Alcazar of Seville Early Access with Optional Seville Cathedral

416 reviews
For a relatively crowd-free experience of the Alcázar of Seville, opt for an early-access tour. By entering the UNESCO World Heritage Site before it opens to the public, you avoid long lines and take crowd-free photos of the landmark’s gorgeous interior. Plus, visit parts of the complex that conventional tours don’t. Upgraded package includes a line-free exploration of Seville Cathedral and Giralda Tower.

Iglesia de la Caridad is a nice little chapel but exquisitely decorated. The elaborate interior is just magnificent, and includes some amazing works of art by well known painters of the past. The church is run by some charitable institution and is connected to the Hospital of the same name. It's all about charity which is for a good cause. The visit to the church wouldn't take more than a few minutes.

Hospital de la Caridad (10 Euros for two) was an unexpected gem. It's a charity hospital that was founded in 1674 and still cares for the elderly poor. The chapel is filled with works by painters such as Bartolomé Esteban Murillo and Juan de Valdés Leal, and sculptors like Pedro Roldán and Bernardo Simón de Pineda. The patio is decorated with seven tiled panels of 1700 from Holland, representing scenes of the Old and New Testament.

Tucked behind the Maestranza opera house in Sevilla, this small chapel wears its Spanish Baroque interior to the nth degree. The chapel is part of the complex for the Hospital de la Caridad, a charity senior-living residence for Sevillanos. The paintings, sculptures, and magnificent altar were created by the most prominent Sevillano artists of the 17th century. Experiencing this incredible art “in situ” as opposed to a museum emphasizes the direct connection of the artwork’s theme of charity with the adjacent residences. The chapel and hospital renovations were funded by Don Miguel Mañara, a prominent figure in Sevillano commerce and society, who renounced his former life to join a monastic order. Some say that Mañara was the original “Don Juan”. Funds from Mañara’s estate continue to support the charitable mission of the hospital.

If you’re downtown, go off the beaten path just a few blocks from the cathedral and enjoy this exquisite chapel built into an old hospital with an interesting history. It takes only 30 minutes to visit, is inexpensive, and the money goes to a good cause. Worth it, just pales a little in comparison to Alcazar and the Cathedral. Cheers

Pleasant place do good charitable works but not much to see if time limited not really worth it. People still living and working there felt bit like an intruder into their lives. It is a charity so the fee helps support this good cause which is positive.
