it is worth a visit but pretty much an average church if that is possible as they are all impressive. There was a wedding in process when we visited which was interesting.

Limited opening times so visit first en route to another destination to determine best time Open 8 to 11 most days The altar is breathtaking and there are several chapels with glorious icons and gilt statues

I always stay at the Hotel Becquer and this beautiful church is just around the corner. This church is the third most important church in Seville and has plenty of art. I always like to take photos in it.
