Semana Santa Estepa

Seville enchants

The Chapel of La Safa was built in 1983. It is a single-nave building with a half-barrel vault held up by ribbed arches supported by pilasters. The altarpiece, the arms of lateral lamps, the stained-glass windows and the half-height tiling of the old Seville factory of Ramos Rejano are currently preserved.

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.

Although its official name is Our Lady of Candelaria Convent, it has also been known as San Francisco or Victoria convent. It was founded on 1 February 1555 by Juan Téllez Girón, 4th Count of Ureña.    

The Church of Nuestra Señora de las Huertas is located in the centre of the town of La Puebla de los Infantes, a few minutes from the Castle of La Puebla de los Infantes.

The Convent of the Barefoot Mercedarians of Corpus Christi with its Conventual Church was built between 1604 and 1617 by Diego Pérez Alcaraz to house a community of Mercedarian friars. 

The Parish Church of Santiago el Mayor was built in the 17th century and underwent several renovations during the 18th century.

The building has a single nave, divided into six sections, and a semi-circular apse. The roofs are barrel vaults with lunettes between rib arches, with a hemispherical vault on a pendentive in the chancel and a quarter sphere vault in the main chapel.
