A wonderful church. Although all churches have similar features, each one holds something unique and for me it was the baroque ceiling. Absolutely stunning. This church also contains a painting by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo to the left of the church... if I recall this is...More

A beautiful church which stands on the site of a former synagogue. The interior is very grand and the ceiling is stunning. The congregation is welcoming of visitors and the church is a hidden gem in the city.

This church was just a few yards away from my hotel but only entered it after watching a wedding taking place there. Quite striking inside with intricate and ornate carvings. This included a carving of the Giralda tower high on the ceiling.

Like any church in Seville you do need to check when it is open. This was just across the road from our accommodation and as others have noted, the small wooden, unassuming door gives no indication of the sumptuous interior. Let your eyes wander upwards...More

The façade of the this church is all that is left of the old synagogue and dates from the medieval period, but behind that is a Rococo nave with stucco work so amazing you almost forgive the "redecoration". The altar piece is good as well....More
