Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

San Rafael Church


This religious building has a naval structure and a very modern temple built after the Second Vatican Council. The high altar is presided over by the image of Our Lady of Solitude on a neo-baroque silver stand. This sculpture was made by Manuel Mazuecos and Juan Manuel Miñarro. The Christ of Forgiveness is situated in the side chapel. There are also images of Saint Angela of the Cross, the Archangel Saint Rafael (patron saint of the town) and Saint Judas Tadeus.

This modern church has a single nave and a pseudo-polygonal apse. The baptismal chapel holds the image of a Crucified Christ made by Sebastian Santos Calero in 1999. The high altar, created by Santiago del Campo in 1975, is presided over by a panel painting of a Crucified Christ.
