Del Salvador Church - Seville


The del Salvador church was built between 1674 and 1712 on the site of the former Great Omeyyade Mosque. The base of its minaret can still be seen, together with the ablution courtyard, which has been turned into a charming patio featuring orange trees, columns and fountains. The church boasts a majestuous and elegant brick façade with carved stone reliefs and its bell-tower was designed by Leonardo de Figueroa. The interior is extremely spacious and enabled substantial altarpieces to be built without engulfing the visitor. Among the most famous artists represented here are Jose de Mesa, Cayetano de Acosta, who designed the ""Transfiguration of Christ"" and the door to the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, and Juan Martinez Montanes, who created the altarpiece depicting the ""The Passion of Christ"".
