It is a very interesting church. the Macarena is black. it is though a resemblance with the Madonna near Barcelona. You should visit it to understand the true spirit of the Spanish people. The architectural style is a little different from other churches from Seville.

We asked for horse drawn carriage to take us there..which was something different and off the standard route...but we enjoyed it and it is well worth the trip to see the church. We did misjudge the times slightly and got there about 5pm on Sunday evening..so it was very quiet!

The basilica is for sure interesting to see. Before getting there, make sure the place is open. In summer, it is open in the morning and in the evening (starting from 5pm). Therefore, don't go there early afternoon. The area is mostly in a siesta mode.

We were staying in Seville for a few month and had heard about the statue with the tears and wanted to see her. We went to the last Mass on Saturday night and even though it was in Spanish we found the Priest quite animated and wished we could have understood him. The elaborate statue of the Macarena with her... More

This didn't look much from the outside and it's very small but was very ornate. We were within walking distance so well worth the visit.

The church is exquisite, stunningly decorated inside. It's a must see in Madrid. There's no fee to go in and it's allowed to go in the little room behind Mary's statue during certain hours.

We were staying just down the road form the basilica, this that we could get inside whenever it was open. Saturdays in summer are perhaps not the best time to visit as it is a very popular venue for weddings and once the party have gone in the doors are closed. We went in for a service which was very...

Lovely church and interesting museum next door. I've used the red tourist hop on hop off bus. And so got 50% discount off out entrance ticket.

This church is quite recent from 1949 and is quite small compared to other churches in town. Its main altar is increadibly decorated and the adorned madona is very impressive. The church is free to visit but the museum has a fee but you should not miss it: "tesoro de Macarena". The main attraction are the different "pasos" exposed and... More
