Seville enchants

The clearly regionalist-style Coliseum is one of the best buildings in this trend and is part of the set of urban operations that were carried out in Seville from 1911 onwards on the occasion of the 1929 Ibero-American Exhibition.

This is the oldest church in Sanlúcar. It is located at one end of the town, in front of the escarpment overlooking the River Guadiamar, and its imposing structure can be seen from a long way off. Architecturally, it stands out for its gabled roofs that contrast with the crenellated Gothic sanctuary, the most striking feature being the free-standing tower topped by a spire.

Toledillo Castle is a Muslim defensive construction. R. Fernández González chronologically places this fortress in the Umayyad emirate, and it would continue to be expanded during the Caliphate period. It was rebuilt in the eleventh and twelfth centuries in the face of the Christian thrust from the north. 

Peñaflor Castle is a defensive construction from the late Middle Ages. The existing remains date back to the Muslim and Christian periods (it is listed as a 12th-century Almohad construction). However, the site’s potential and the surface ceramics found appear to suggest the existence of a fortified building from earlier times.

The Franciscan monastery of Corpus Christi founded by Juan Téllez Girón was built in 1541 and is still largely preserved today.

The St John Baptist Church must have been founded after the Christians conquered Marchena. It is likely linked to the presence of the Order of St John, first documented in the 13th century. Only the chapel under the tower remains from that original Church.

The Cortijo de Gambogaz is a large country house located close to the banks of the River Guadalquivir.
