BOOK YOUR ACTIVITY AND
LIVE A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
This year 2017 marks the IV Centenary of the Birth of Bartolomé Esteban de Murillo, and what better way to get to know him than through one of his favourite places, the Cathedral of Seville. During our visit to this great cathedral, we can enjoy some of his most important works.
The first we will meet will be in the Baptistery of the Cathedral. There we will delight ourselves with the magnificent pictorial altarpiece of the Vision of St. Anthony of Padua, a painting that shows St. Anthony receiving the child Jesus with open arms, in a moment of total spirituality. Above it we will enjoy the Baptism of Christ, which places us perfectly before what we can live in this chapel.A little further on, we will meet the Guardian Angel, in a small chapel that goes completely unnoticed, but which we don’t want to miss.
In the main sacristy you can see two important works, San Isidoro and San Leandro, both carried out in 1655, which constitute a perfect game, together with other works such as Santa Teresa de Zurbarán or El Descendimiento de Cristo de Pedro de Campaña.
After a short walk, we will go to the Chapter Hall where we will be pleasantly surprised by the Immaculate Conception, represented by her white tunic and her blue mantle, typical of Murillo's painting. And although they may go unnoticed, there are also eight magnificent works by other saints related to the city of Seville, such as San Isidoro, San Leandro, San Pio, San Hermenegildo, Santa Justa, Santa Rufina, San Fernando and San Laureano.
Finally, we will be able to visit the pictorial exhibition that the Cathedral maintains in its general entrance, in which we will observe Fernando III in Santo, one of his most famous works.
In short, a visit that will immerse us in the best of Murillo and many other artists.
