Seville enchants

The Santísimo Cristo de la Cárcel Chapel, located in the Plaza Principal, and currently renamed as Antonio Mairena, was directly communicated with the town’s former prison from which it took its name.

This late 18th-century Chapel was built to honour the now-lost image of a Crucified Christ, revered here in the mid-17th century according to available records.

The Palace of the Counts of Castellar, which holds the Town Hall, was built between the 15th and 16th centuries. However, it was reduced to rubble in 1977.

This is an ancient Christian chapel that may have originally been an Arab mosque of which the mihrab would have been preserved. It has undergone restoration work since it ceased to be used as a prison. 

It was located on Sierpes street and its origin dates back to the Repartition of Seville after the Reconquest of the Town by Ferdinand III in the 13th century. Where the current Entrecárceles tavern is located, there were cells where Miguel de Cervantes spent some time.

El Coronil’s Town Hall is located in the town’s geographical centre. 

The Padre Martín Recio Archaeological Museum in Estepa (Seville) is located in what was the Estepa’s prison. The Padre Martín Recio Archaeological Museum houses objects found across the region dating from the Palaeolithic to the Middle Ages.
