An amazing facility to care for the sick and aging priests. Anexample of advanced social welfare or just a one for the privilleged and none for the populuous? Regardless, a lovely chapel and rare art displays.

Lovely shade on a hot afternoon. A free guide is included in the modest entry price. Don't miss the art show, we nearly didn't bother but we were so glad we did...small but stunning masterpieces on show,

We visited on a Sunday and found that our tickets were free. Well worth popping on to look around the halls and the chapel at the back. I think I preferred this hospital over "Hospital de la Caridad".

This church is amazing. No crowds and a magnificently painted ceiling by Valdes Leal. Absolutely stunning in its beauty and detail. Also, there is a small art gallery with paintings from Murillo, Pachecho and of course Velazquez. I guess it just goes to show that tourists go where the other tourists are going, not necessarily to what is beautiful. Can't... More

The highlight for me is the permanent collection of about 20 art works. The lighting of some of them is unbeatable. Get there early and have them all to yourself! The painting of seventeenth century seville deserves detailed study. Spot the Giralda and cathedral but observe life as it was when the city was truly great. The courtyard and chapel... More

I dot think many tourists know or think to come here. This place is gorgeous and not over crowded. Helps you truly appreciate the art and church when people aren't constantly around you taking pictures. One of my favorite places in Sevilla for reflection and meditation. Bring your student id - cuts the price of admission in half.

If you like art and architecture, this now privately owned/funded former home for sick priests is definitely worth a visit.
