Fabulous art work.

The building itself is worth a visit but they also have a small gallery which has some very good paintings in. Interesting history too.

We had purchased the Seville Card and this was included on it - the chapel is simply quite beautiful with its painted ceiling and ornate freizes - we were the only people there and it was so very serene. While the Velazquez paintings were on loan to Paris there was enough other excellent art to enjoy; the audio guide is... More

Maybe the perfect museum in Seville for anyone who cannot stand for long periods of time. Sedate and dignified. Masterpiece after masterpiece you will be wowed. Easy in and out. Loved this place!!

We made this stop based solely on other TA recommendations and of course we were not disappointed. The architecture and art work are amazing as well as the story of the building

Very pleasant but I'm glad we visited on a free afternoon (Sundays). My visit might have been clouded by the super high heat of the afternoon. The chapel is absolutely beautiful and we really appreciated the fact that visitors are allowed to sit on the numerous chairs all around the courtyard (so often blocked out at historical sites), but even...

An ancien priests resting and hospital house, in the great Baroque style, built in 17th century around a patio.After canonization of King Fernando, they builded a small church, that does function of cultural center, and has nice fresco's. For Christmas time, we saw a large landscape around the Birth of Christ, together with lots of Cribs from the whole world.... More

This is a lovely place to take a short visit with audio guide. The church and side chapels are beautiful and the art collection is stunning. Would have been nice to see into the old hospital rooms, but they are offices now. Lovely cool courtyard to sit in.

Lovely building. It is July 2015 and all of the Velazquez paintings are in Paris they tell me. However, some nice paintings from other Spanish Paintings and a very professional and well produced audio guide. My visit was short as I went with three children. Lovely courtyard and actually cool place to sit down and escape the heat. Gorgeous tile!

This building was originally built as a hospital and hospice for old priests after the plague. It has a beautiful baroque chapel within. Also houses some fantastic works of art in a little museum. Tour, with audio guide is 5€/person. Totally worth it!

After the dark, magnificent displays of wealth, power and privilege in the Cathedral, this was a light and spiritual sanctuary. Don't miss the trompe l'oeuil ceiling in the room opposite the pulpit or the 3 carved coral pieces behind glass. On a practical note, the toilets were worthy of a 5 star rating with fresh flowers and natural light.
