Around 1650, a quarter of Seville's population died in a plague. A decade later some of the survivors, members of the Brotherhood of the Holy Charity, worked to found a hospital to care for the sick poor. These were not timid men. Their fraternity had specialized in burying criminals who were executed, which must have required them to regularly attend... More

The Chapel of the Hospital de la Caridad is very beautiful and has plenty of art. There are many paintings by Murillo and Juan de Valdes Leal. The hospital was built by Don Miguel Mañara to help poor people get hospital care.

Beautiful building and internal courtyard but my shivers run down my back when I saw the chapel, baroque altar and decorations and the very macabre paintings.

The Hospital de la Caridad is still a religious charitable institution. It has a 5 euro entrance charge and is principally organised around a nice double courtyard. The main event here is the church that displays a number of paintings by the seventeenth century Spanish painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo. Four of these were taken by General Soult, one of Napoleon's... More

The chapel inside the hospice is an absolute delight. Fantastic paintings by Murillo and Valdes Leal, The chapel's interior is stunning. This is still a working hospice for the poor and infirm.

The Hospital de la Caridad (Charity Hospital) in Seville was founded by a noble man in 1674, and still used as a hospital and cared for the aged, poor and homeless. The building has not changed much since. But the mission still stands as it has ever been. We were deeply touched.

We went to the Hospital de la Caridad to listen to a concert of music by Verdi. The building is very handsome, with a patio where the concert took place; it was in the evening, and the music could be heard very well. It was organised by the Hermandad de la Caridad and rthe funds went to charity. The building... More

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 development and purpose of this still-in-use charity hospital which cares for the poor and homeless of Sevilla is noteworthy. 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.
