Interesting History

An interesting history about the genesis of the hospital. The church is very beautiful. Definitely worth a stop, especially on a rainy day.

This was the worst customer experience I've ever encountered at a museum. When I paid my 10 Euro, I wasn't told their was an audio guide that should have been included.

be aware of the opening hours which are 9-1.30 on Mondays to Saturdays and then opening again in the evenings between 3-7... on sundays it closes at 1pm and then opens and closes half an hour later in the evening session. a reflection of the agony and beauty in one building.....

There is so much to learn by going to this chapel and hospital. The story of the founder Manara and the art work are worth the visit. I also enjoyed talking to the aged population that currently reside there.

Around 1650, a quarter of Seville's population died in a plague. A decade later some of the survivors, members of the Brotherhood of the Holy Charity, worked to found a hospital to care for the sick poor. These were not timid men. Their fraternity had specialized in burying criminals who were executed, which must have required them to regularly attend... More

The Chapel of the Hospital de la Caridad is very beautiful and has plenty of art. There are many paintings by Murillo and Juan de Valdes Leal. The hospital was built by Don Miguel Mañara to help poor people get hospital care.

Beautiful building and internal courtyard but my shivers run down my back when I saw the chapel, baroque altar and decorations and the very macabre paintings.

The Hospital de la Caridad is still a religious charitable institution. It has a 5 euro entrance charge and is principally organised around a nice double courtyard. The main event here is the church that displays a number of paintings by the seventeenth century Spanish painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo. Four of these were taken by General Soult, one of Napoleon's... More

The chapel inside the hospice is an absolute delight. Fantastic paintings by Murillo and Valdes Leal, The chapel's interior is stunning. This is still a working hospice for the poor and infirm.
