Omnium Sanctorum Church

This church combines the Islamic building tradition with the Gothic art provided by the Christian conquerors who came from Castile. The main façade dates back to the second half of the 13th century, with an exceptional stone doorway made up of a pointed arch with archivolts and battens. On the right, attached to the Parish Temple, it must be noted the Almohad minaret tower of the old Mosque, on which the church was built, later enlarged to incorporate the body of bells and topped by a tiled spire. Its decoration with sebka stones, similar to those of the Giralda, stands out.

The church has a square floor plan, consisting of three naves with five sections each. This temple is the headquarters of the brotherhood known as Brotherhood of Los Javieres, which holds a procession on Easter Tuesday during Seville's Holy Week.

It has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest.
