Seville is a great place for 3/4 day break with lots to see and do. Would recommend the Flamenco Museum performance even though wary beforehand. Save for people wanting to take photos rather than watch, it was a great experience.

Another beautiful church which was very clam and quiet with few visitors. The high altar was ornamental and small side chapels equally so. A good place to take a breather and reflect.

My wife and I always stay at the Hotel Becquer and this church is just around the corner and we always stop to see it because it has many beautiful chapels filled with art. It is considered one of the 3 best churches in the city.

We were staying in an apartment across the street from this church and went in one afternoon when we saw the door was open. There is no charge (although you can make a contribution) to enter and no spanish or english explanations of anything, but what a beautiful space. The walls and ceilings are covered in restored (and some unrestored)... More

If you thought Italy had churches, I think Spain has more. All the churches are very ornate. This one was very pretty.

One of central Sevilla's many beautiful, historic churches...with friendly worshipers that make even visiting tourists feel warmly welcome...though common sense should deter 'guests' to detract during masses by 'sight-seeing'...but to sit quietly and absorb the spiritual atmosphere can be inspiring...whatever one's faith/denomination :)

She is not the only weeping virgin statue but the most famous. The bullfighter's chapel has a prayer to Virgen Macarena. I understand that it is an intense experience in Easter Week when the statue is carried in the streets. There is little else worth seeing nearby.

The Church of la Magdalena is located near the Hotel Becquer, where we always stay. So my wife and I always visit the church several times to look at all the art in the church. I think it is the third most important church in Seville because of it very large art collection.
