Seville enchants

Temple completed in the 18th century. Between the 17th and 19th centuries it was the church of the Convent of the Holy Spirit of the Clergy Minor. Today, its characteristic and slender belfry, two bodies high and located on the façade, is one of the most unique architectural elements of the church and the street where it is located.

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.

On entering the district of Matarredonda we can see a beautiful typical Andalusian style church, which exudes all the spirituality of the old pilgrim churches. 

The church belongs to the parish of Marinaleda and is dedicated to the Virgen de la Paz, a Virgin who is the object of great devotion in the province of Seville.

The church was built in the 18th century. It contains images and canvases from the 17th and 18th centuries. 

The church has a Latin cross floor plan with three naves in three sections, a transept, a chancel and chapels on either side. The naves are separated by semicircular arches supported by white limestone Tuscan columns.

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.

The construction of the chapel began around 1732. By 1746 it had been roofed and blessed and masses were celebrated there, and it was finally completed in 1749 with the addition of a belfry with two bells, formerly known in the town as La Gorda (Fat Lady) and La Chica (Little Girl). The construction of the chapel was financed by donations from the inhabitants of Herrera.

This is an early 15th century Gothic-Mudejar church with a rectangular floor plan and a polygonal apse reinforced by buttresses.

It has three naves separated by pointed arches supported by columns, the body of the church having a gabled wooden roof over the central nave and a single pitch on the sides, while the sanctuary has a ribbed Gothic vault.
