Description of Convents route in Seville

BOOK
Sevilla Spain
A popular saying has it that only Rome has more convents than Seville,where generations of nuns have led secluded lives of prayer and meditation,hidden from the eyes of the world outside behind high walls. This intriguing two-hour walking tour visits two famous convents,allowing you discover their secrets.

Begin with a visit to the Convent of Santa Paula,a vast complex dating from 1483,which contains elements of Gothic,Mudejar and Renaissance styles although the main altarpiece is Baroque. You will have time to explore the peaceful cloisters where time seems to have stood still.

Continue to the imposing 16th century convent of La Madre de Dios,which is located in the former Jewish district of San Bartolome. It boasts a magnificent main gate,a charmingly simple church and is renowned for its choir. We will also visit the cloisters and the old vegetable gardens.

Due to the fact that the convents are often closed due to the nuns' spiritual exercises,there may instead be a visit the Capuchin Convent of Santa Rosalia,which dates from the early 18th century. It is a particular object of devotion among locals due to its ceremony of the Dormition of the Virgin every August,attracting thousands of the faithful.

Meeting point: Corner of Menendez Pelayo and Santa María la Blanca.
Start time:11.30am
