Stepping in off the busy street, I had no idea such a peaceful atmosphere could exist so close to the outside world. The courtyard is wonderful; silent and cool on a warm day, the upper level even more remote and peaceful. The building's original function as a rest home for the clergy must have been a complete success. The small... More

Overpriced for what it is, essentially a beautiful chapel with a couple of lovely pieces of art. But if you do the "get lost in Barrio de Santa Cruz" thing, this will inevitably be on your way at some point, and it's worth taking a look at if you don't care about throwing around a couple of Euros here and...

The Hospital de los Venerables has a very beautiful round patio that is very unique. It also has one of the most beautiful chapels in Seville, with plenty of art. Sometimes one is playing the organ in the chapel and the music is heavenly.

The Hospital de los Venerables was built to care for elderly priests in the 17th Century and is tucked away in the Barrio de Santa Cruz. There isn't a lot to see, but an audio guide is included. It is well worth a visit and is a beautiful and quiet place to visit.

Hidden not only as it is in a small plaza of the same name, but also by the name of the place itself. Of Baroque style, once in around the 17th century a retirement home for priests, now a small art treasure is kept. If you are not on a guided tour, get the audio tour, it will help understand...

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.
