The virgin of the macarena

Excellent

If there is a fellowship with tradition and many faithful in Seville, it is that of Esperanza Macarena and their Basilica, in the neighbourhood of the same name, it’s a must visit.

The basilica is a modern construction and its main interest is the carving of the Virgin Mary it houses in its interior.

It really is beautiful, and its neo baroque altar is a true marvel. Inside the church there is also a museum displaying the jewels of the Virgin Mary and their Holy Week procession.

Temple to visit in seville:

One of the temples which, despite not being in a predominantly tourist area, is a must visit in Seville is the Basilica of the Macarena, even more so during Easter.

It is located in La Macarena neighbourhood, next to the walls and the Puerta de la Macarena. Its exterior does not say much, its steeple like a triumphal arch, is neo-baroque style and was built between 1936 and 1941 by the architect Gómez Millán. It has a single nave with four side chapels. It was proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Paul VI in 1966, and is see to the royal, illustrious and fervent brotherhood and confraternity of Nazarenes home to the sculptures of: Nuestra Señora del Santo Rosario (Our Lady of the Holy Rosary), Nuestro Padre Jesús de la Sentencia (Our Father Jesus of judgment) and the María Santísima de la Esperanza Macarena Coronada (Crowned Blessed Virgin Mary of La Esperanza Macarena), popularly known as the "fellowship of La Esperanza Macarena."

The importance of this church is on the inside, for its sculptures, especially the Blessed Virgin Mary of La Esperanza Macarena (seventeenth century), so venerated by all from Seville, which presides on the main altar.
