Capilla de los Marineros, Seville

(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

In 1953 the brotherhood of hope, at the behest of his spiritual director José Sebastian and Bandaran, decides his recovery, getting works started in 1958 with Aurelio Gómez Millán project. The blessing took place in 1962 and on good Friday of that year the Guild ended their penitential season in its new headquarters. In the year 2010 began expansion works, according to architectural project of José Ramón Rodríguez Gautier, and thanks to the purchase by the brotherhood of farms adjacent to the chapel. Two new altarpieces and modern safety systems for the images are included in the comprehensive refroma of the temple. After the works, the 29 of April 2010, the chapel was blessed by Juan José Asenjo Pelegrina, Archbishop of Seville.
