Los Venerables Hospital

Interesting
Founded in 1675, the hospice intended for aged priests (hence venerable) and designed by Leonardo de Figueroa is one of the best examples of Seville 17C Baroque. Today, it is the seat of the Focus Cultural Foundation. In the church, you will find frescoes by Valdés Leal and his son Lucas Valdés, attractive sculptures by Pedro Roldán, the strange balustrade of the sacristy, and the superb main staircase. And that's not all.
