Located conveniently close to the canal, Capilla de los Marineros was built as a Catholic church for sailors. Though constructed in 1759, French occupation saw the church secularized--it served as a warehouse, Anglican church, and theater before being converted back to its original purpose in 1953. Step inside the small, white, Baroque building to admire its ornate gilded altar. The dazzling structure features an image of Virgen de la Esperanza, the patron saint of Triana sailors and an important part of the city's Semama Santa celebrations.

This was the first Triana church we visited on our cycling tour of Seville. Set in a peaceful street parallel to the river, the Chapel of the Sailors has a beautiful alterpiece. Well worth a visit. more »
A wonderful place in Seville that we accidentally got caught up in the middle of a procession in May that was dedicated to our Lady. Very moving experience.
2 euro contribution to the entrance. The aim is the restoration of the works contained in the Church. In return I had the material to appreciate what I was looking at. Absolutely well spent. A beautiful church with a small museum attached.
