Capilla de los Marineros, Seville

4.7
#15 of 37 in Historic Sites in Seville
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.

    The chapels attract my attention by the solemnity that we breathe, art, history. This is not the exception.

    Full day Triana since July 20. Go in the neighborhood in the morning for the market or after 6 pm.

    Majestic but not Church collection, to visit silent to see the Madonna dos Maineros watching you and guides you. Located in a quiet and almost popular barrio is appreciated for the atmosphere that you breathe. To visit in silence and meditation.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
