This church is next to the "Hospital de la caridad" and it has very nice paintings of the greatest Sevillan Master Murillo, and also of Master Juan de Valdes Leal. The style in the church is BAROC.

The medium size courtyard that you enter first has art from the family of the developer Don Miguel Manara, Off to one end of the courtyard is Manara's former office with his original desk still present in the office.

Formerly a charity hospital and reportedly funded by the main who was the likely inspiration for Don Juan, this attraction features a gorgeously decorated chapel that is second to none. If you have time after visiting the Alcazar and the Cathedral, you will want to visit this attraction.

This still functioning hospital (an elder-serving hospice now, I think) has a very beautiful chapel and altarpiece, and an interesting history. An audio guide is included in the entry price (which was a bit high, but consider it a donation). It's a place you could see in a few minutes, but the audio guide will drone on and on in... More

When one first enters the Hospital de la Caridad, one is amazed at seeing the very symmetrical patio, with beautiful architecture. Then one enters the chapel, which has art that is very impressive and is very important. This is one of my favorite chapels in Seville.

Gorgeous 17th Century paintings by Murillo & others in original locations; this impressive church is part of an still-active 'Charity Hospital/Hospice' from 1647, today housing 70-100 needy men. Its sculpture and art are masterpieces...well worth a visit. NOTE: ask for the English recorded guide when paying your 5 Euro 'donation'; it sometimes isn't offered automatically ;)

Yet another baroque church although internal courtyards are pretty. If short of time miss out on this…the fee to be treated as a donation because not really worth it !

Other than being a pretty building near the water, there is really nothing to see here. It appears that the building is currently used as a retirement home for the elder. The chapel is neat though, but not worth the entrance fee.

The chapel has a wonderful altarpiece that was created by Bernardo Simon de Pineda. It shows the Burial of Christ, a sculpture by Pedro Roldan. The chapel is decorated by many works of Valdes Leal. There are two courtyards that are quite beautiful too.

Normally,I am reluctant to write negative reviews about cultural institutions.Needless to say,I thought that the 5 Euro price of admission was excessive.There were 2 fine paintings by Juan Valdes Leal and a few fine paintings by Bartolome Murillo at this institution.The audioguide in English did not operate properly and the staff failed to solve this problem to my satisfaction.The Museum...
