Hospital de la Caridad, Seville

4.0
Hospital de la Caridad is a chapel that serves as both a religious site and a functioning hospital, providing social and medical care to some of Seville's elderly poor. Walk through the courtyard of the church, where you can appreciate the Tuscan columns and arches decorated with tiles depicting biblical scenes. There are marble fountain sculptures near the church's entrance. Inside, you will see paintings by Murillo and Valdes Leal covering the walls, as well as arches and domes decorated in Baroque style and extensive plasterwork. Make sure to take in the main altarpiece, decorated in gold and polychrome, with an array of sculptures and columns.

    The church is part of a bigger complex that was originally built as a hospital for the poor (and is now a residence for the elderly). I strongly recommend picking up the audio guide when you buy the e...  more »

    Located between the Cathedral and the River, a stone's throw from the Torre del Oro, the Hospital de la Caridad is one of the cultural highlights of Seville. Big thanks to the legendary nobleman Don Miguel Mañara (of whom is claimed that is Don Giovanni or Don Juan, but that is very unlikely), it is still always a shelter home for the elderly where history, however, the highest floor-thanks to the wonderful courtyard and the magnificent Baroque church. Admire the Delft blue wall mosaics with their inscriptions in Dutch and the astonishing paintings by Murillo and Valdés Leal in the richly decorated Church. Unlike most sights in Seville you here not to stand in line, and there are always a few friendly attendants around those with pleasure their historical tidbits. Nice souvenir shop with interesting documentation on the building and Don Miguel.

  • The 8 euros entrance fee for the tiny exhibition is too expensive especially compared to 1.5 euros for the much better collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville.
  • Very expensive for what you get to see.
  • Visit obliged. He still bows and ships of the old shipyards. The best the Church, with the two famous paintings of Valdés Leal: the aftermath and in the twinkling of an eye

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.
