Alcalá de Guadaíra

Seville, beautiful and diverse

The purpose of the Carmen Coronada Library Marian Museum of the Convent of Santo Ángel in Seville is to showcase the great Conventual Library, which contains around 8,000 books from the 16th century to the present day. It is one of the hidden jewels of the town of Seville and was inaugurated in 2016.

The Corral del Conde, so called because it belonged to the Count-Duke of Olivares, is a very expressive building of the popular architecture of Seville, probably the most interesting and complete of all existing buildings at that time, now largely disappeared.

The Hacienda de Santa Ana, built on the site of a modest farmhouse, has the typical architecture of the Aljarafe Alto estates in the province of Seville. Located in Fuente Street, this is the most significant architectural and heritage building in Tomares. It is now the Town Hall. It also serves as the hub for Tomares’ social and cultural life.

This monumental site in Olivares was made possible by the generosity of the first Counts of Olivares, a cadet branch of the Ducal House of Medina Sidonia that settled in this area of the Aljarafe. The lands have belonged to the powerful Guzmán family since the Middle Ages.
