Seville enchants

The Royal Mint of Seville was one of the seven main mints in Castile authorised by the Catholic Monarchs. It was built in 1532 by Philip II and was the place where the gold and silver that came from the Indies was melted, and which later became frames and doubloons for the subsequent support of the European economy in the 16th century, the time of the conquerors of the New World.

Between 1634 and 1637, Francisco de Zurbarán created nine religious paintings for the San Juan Bautista Church, which today have become notable examples of the artistic style of this universally recognised painter.
