Écija Palacio Peñaflor

Seville enchants

This 19th-century neoclassical church was built over an earlier 14th-century temple (Shrine to Our Lady of Solitude), demolished in 1800 by the Count of Altamira. The church has a rectangular plan, a central nave and two aisles. The central nave, which is larger than the aisles, is covered with barrel vaults and the aisles with groin vaults.

The 18th-century former Barrack-Garrison and Parish House are noteworthy examples of civil architecture in Peñaflor. 

Its layout is typical of the houses at that time, with a central courtyard and two floors. The upper level has a gallery that is used to distribute the rooms.

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.

A traditional building with neoclassical influences, built in the eighteenth century. It has a Latin cross plan and a single nave covered with a dome. The high altar is presided over by the image of Our Lady of the Assumption, commonly known as the Virgen de la Aurora. 

A stately, barque-neoclassical building built in 1755 supported by robust pilasters.

This late 18th-century church is dedicated to Our Lady of Immaculate Conception. It also ecclesiastically depends on the parish of Our Lady of Pure Conception. In 1887, it was also used as a water deposit. Until the Spanish Civil War, it was used as public baths. It then served as a water supply station for irrigation purposes.

A neoclassical temple built in the fifteenth century. It has interesting decorative elements, sculptures and paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. Its origins may likely date back to a shrine to Our Lady of Consolation built here in the first half of the fifteenth century. A cluster of houses inhabited by day labourers sprang up around it.
