4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2015

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...

The Chapel of la Caridad is beautiful and is one of the most beautiful in Seville. There are many paintings by Murillo and Valdes Leal that cover most of the surfaces in the church. These paintings are quite impressive and beautiful. Also the tile work in the two patios outside are very good and the tile came from Holland from... More

The art is well worth a look and the 5 Euro entrance helps support the good work with the elderly poor but no audio guides available so probably didnt get the full appreciation

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.
