Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

San Benito Church


The building dates from the late 16th and early 17th centuries. It is currently privately owned and is being restored to be used as an apartment building. Of Gothic-Mudejar origin, it has a single nave, divided into four sections by pointed transverse arches, the apse being made up of two sections, a rectangular one roofed with a coffered vault and a semicircular one with a ribbed vault. Outside, its walls are supported by very thick buttresses, with a simple Renaissance doorway on the left side and a curious triangular tower for which it has been declared a Monument of Artistic Interest.
