Highly recommended; ideally, you'll go here first (and purchase the 'combined ticket', which also covers the main Cathedral and the Giralda tower...and allows you to avoid their long lines). Really gorgeous interior areas, alters and art works...my favorites are 'The Adoration of the Shepherds' painting, and the extraordinary, life-size sculpture of 'St. Christopher Carrying Infant Jesus', which has been described...

I liked it better than the Cathedral! The Main Altar with its ceramic 3 dimensional figures are unique. Both the main and side altars are works of art. The audio guide is easy and costs 2 to 3 euros and gives you just enough information to enhance what you are seeing. It's a wow...and no crowds when I was there.... More

The church is a vivid example of the Baroco style. The icons and paintings are wonderful. It is worth a guided tour or audio tour around the church to have a clear idea of the meaning and time of all the paintings and sculptures inside.

This is a small, baroque style chapel that is over the top ornate with gold gilding on everything. Not really my style but we went just to get the ticket package that gets you into the Cathedral as well so you can skip the long line.

We decided to visit this church because it was free with our purchase of admission to the Seville Cathedral. Had we done a little more research on Trip Advisor, we would have learned that you can purchase your ticket to the Cathedral here and bypass the line there. Anyway, we were blown away by the Spanish Baroque interior elements of... More

Buy your ticket here for this church and the cathedral. You will then be able to bypass lines at the cathedral later. This church is a gem. Sit in a pew and enjoy the beauty.

So many artists contributed to the beauty of this church. There were sculptures that were outstanding, carvings incredibly delicate, but the most amazing thing - while we were there the sun was coming through the stained glass windows and casting radiant colors on many artistic features.Tons of gold everywhere and exquisite statues. Very detailed audio guide with lots of information.... More

Collegial del Salvador is slightly North of the Cathedral . It is richly ornate and full of interesting treasures.
