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.

This fine church is situated in a complex which provides social and medical care to some of Seville's elderly poor. Its founder endowed it with some very fine art works including some beautiful canvases by Murillo and some very striking but shocking works byJuan de Valdes Leal showing death.

Not much to see, church under work, small and poorly decorated garden. We went there because it was included with Sevilla Card but would not recommend.

This was built by a very rich man in the 19th century. He devoted his life to helping the sick and the poor after his wife died. the chapel has the most amazing altar area and paintings.

The Hospital de la Caridad is a beautiful place to visit. The facade is beautiful, and the patio is also very good to see and photograph. Inside the chapel one can see large paintings that are quite beautiful. The cupola is impressive and the main altarpiece is also very impressive.

near the river and the theatre maestranza, i like very much the 2 paintings by Valdes Leal about vanity. in the main church. when you pass by the convent at sunset, from the street , the colours are wonderful , the white front turns into orange and red with blue velvet sky on background. perfect lighting at night
