Church of San Bartolomeo - Seville

The façade of San Bartolomeo's Church is in classical style and has a distinctive sobriety. The church had a chequered history: until the 13th century, the building was a Mosque. A few years after Seville was reconquered, in 1248, Alfonso X bequeathed it to the Jewish community, who turned it into a synagogue. Following the 1391 pogrom, which led to an appalling massacre, the synagogue became a church once more. It was modernised in 1779, which explains its Neoclassical appearance, as the appeal of the Baroque had already faded.
