Castillo de Alcalá de Guadaíra

Seville enchants

Commonly known as the Chapel of Jesus the Nazarene, it was part of the Dominican convent of Saint Bartholomew, funded by Bartolomé López de Marchena. The convent, which was founded in 1542, was dedicated to the care and well-being of the body and spirit. The chapel was built in the 17th century and underwent extensive renovations in the second half of the 18th century. 

Located in the Plaza de España, the church is a Mudejar-style building with a single nave and simple exterior appearance dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. It has a Gothic doorway from 1400, renovated in 1500. On its façade the remains of a Corinthian style column can be seen.

This simple 18th century chapel is built with plastered masonry. It has a single nave roofed with a vault decorated with Baroque plasterwork.

Outside it has a brick doorway and a double belfry.

The Nuestra Señora de la Victoria Parish Church was initially the church of the Convent of the Minim Friars of St Francis of Paola. 

The church was the former convent of the Priests of the Holy Spirit. It has been argued that the community of the Holy Spirit was established in the mid-16th century. A congregation of priests operated the Home for Foundlings lived in the convent until its secularisation in the 19th century. The Sisters of the Cross have occupied the convent since 1939.

The Carmelite Order occupied the convent, donated by Juan Téllez Girón, in 1606. The construction likely began in the early 16th century, as the unfinished chancel has Gothic and Renaissance elements. The naves and portal were renovated in the 18th century. The church has three naves covered by a barrel vault and supported by pillars. Current convent of the Carmelite Fathers

Built between the 16th and 17th centuries, the church belongs to the namesake convent, founded by Blessed Beatrice of Silva for the Franciscan Conceptionists.
