If you are looking for hidden gems - this is it. Not many visitors so you will enjoy peace and quiet. Picturesque courtyard with azulejos. Paintings on the upper gallery. The chapel has beautiful frescos and art. Definitely get an audio guide to find out more about it. A great stop when you are exploring Santa Cruz.

We stumbled across this hospital and glad we did. A beautiful building rich in stories and art. Had a little trouble knowing which way to go to keep up with the audio but didn't matter as we still heard about its history

One can wander about with just a dozen other folk just a hundred meters from the Cathedral in this old hospital for priests and now run by a Foundation. Well worth a visit and more so if you want to visit their intimate art gallery with several of the Spanish greats.

I have been writing papers on Bartolome Murillo, and to know that he was in that same building and a few of his original paintings, (four are distributed to other museums) are hanging modestly in the small sanctuary, is spine tingling. I sat in the pews for a long time drinking in the historical and biographical nature of the paintings... More

Located in the Jewish ghetto. The old hospital has quite a collection of religious art. The audio guide helped me get a better understanding of the structure itself and the art collection. Even though you can't explore the second level, don't miss going up the staircase.

I recommend visiting this old hospital, which is in the neighborhood of Santa Cruz. It is a place full of history and art, with a fabulous courtyard that is worth visiting. It was the quietest tourist spot on our visit to Seville

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!
