Very nice church with great things to see around, we went in May and it was roasting hot so could not go around the entire place, but definitely worth the visit. Avoid the ladies who stand outside the church and try to con you with their talks of being able to read your hand.

A small church but with a great deal of importance for the Seville people. It's very beautiful and well decorated. Not a lot of sunlight and a bit hot inside, but with a lot of interesting points to see.

Housing the Virgin of Esperanza de Macarena, this chapel, I would say can rival the city's cathedral. Everything in the chapel was splendid, the detailed paintings on the ceiling to the matching colours overall, and last but not least the beauty of the Virgin Idol statue with Her crystal teardrop on her cheek. Can't be described with just words, you... More

This church is must see, the outside bares no resemblance to what is inside, absolutely glitters and shines, take photos of this place, excellent on a hot day!

If you like Baroque, you'll love this basilica--no longer the main church, but more of a wedding/special events venue. The decoration is unbelievable. Best hint: buy the combined ticket to the Basilica and the Cathedral here and save standing in line at the latter. The Spaniards, unlike some European countries to provide discounts to tourists over 65, but you have... More

Macarena is the Queen of Seville and when you visit her home you have the opportunity to enjoy the architecture of this building and also you could find peace in this place no matter what if you are or not Catholic so if you are please go. Before your visit check the schedule to be sure that is going to... More

After paying everywhere you visit, it's nice to see a place where doesn't charge for admission. The basilica is very nice and the statue of Our lady of hope Macarena is beautiful! One of the best thing I saw in Sevilla. I also liked the neighborhood a a lot. It has more authentic, local feel to it.

It is right near the old Wall of the city. Very impressive. The hop on and off bus stops here and is worth an hour of your time to wander around this area.

You can walk to it from the Centre bur the C3 goes by the door. All bus trips are currently E1.40 per person flat rate charge. The C3 has a circular route around the Tourist Areas. . Would suggest this as a must see instead of the Cathedral
