San Nicolás del Puerto Puente de Piedra

Sevilla enamora

The Barefoot Carmelite Convent of the Conception was founded in 1577 by Francisco Álvarez de Bohórquez and his wife, Catalina de Coria. The convent was opened in 1580.

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.

On the site now occupied by the parish church, the former Muslim fortress of the Almohad period was built, the only remaining feature of which is a small piece of wall, located next to the sanctuary of the church, which has a pointed horseshoe arch framed by an alfiz.

The San Pedro Church has a white façade and a welcoming interior. Built in 1859, it was restored in 1998 with funds from the Archbishop of Seville, Coripe Town Council and generous donations by parishioners. However, the baroque dome of the former building and the old chapel of Carmen, now the Tabernacle, still remain.

This is an 18th century chapel, built around 1716, on the site of an earlier church. It is built in a simple Sevillian baroque style with a single nave with a hemispherical dome, main altarpiece, choir-belfry and access to the sacristy and brotherhood house from the nave itself.

It has a simple two-section baroque belfry crowning the main façade (Restored in 2011).

A single-nave building with three sections and a square apse recessed behind three semi-circular arches on marble columns from the late 15th century. It was renovated in the mid-18th century.  The first two sections belong to the original temple. The first is covered by a half-barrel vault with lunettes and the second with a ribbed vault.

It was initially built in the 16th century as a Shrine to Our Lady of Grace. It was home to the Augustinian Order until they moved to the current Convent of San Agustín circa 1616. From 1670 to 1780, it was an all-girls school run by the Beatas Educandas de Santa Isabel.
