This quiet 'retreat' is nestled in a corner of tiny plaza (same name...across from Hosteria del Laurel, supposed haunt of mythical 'Don Juan'); was 17th century retirement home for priests, now a nice place to visit and contemplate those times in a setting of lovely art treasures by such artists as Valazquez, Murillo, and Zurburan. Restful, slightly off 'the beaten... More

The church altar here is breathtaking. Not a lot to see and it doesn't take long but it's well worth a visit if you enjoy church architecture.

It was opposite our hotel in the old quarter so we visited one evening after a days sightseeing. The courtyard is charming but the church is a real WOW! The ceiling is covered with painted cherubs and angels.

The name is misleading for non-Spanish speakers (like me), as this was a retreat built in the 17th century as a home for recuperating or retired priests. The exterior gives no idea of what is inside and even after you have purchased your admission ticket (I was the only person in the building/church the entire time I was there) and... More

I really didn't expect much based on the name of this place. We happened upon it after deleting it from our must see list. I am glad we didn't miss it! The courtyard was unimpressive but the sanctuary was spectacular! They also had a small exhibit of masterpieces tucked away in the corner. You don't need a lot of time... More

I know that this is not a commonly held position, but this was my favorite stop in all of Seville. We spent 5 days seeing all of the major sites and this one really surprised me. We went on a weekday morning and were accompanied by only about 20 others. The interior of the church was small and intimate and... More

This museum is known for its art but I have to say I preferred the architecture. The collection was very great though, but these old converted buildings are to die for...

A beautiful serene building with a church in the Santa Cruz district. You can visit this museum with an audioguide.

The best part of this visit was seeing paintings by Murillo. The staff show no interest in visitors but are happy to take your money and give no help. Ask for your audio guide which is included in the admission price and ask for a list of points of interest as they are not numbered on the premises. The only... More

This site holds a fabulous art collection in a beautiful site. The courtyards are lovely and offer blessed relief from the heat and crowds. The setting for the art is perfect. The former chapel will take your breath away.
