SAN SEBASTIAN CHAPEL
It was built in the early 16th century in honour of the Roman martyr who protected the population from epidemics and calamities. He is the patron saint of Los Palacios and Villafranca, together with the Our Lady of the Snows. The temple was initially a chapel that was, in turn, the Church of Villafranca de las Marismas. A simple building in which the baroque statue of Saint Michael the Archangel, attributed to Pedro Roldán, stands out.

The Confraternity of La Santa y Vera Cruz, the oldest in Los Palacios and Villafranca, was founded in this chapel in 1566. 

In recent years, the temple has been restored several times to repair the roof and reinforce the structure.
