Private Visit of the Hospital de los Venerables
Make your reservation
We will discover a Baroque jewel located in the Santa Cruz quarter of Seville, the Hospital de los Venerables, founded by Justino de Neves for retired and sick canons in the 17th century.
Our tour begins with a short guided walk through the Barrio de Santa Cruz that will take us to its most famous monument.
To begin with, we will enter its beautiful halt and the watchman’s house which gives direct access to the beautiful cloister and with it to the central work of the hospital which is the Church of Los Venerables, where you can enjoy the paintings that decorate its walls dedicated to San Fernando and made by the painter Valdés Leal and his son Lucas Valdés, all completed with the beautiful sculptural works of Martínez Montañes and Pedro Roldán, remembered as the greatest baroque image makers of Seville.
After the visit to the temple, we will walk through the courtyard of Doña Elvira, which inspired José Zorilla to create Don Juan Tenorio.
After our journey through Spanish literature, we will visit the Velázquez Centre where we will be able to enjoy great works of art from the 17th century that tell the story of the religiousness experienced in the city during the Baroque period, portrayed by artists such as Velázquez, Murillo, Zurbarán and Pacheco.
Finally, we will go up a wonderful staircase that maintains an exceptional Mudejar coffered ceiling to go to the baroque library and the centre of contemporary painting, which will end our journey through time in this magnificent enclave.
