A beatiful church with some exhibits as well. Buy the combined ticket to see El Salvador and to skip the line at the cathedral (this is a pro-tip!)

There has been some kind of church on this spot for almost 2,000 years. For the first seven centuries it was a mosque, before it became a cathedral. An attempt to replace the large medieval cathedral here in 1671 ended in spectacular failure when the new structure collapsed eight years later. The current church was built from those ruins (with...

Some stunning artistic work by sculptures, painters, designers and other craftsmen, whilst also being thought provoking and possibly controversial.

The entrance ticket to the cathedral also entitles you to visit this nearby and surprisingly opulent church, the atmosphere of which is enhanced by a recording of very appropriate classical music. Don't omit to go there!

A Lovelyn baroque church. I must confess I have never seen so much golden figures at one place. It was very impressing and stunning!

Tried to visit on Sunday afternoon before visiting the cathedral (it's a joint ticket and you miss the queues that way) but it was closed despite the website saying it opened at 14:30. We came back much later after queuing at the the cathedral and it was worth the extra walk.

The Church of El Salvador is one of my favorite churches to visit in Seville becauses it is very beautiful. There are many chapels there that I admire for their beauty and design. Also if you go there you can get a ticket that also allows you to enter the Cathedral and avoid the queue there.

Art & architecture again are unbelievable. History galore in this church. Including Christopher Columbus. The interior is unbelievable. This is a must see. There was a bit of queue (1 block) but it was only about 15 minute wait. That was with no tickets.

Spectacular altarpieces and sculpture - huge wealth in the church. You can buy a combined ticket to the church and Cathedral, which means you don't have to queue at the Cathedral in the sun (just go straight past the long ticket queue to the security desk).

Unfortunately we were not aware of the combined Cathedral/Iglesia ticket and paid Euro4 each to visit, which included an audio guide. It was well worth the cost. The church was largely reconstructed during the 17th and 18th centuries, being originally built, like so many other churches in this part of Spain, on the site of a mosque. A further major... More
