I was pulled in by the story of Don Jaun and his attempts at redemption. What I found was a little less fantastical than I had hoped for. Worth the 5Eu in my opinion, but probably not for everyone.

Enjoyed looking round this old hospital with its amazing courtyard and interesting history of priests being looked after by noblemen and others.

Cute little gallery in a gorgeous building with an interesting history. Audio guide came with the admission and was great at guiding through. Highlight was the architecture and little chapel, actual artwork was interesting but nothing to write home about.

Rent and audio guide and pass through the colonial architecture of this old hospital and its small chapel and interesting collection. A must-see for anyone interested in Sevilla's history!

The most remarkable part of the building, a former hospital / retirement home for destitute priests, is undoubtedly the splendid baroque church, magnificently restored to its past glory. The sacristy which leads off from the church houses a small presentation of church vessels (chalices, phials,...) and crucifixes. Its trompe-l'oeil ceiling is said to be an outstanding example of the art.... More

It is a small building and quite simple. There is one room with some historic paintings, but for us, the main highlight was the beautiful architecture of this building - it is just very beautiful. The garden is small and not much to see there. Go and see this if you are interested in architecture. I would say 40-45 minutes... More

This place is fairly hidden and we found it by mistake. The church is really amazing and worth a visit. The audioguide nicely explains the history of the building and the church. The Velazquez exhibition was also really nice.

Beautiful to visit, calm but not WoW. Audioguide gives you a bit of extra info but don't visit this if you don't have much time. There are nicer places to go to.

A lovely building, with many interesting architectural features plus a beautiful sunken garden with a water feature. The highlight for me, as seeing the Velazquez paintings, well worth seeing and so ahead of this time. It is free entry on a Sunday afternoon (2-6pm), but unfortunately did not get to go inside the chapel as it was closed.
