Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Nuestra Señora del Carmen Chapel


The chapel was once known as San Ginés. It is located on the avenue of the same name, probably being a primitive Mudejar work, to which the external walls of the main chapel, which was totally renovated in the 18th century, would have belonged. It is a small building with only one nave, divided into three sections, with a square main chapel, the chancel being roofed with a hemispherical vault and the nave with a barrel vault with lunettes and rib arches. It has a simple lintelled doorway at the end, crowned by a broken pediment, with the belfry above it. Its main altarpiece has a central niche with a carving of the Virgin after whom the chapel is named, a modern piece of sculpture.
