Capilla de los Marineros, Seville

4.6
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.

  • We have enjoyed today on the visit to the chapel of the sailors, to contemplate the Esperanza de Triana in his Pallium for its season of penance in the dawn. She was beautiful, dazzling. Jesus in one of her falls, helped by the Cyrenean and preceded by a Roman soldier on horseback.

  • The best brotherhood around the world. The brotherhood of the Esperanza de Triana holders are the best. It is located on the street purity. I am brother for 3 years, but I have never lost their season of penance to the Santa Iglesia Catedral and the actual parish of Santa Ana.Los steps of the Christ and the Virgin are the more bonitos.magnifica brotherhood! great job to the section of priostia, stewardship etc... opinion: for the passage of Christ put a slave, for the passage from Virgin to San Juan Evangelista and make a new step for "miarma"

  • The chapel of the sailors, located in the popular district of Triana, presents a properly Sevillian architectural style of the second half of the 18th century. It is rectangular with a lintel supported by Corbels, on which rests a pediment party by a niche. It is an image of clay representing the Inmaculada Concepción, conducted by Antonio Illanes in 1962. The facade is crowned by a belfry, adorned with pinnacles and vases with bronze lilies made, as well as the three bells, by Leon Ramón in 1998. The Chapel is divided into three naves, a central and two side - fruit of the last enlargement carried out between 2003 and 2010 – which do not reach the foot of the same. The carved coffered ceiling of its roof, made in the missing college Villasís from red pine stands out. The central lamp, carved in the 19th century glass, comes from the defunct Britz great coffee. The presbytery is chaired by the altarpiece, two bodies and three streets from the second third of the 18th century. The venerated image of our Lady of La Esperanza de Triana is located in the central part of the altarpiece. Its author is unknown although attributed to Juan de Astorga, in the 19th century. On the side of the epistle is the nave of San Juan, result of the first phase of enlargement of the Chapel, which took place between 2003 and 2006. It is rectangular and consists of two sections covered by a ceiling roof with a height approximately 5.50 meters. The altar of San Juan Evangelista presides over the header. On your right side is the altar of the Christ's humility and at the foot the altarpiece framework of the coronation of the Virgin. The ship of the Gospel, quite complex in plant, was built in the second phase of the expansion carried out between the year 2008 and 2010. On the wall you can admire the image of the most Holy Christ of three falls, anonymous work of the 17TH century, attributed to Marcos Cabrera, in an altarpiece designed by Manuel Guzmán Bejarano.

  • The chapel of the sailors is located in street purity, in the District of Triana in Seville. This Chapel is currently home to the popular Brotherhood of the Esperanza de Triana, which makes its season of penance in the Sevillan Easter good Friday morning. In 1418 was founded in the Church of Santa Ana the ancient Brotherhood of Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza, by the Guild of potters. More than one century later, in 1542, it merges with the of San Juan Bautista, which belonged to the Guild of fishermen; and later, in the year 1608, with the three falls, formed by sailors. Somewhat later, in the year 1681, the Mareantes of purity Street chapel was proposed to be the College seminar, which would collect the orphans of the seafarers. Thus, next to the chapel the Architect Antonio Rodríguez projected a construction that would welcome to 150 college; but soon saw that this would be insufficient, it was decided to raise another new building of greater dimensions, today known as the Palace of San Telmo. Later, in 1759, a new Chapel rose here himself for the brotherhood, which would remain there until their expulsion during the French invasion, when moved on to the Church of San Jacinto, the Santa Ana, to the convent of los Remedios, and the Church of the incarnation. In that time the chapel of the sailors went through many vicissitudes, changing use frequently, becoming Anglican Church, theatre, warehouse, and even cabaret. In 1953 the brotherhood decides to return to its former chapel, which would rebuild according to a project of Aurelio Gómez Millán, from 1958 to 1962, resulting in a small church with a single nave where failed to make the dome provided for in plans , and with a side chapel in the epistle. In the year 2010 is subjected to a profound renovation and expansion throughout the building, by annexing adjoining farms of street purity, that the House of brotherhood is reformed and is wide the space for worship, opening up a second aisle in the Gospel project of José Ramón Rodríguez Gautier. The façade responds to the compositional schemes of the local architecture of the second half of the 18th century, and focuses on a cover page with broken pediment and niche, finishing with a belfry in 1965, composition serlian, framed between vases of Azucena.

  • The chapel of the sailors although an ancient Church is adapted to the 21st century, in a reform that ended very few years in it can see our Virgin hope of Triana and the most Holy Christ of three falls next to this Chapel is the chapel of Sa NTA Ana very close. If you come to Seville, don't forget to stop by Triana
