Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Nuestra Señora de Los Remedios Chapel


The Chapel is located opposite the Parish Church, in the namesake square. It formerly housed the Confraternity of Charity, who tended to the sick. 

Its origin is difficult to determine due to the various renovations carried out. The oldest data available are from the eighteenth century, although its origin is undoubtedly earlier. A charity hospital and a shelter were built next to the Chapel. 

The rectangular Chapel has a single nave covered with a plaster-coffered ceiling, while the presbytery has a groin vault. It also has a bell gable with a bell and a wrought-iron weathervane. An 18th-century polychrome tile of Our Lady of Remedies is affixed to the door.

The high altar is presided over by an image of Our Lady of Remedies, patron saint of the town since 1964. Two neoclassical altarpieces in the presbytery hold the images of Saint Isidore the Farmer and the Divine Shepherdess. 
The Chapel has been closed since the early 21st century as it is in very poor condition. Given this situation, the images were transferred to the Parish Church. The building was restored in 2012 and is now open to the public.
