A minaret bell tower.
The passage of different cultures and peoples through Seville can be appreciated in the remains of earlier buildings on the same site where the church stands.
It has a rectangular plan with 3 naves. Its vaults are of the barrel and cross types. Inside, the dome, the main reredos and the sacramental chapel are outstanding. It also has the carvings of 'Jesús de la Pasión', the work of Martínez Montañés, and 'El Cristo del Amor' by Juan de Mena. Although building work on this church began in the 17th century, on its site there was also a Roman temple, a Palaeochristian, Visigothic and Mozarab basilica, and, in the 11th century, the great mosque of Seville, of which the Courtyard of the Ablutions and the Minaret (now a bell tower) are still preserved.
