We suggest you to visit with us Triana neighborhood, a key place in order to discover the Sevillan Holy Week. You could enter in the Iglesia del Patrocinio (Patrocinio Church) and see the Cristo del Cachorro, the most venerated crucified Christ of Seville.
In addition, you are going to visit the Capilla de la Estrella (Estrella’s Chapel), from where the procession of the Virgen de la Estrella, called “the Valiant”, starts. Of course, you could enter in the Capilla de los Marineros (the Sailors’ Chapel), where the Cristo de las Tres Caídas and the Esperanza de Triana, the most famous and worshipful statues of the neighborhood, are located.
In order to embellish the tour, we are going to tell you stories and legends that help you to discover the peculiarities of Triana, legendary suburb of Seville and birthplace of well-known bullfighters, singers and dancers (cantaores and folclóricas); cradle of Flamenco, and place from where set out the Fleets of India.
Old Town Temples
Another fascinating proposal is to visit the ancient and historic centre of Seville, walking through its narrow streets. The visit to the Basilica de la Macarena (Macarena Church) can’t be missed. In fact, in this temple thousand of Sevillans enter in order to pray to the famous Virgen de la Esperanza, populary known as “la Macarena”.
From there we could reach the Iglesia de los Gitanos (Gipsys’ Church), strolling close to Mudejar churches and old city wall remains. Inside the temple some remains of the Duchess Doña Cayetana de Alba were placed close to her loved Jesús de la Salud, better known in Seville as the Cristo de los Gitanos (Gipsys’ Christ). Clearly, during this route it’s essential the visit to the Basilica del Gran Poder, in which the homonymous Christ, also called “Señor de Sevilla” (The Lord of Seville), resides. On our way to the temple, we are going to discover important squares like the Alameda de Hércules or Plaza de San Pedro, passing close to historical places and palaces, like the Palacio de Dueñas.
