  • This Seville building contains the best of the Sevillian Baroque architecture, sculpture and pintura:Figueroa, Murillo, Valdés Leal, Roldán... And the best the iconographic program to serve to the charity by Miguel de Mañara, which still stands. Beautiful courtyards and isoberbia Church. For me it is a gem as well situated can after visiting it drink in any of the many and good tapas bars of the arenal.

  • We loved it. Founded by a wealthy family male, all their property to a hospital for sick and poor because I thought that there was only this paradise destination. Although it has some selfishness, it could all be so selfish as this man... Currently is destined to people higher with diseases degenerative type Alzheimer. The Church is the most striking. Pictures beautiful, although the French took the prettiest of Murillo and they have not returned them... The wonderful altarpiece. Book a hole in your planning to watch it carefully. I suppose that in an hour the majority of people do it. We were more enjoying that wonder. The audioguide us proved very useful to understand the pictures and the history of the site.

  • Was all a surprise visit this old Hospice with a church really impressive, with a decor ornate but very nice. A few patios very comfortable. A monument not placed within the tour and that really there is that recomandarlo.

  • The most famous works by Valdés Leal herein: creepy paintings Finis Gloriae Mundi and In Ictu Oculi, which remind us that the worldly wealth does not face death.
