“Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were walking by this church, and we heard some music far away. We ran into the lights where the music was, and we saw a whole spectacle dedicated to the Virgin of Macarena, which blew our minds away. The church was open, and the Virgin was being carried into it in a very beautiful way.

“a must in Seville”

Visit especially during Semana Santa. On Holy Sunday you can enter the basilica for free to see the "pasos" up close.

“Stunning Little Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

For me this little hidden gem beats the cathedral hands down, The carvings and artwork are amazing and the size of the church gives it a lovely energy and it is free. Tip make sure you look up the opening times.

“Fantastically ornate Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

but in a run down area. We walked here by the side of the old walls and arrived at the end of a funeral service. We had a coffee across the road from the Basilica and were approached by a number of beggars. When we finished our coffees we went into the Basilica and agreed it was worth the visit. Stunning decoration and the Madonna is a work of art.
