  • These phenomenal paintings are associated with the history of the church. One of the original functions was to receive dead bodies of the poor or unknown in the street. Death has become the inevitable...  more »
  • The Hospital and Church of the charity are two interesting examples of Baroque Seville. Driven by Don Miguel de Mañara, that some consider the historical reference of the myth of Don Juan, offer interesting paintings by Murillo and Valdés Leal, among other large plastic creators. Vale worth visit, in pleasant surroundings, near the shipyards and the Teatro de la Maestranza, in the District of Arenal.

  • The today's nursing home was founded in the 17.Jh as the asylum for the sick and poor. It is a beautiful baroque church. Particularly worth seeing are the paintings by Murillo and Valdés Leal.
