It was amazing to visit this important stop on our bus tour around Sevilla especially on Easter Sunday 2015 (Semana Santa). Words cannot express how beautiful it is inside to see. I highly recommend the visit if you are interested in churches.

We visited on Easter Day, lots of local people there to see the two Pasos which had been carried through the streets early on Good Friday. Beautiful small church with lovely wall paintings. Check opening times to save a wasted trip.

Beautiful little mission style church, very elaborate in the inside. Definitely must walk through if you're already in the Macarena neighbor.

We visited in Holy Week . The number of people visiting was astounding . The displays are the floats that get carried round Sevill for close on 18 hours . One must marvel at the workmanship and the faith so many have .

The Basilica de la Macarena is home to the spectacular, bejeweled statute of the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Hope (Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza). Known by locals simply as La Macarena, the beautiful Madonna statue is dressed in magnificent robes and jewels. Five teardrops run permanently down her elegant cheeks. The basilica also houses a treasury displaying rare church... More

We were on the open top bus and saw the church, a lovely place to enter and see the history of the building. Also take time to wander this whole area, full of bohemian and craft type shops and bars. A delight.

La Macarena is one of the most famous brotherhood in the very well known Semana Santa de Sevilla (Seville Easter Week). The church is very nice and it next to one of the former gate of the city. Also you can appreciate the rest of the former walls that protected Seville. Once you are inside the church you can see... More

Well used church, has a mass every evening and also popular with tourists. The Macarena is a famous figure in Seville and sits at the front of this pretty church. The church is open during the morning and evening and shut like many places in Seville during the afternoon.
