A very impressive interior showing great examples of craftsmanship. Lovely ceilings, ornate floats (run up to Holy Week) and detailed statues. A far superior interior than Serville Cathedral.

All scrubbed up it looked wonderful. You could mistake it for a cathedral with its art and architecture. And size.

Those used to English and German cathedrals will have their visual senses bombarded with the extraordinary decoration in this church. Apart from the floor and the wall under the organ, I couldn't detect a flat surface anywhere! Whatever C21st misgivings one has about the wealth of the church treasures, one has to realise that all the artistic work in this... More

Gorgeous church in an overblown Baroque style. Tons of gold everywhere and exquisite statues. Very detailed audio guide with lots of information. Free entrance for us as we had already paid to go into the Cathedral (it's a joint ticket). Extremely helpful staff especially Jesus the guard, who helped us into the building thorough the ramped entrance which is situated... More

Though one can get tired of Cathedrals, this one and the main Cathedral in Seville are worth the visit. The restoration was just complete when we visited in October so everything inside was glistening. You can buy your ticket here and use it in the main Cathedral later without waiting in line.

Entering this building it is like entering a different world. This magnificent church is decorated with an overwhelming richness of baroque altars, statues and carvings. It is difficult to imagine what it all means, but easy to appreciate the amount of effort and dedication that drove those who built it.

The most important church in Seville is the Cathedral. The second most important church is the Church of El Salvador. The main chapel and the side chapels are very beautiful, all of them having a Baroque design. I took photos of everything and wrote down the names of the reredos in my notebook so that I would not forget them.... More

Entry to the Cathedral also pays for entry to this church of San Salvador. Whilst the cathedral is all about everything on a HUGE scale and is most impressive San Salvador is also stunning. It is beautiful and a fantastic example of baroque church decoration. It also has some small round windows that look modern (very bright coloured geometric shapes)... More

We visited this church almost by accident - our City sightseeing bus tickets allowed us free entry! But to be honest I'd have happily paid the €8 entry! I can't begin to describe the interior of this church!! Even if you are not into churches, this is the most amazing place, with the biggest most ornate, over the top altar... More

I don't go to church. Ever. But this place blew my mind. We put the map away and wandered the streets one day only to stumble across this church, it was a few Euro to go inside and holy cow, what a site. Amazing at how much work goes into a place where so little people can acutally attend mass.
