This monument is dedicated to a bullfighter from Villamanrique de la Condesa. The legend on the monument reads “To the famous bullfighter Pascual Márquez 1914-1941, his grateful town, Villamanrique. 1983”. It is located in the street where he was born that bears his name.
This monument in memory of arguably the most celebrated flamenco singer in history stands in the urban centre of Utrera. He elevated the “cante jondo” to the category of art. Utrera is considered one of the cradles of flamenco. The sisters Fernanda and Bernarda are particularly worthy of note. Enrique Montoya performed worldwide and received the National Music Award.
In 1731, a group of boys would walk through the streets singing the rosary “more for childish entertainment than true devotion”. Gradually, more people joined them until the Confraternity of the Servites was founded. The Church of Our Lady of Sorrows is the architectural gem of the Confraternity.
Founded as a "Museum of Paintings" in 1835, it opened in 1841 with works from confiscated convents and monasteries, occupying the former Convent of La Merced Calzada, founded by San Pedro Nolasco after the conquest of Seville in 1248.
This temple, built in 1998, holds the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, donated by the Archbishop of Seville. This statue is the draft of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Tomares that was kept in Seville’s Cathedral.
The church was built in the last third of the 16th century. It was built with masonry and ashlars and consists of a single nave with external buttresses and a polygonal sanctuary. The main neoclassical-style altarpiece has been recomposed and features modern images, such as the Virgen de la Oliva, made by Sebastián Santos, and patron saint of the town.
Much of the cloister of the Monastery of the Incarnation has been converted into a Museum of Sacred Art, which is structured around the main cloister. The Museum consists of 4 rooms that house a significant collection of the Child Jesus, goldwork and notable sculptures.
