Church of the Divine Savior

The 'Iglesia Colegial del Divino Salvador', or the Church of the Divine Saviour is, after the big Cathedral of Seville the most important church in Seville. The church was built on a site where a basilica stood in Roman times and a mosque during the Moorish period.

History Church of Salvador in Seville

The mosque was demolished in 1671. Between 1674 and 1712, the baroque church was built here by Leonardo de Figueroa, during which time the church collapsed once. To prevent this from happening again, solid construction piles were placed in the current church. The church stands out because of its gilded woodcraft, a beautiful main altar and numerous frescos.

After visiting the Salvador church you can go to the cozy Salvador square for a drink or a tapa at one of the many bars.
