Every time we go to Seville we pass the Capilla de San Jose because it is located close to the downtown stores. We always enter this chapel because it is so very beautiful, and we always say a little prayer.

A beautiful small church, I had the luck to pass by it while the Sunday mass was being conducted. Nice experience, worth a quick visit.

We stopped at this chapel on a walking tour of Seville. Modest outside, but once inside the Baroque design and gold gilting are impressive. It probably could use a professional cleaning to brighten the gold gilt. If you like Baroque churches and find yourself visiting Granada, be sure to visit the Basilica de San Juan de Dios- really spectacular!

The Chapel of San Jose is located near the very busy streets of Sierpes and Tetuan. We always like to stop here in this small church and say a little prayer. The main retable is quite nice and gilded.

The chapel was built by the guild of carpenters between 1699 and 1766. The main nave was built by Pedro Romero and the main chapel was built by Esteban Paredes. Today the church is run by the Franciscan Order and is found in a very busy part of the city. The church is small and has a rectangular shape with... More

The Capilla of San Jose is a small Baroque jewel. It has a Baroque altarpiece and the chapel has the images of Santa Justa and Santa Rufina. The facade is small but quite elegant.

Just off the main shopping street Sierpes, but just pop in for a view if open. It is small and the painted area is dilapidated, but the ornate altar area is striking for such a small chapel. 5 minutes just to peek in.

You'll be hard pressed to find a more "lavish" altar. If the folks on 'The Only Way Is Essex' decorated churches this is what they'd look like.

The Church of San Jose is quite small but it is a good example of the Baroque style in Seville. The church is full of art. The church was started in 1699 by the architect Pedro Romero and finished in 1766. The main altar was the work of Cayetano de Acosta and with sculptures made by Pedro Duque Cornejo. The... More
