We were given free entry as part of our cathedral visit, weren't sure whether to visit or not, but then we were in the area & decided to thank goodness. This church has outstanding art work & history, definitely a must see.

It's gorgeous and the detail is impeccable. Lovely that it's free if you've paid for the Cathedral (5ish minutes away by foot). The audio guide is interesting, but unnecessary if you're good just reading the descriptions.

This church is a small version of the cathedral. The altars are of the rococo style and very big. If you like visiting churches it is a must go. The ticket for the cathedral will also let you visit this church.

When you visit the Cathedral of Seville you also pay entrance to this church. It's worth seeing because of the many examples of Jesus and Mary seen as wealthy people. At least two times Jesus' cross is decorated with gold or silver, and he is dressed quite fashionable. Funny how artists reads the holy book in different ways.

I'm not religious but thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The soft airy music in the background added to the light, airy feeling of the interior, making it a peaceful, soothing place as soon as you walk in. I was there mid-afternoon and wasn't expecting to stay too long. However, once I was inside, the peaceful feeling made me slow down, and... More

Don't miss this beautifully resorted church, not far from the Cathedral. Just take a seat and absorb the amazing alterpiece over the main altar. Such wonderful workmanship. Buy a ticket for the Cathedral here to save queuing.

This is a truly awe-inspiring church. I felt much more moved here than in the Cathedral. The statutory is incredible and everywhere you look there is something to marvel at. Entrance is basically free if you go the same day as the Cathedral and you won't be disappointed.

The church has a pretty impressive scale of carved scenes throughout. The really nice thing is that if you get the combo ticket here you can skip the line at the cathedral.

As the previous reviewer has said, the cathedral often has long lines of people waiting to get tickets, save yourself the hassle and vist here first, you can then enter the cathedral without the wait. We spent longer than we thought in here, it really is a hidden gem and well worth four euros entry.

Doesn't look much from the outside but what a wow when you get inside. Also tickets for this also get you into the Cathedral jump the Queue and as there is no queue here and long ones at the cathedral, it pays to go here first. Tickets are good for 2 days so you can go to one one day... More
