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

This church really stands out in my mind. Also it is free with your entrance ticket from the Cathedral. It is a must and in some ways it is nicer than the massive cathedral is...

One of the loveliest churches in Seville. It's not huge, but, has many wonderfully carved chapels. It also has the carved Christ figure carried in the famous Seville Easter week procession.

I went to see this church as I had free entry as part of the Hop On, Hop Off bus tour. This church is worth a visit anyway, its beautiful inside. Also, you can buy entry for this church and the Sevile cathedral together here, which saves you queuing at the Cathedral. Its also in a lovely area, nice shops... More
