When you visit the Cathedral of Seville you also pay entrance to this church. It's worth seeing because of the many examples of Jesus and Mary seen as wealthy people. At least two times Jesus' cross is decorated with gold or silver, and he is dressed quite fashionable. Funny how artists reads the holy book in different ways.

I'm not religious but thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The soft airy music in the background added to the light, airy feeling of the interior, making it a peaceful, soothing place as soon as you walk in. I was there mid-afternoon and wasn't expecting to stay too long. However, once I was inside, the peaceful feeling made me slow down, and I ended up spending a couple of hours there. By then the sun had reached an angle where it began casting beautiful and colorful shadows on the statues, columns, and walls through the stained glass windows. I've seen and admired many stained glass windows in churches, but never got to see them "at work". So I sat there mesmerized by the "light show" for quite a while. A very different church experience this was.

Don't miss this beautifully resorted church, not far from the Cathedral. Just take a seat and absorb the amazing alterpiece over the main altar. Such wonderful workmanship.
Buy a ticket for the Cathedral here to save queuing.

This is a truly awe-inspiring church. I felt much more moved here than in the Cathedral. The statutory is incredible and everywhere you look there is something to marvel at. Entrance is basically free if you go the same day as the Cathedral and you won't be disappointed.

The church has a pretty impressive scale of carved scenes throughout. The really nice thing is that if you get the combo ticket here you can skip the line at the cathedral.
