  • Part of a large Historical Hospital complex,this Chapel has a high Baroque Altar and numerous paintings adorn the walls. Excellent lighting and good labeling.  more »
  • This building is located in a central area of Seville, just behind the theatre of La Maestranza, but usually go unnoticed, while the Church houses some of the most valuable treasures of the city. He was a former Hospital created by Miguel de Mañara in the 17TH century to help those most in need. He surrounded himself with the best artists that had in Seville to decorate it. It has numerous works of Murillo, though some copies because the originals were stolen during the French invasion. Also keeps two of the most important works of another Seville painter: Valdés Leal, his hardness over death contrasts sharply with the Murillo's, much sweeter. Not only does paintings, also has a beautiful baroque altarpiece with sculptures by Pedro Roldán. The entrance to the building is cheap: 4 euros, and also includes audio guide in different languages. Totally recommend their visit.
