Though constructed in 1759, French occupation saw the church secularized--it served as a warehouse, Anglican church, and theater before being converted back to its original purpose in 1953. Step inside the small, white, Baroque building to admire its ornate gilded altar. The dazzling structure features an image of Virgen de la Esperanza, the patron saint of Triana sailors and an important part of the city's Semama Santa celebrations.

  • Visit the chapel of the sailors on the eve of Easter, is full of people who want to see the Esperanza de Triana in his Pallium for processions through the streets of Seville in the early morning. It deserves to see this image in its splendor and beauty.

  • Here you will find the Esperanza de Triana coming out in procession with his Christ in Holy week. It is located in the Barrio de Triana, crossing the bridge.

  • If we visited the District of Triana, after having crossed the Guadalquivir by Isabel II Bridge and walk through the Plaza del Altozano, admiring the modern sculpture of the Bullfighter Juan Belmonte; We can enter into the street purity. We are in a narrow street with houses painted in light colours, which highlights the beautiful facade of the chapel of the sailors. Small church with one nave with a beautiful coffered ceiling in its roof. Inside is the anonymous image of the Virgen de la Esperanza de Tríana, worshipped with great fervour in the city. Also in the same Chapel is the image of the Christ of the three falls. Visit essential for devoted people and art lovers.

  • Built in the middle of the 18th century, on the same site that had been the chapel of the College of Mareantes of Seville, located in the Triana district, and is home to the Hermandad de Ntra. Ms. de la Esperanza, said that founded by the Guild of potters, who later joined the Guild of fishermen (San Juan Bautista), and subsequently the Guild of navigators (three falls). The Chapel is impressive and of great beauty, has the affection of the trianeros, Seville and all the people who come to visit her. On the porch of the entrance a niche is with the image of la Inmaculada Concepción, in el retablo mayor can contemplate the image of our Ms. Esperanza Macarena, in the nave of the Gospel is the image of the most Holy Christ of three falls. Visit inexcusable on our walk through the beautiful neighborhood of Triana.
