Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Nuestra Señora del Rosario Church


Reconstructed in 1938, the church is home to paintings and images from the 17th century and 18th century, transferred here from the now-extinct La Victoria Convent in Estepa, including the image of the patron saint of the town. 

The church has three naves separated by pillars and a chapel attached to the right side. Several modern images are revered inside, the exception being a bust of an 18th century Virgin Mary on the high altar. The altarpiece consists of a bench, a niche between estipites and finish. It is decorated with thistles in the style of the second third of the 18th century.

The Sacristy holds several interesting paintings, including a Crucified Christ (c. 1700) and a San Diego de Alcalá, from the first half of the 17th century. The temple also boasts gold and silverwork from the 18th and 19th centuries.
