Seville, beautiful and diverse

In 1731, a group of boys would walk through the streets singing the rosary “more for childish entertainment than true devotion”. Gradually, more people joined them until the Confraternity of the Servites was founded. The Church of Our Lady of Sorrows is the architectural gem of the Confraternity.

The chapel is a building of Mudejar origin. Built in the 15th century, it is Mudejar in style and has a single nave. Its interior is a beautiful example of popular Mudejar architecture with a characteristic wooden roof with an image of San Diego, built by Castillo Lastrucci in the 20th century. The end façade is from the first quarter of the 16th century.

The Nuestra Señora de la Victoria Parish Church was initially the church of the Convent of the Minim Friars of St Francis of Paola. 

On entering the district of Matarredonda we can see a beautiful typical Andalusian style church, which exudes all the spirituality of the old pilgrim churches. 

The church belongs to the parish of Marinaleda and is dedicated to the Virgen de la Paz, a Virgin who is the object of great devotion in the province of Seville.

 This Mudejar-style Parish Church was renovated in the late 18th century and the mid-20th century. It is located in the centre of the town, very close to the castle.

The Church owes its name to the town’s patron saint, Saint Martha. 

This is a baroque style church built in two stages: in the 17th century, the sanctuary and the transept, and in the 18th century the three naves. It has an altarpiece with 18th century canvases and images, including the images of Jesus the Nazarene, Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza, Nuestra Señora de la Mediación, the Reclining Christ and María Santísima de los Dolores Coronada.

La Puebla de Cazalla had several shrines in the 19th century. Shrines were usually built on the outskirts of towns, near the main access roads. They survived thanks to donations from the faithful and devotees of the saints to whom the shrines were dedicated.
