  • I me closer to Triana from the hillock by calle Castilla and go visiting some other bar where cover. At the end of the calle Castilla is the puppy, at the Church of expiration. Account the legend that the puppy was a handsome young Gypsy, famous for its beauty, who fell in love with a sculptor. Seems to be that the young not responded to this love, or nor to the invitation of the artist's pose as model. One night the sculptor walked Triana when he saw some who stabbed someone. Approach recognized the victim to her beloved. To see him die, with mud that collected soil, made him a mask, so collecting the last rictus of agony of the young. With this mask made a face of a Christ which developed in sculpture is the one who is worshipped in this church. When the Christ (of expiration), was exposed all the people immediately recognized the young Gypsy and spade continues dating in Sevilla. A good example of Sevillian Baroque.

  • An extraordinary place. A must see. A lot of world because inside lies the Virgin of the Macarena so revered by the Andalusians. This is the Virgin of Sorrows, the toreadors pray before entering the arena. Go in late afternoon. It closes at 9 pm.
