Castillo de Alcalá de Guadaíra

Seville enchants

The Town Council commissioned the barracks. An inscription on the lintel over the door reveals that construction works began in 1577 during the reign of King Felipe II.

The Jesuits came to Utrera and founded a convent with a school. The Rodrigo Caro School stands now on that site. All that remains is this church, known as St Francis the New, the sacristy and the meeting room.

The Mañara Palace is a palatial house in a basically Renaissance style. The illustrious philanthropist Miguel de Mañara, promoter and benefactor of the Brotherhood and Charity Hospital, was born in the palace. It is located in the centre of the former aljama or old Jewish quarter of Seville, which included the area between the Alcazar and the vicinity of the Carmona Gate.

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.

The Palace of the Marquis de la Gomera is the most exceptional in Osuna. This 18th-century building by Juan Antonio Blanco was built circa 1770.

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

The Osuna May Fair was declared an Andalusian Festival of Tourist Interest by the Regional Ministry of Tourism, Trade and Sport in 2008. It is considered "a manifestation that helps advance the values and traditions of this municipality and of Andalusia, and promotes, develops and disseminate tourism".
