The 30 retired priests who would have lived here had amazing accommodation! Today the magnificent chapel hosts organ recitals. The rest of this amazing building has been restored to a very high standard and several rooms are used to exhibit art. The rooms and courtyards are perfectly sized and it must have been an amazing complex in which to see... More

Interesting place to visit, especially if you go on Sunday evening when it's free! Lovely tile work and some nice paintings of La Familia Sagrada.

Nobody would think to walk inside a hospital to see the church, but you certainly should do just that.

It is definitely a nice building with some nice architecture but what I liked most was the church. It was amazingly decorated and well worth a little pause. Entrance fee was about €5 (with audioguide) so not too pricy. Also walk around in the neighborhood, you will not be disappointed..

We were strolling in the Santa Cruz District & popped in - definitely pleased that we did. A beautiful church with every wall painted -very atmospheric. A lovely courtyard to sit & catch up on the audio guide . The Art Gallery has a limited number of painting but most are of very good quality.A nice but not over powering... More

You could easily walk past this unassuming residence and not know there's anything inside. But it's well worth hunting down. A wonderful old hospice, with a breathtaking chapel and a nice little sampling of paintings from Seville's golden age. The audio guide included with admission adds a lot of value for the visitor.

You'd never know this beautiful courtyard and building are beyond the high walls. This is a lovely quiet place to visit, and includes an exhibition of excellent paintings including Velasques

The entrance charge was 5.50 Euros. This, in our view, gets you three good Velazquez paintings and an arresting Murillo portrait. The rest is of considerably lesser interest, especially the upstairs gallery around the courtyard. The Velazquez paintings, however, are interesting. We found the portrait of Santa Rufina, supposedly based on one of the artist's daughters, particularly engaging. We did... More

There is a beautiful courtyard, where a quiet mood is broken only by the soft sound of water in the central fountain. You take a seat and listen to the informative commentary on the appliances provided. Next you enter an absolutely magnificent church .Its interior is nothing short of stunning. The commentary is again very informative. This really is one... More

This is an old house and gallery dedicated to Velasquez. There are not many works but the quality is good, and especially good value on Sunday afternoon when it is free. The house, which was a hospital, gives some insight to the interior that hides behind the street facade of Seville houses.
