In Seville, a medieval church was built on top of a former caliphal mosque (formerly a Roman basilica), which today still has its courtyard with orange trees (Patio de los Naranjos). The wide façade of the College Church of El Divino Salvador, its slender columns and the set of chapels and altarpieces that decorate its interior introduce us into an incomparable frame to know the Sevillian baroque world.
The main altarpiece and the Sacramental Chapel stand out, as well as the images of Our Father Jesus of the Passion and Saint Christopher by Juan Martinez Montañez and the Holy Christ of Love by Juan de Mesa from Cordoba. However, its 18th century organ and its sacristies, both the upper and lower ones, are also noteworthy.
The courtyard of the orange trees, of Caliphate origin, can be accessed from the Plaza del Salvador or from Cordoba street. The bell tower can be seen from there, as well as remains of the Roman and Visigoth period such as arches and columns. In the courtyard there is access to the funeral chapel of the Pineda family from the 14th century, made in Mudejar Gothic style, and in the Crypt are buried members of the Spanish Royal family, under the Bourbon Orleans branch.
