Seville – Basílica de la Macarena

This church was constructed between 1941 and 1949, which is much more modern than the interior might otherwise suggest. The brotherhood behind the church moved to this current site after their previous building was badly damaged by arsonists.

The above two photos are of Esperanza Macarena de Sevilla, a beautiful portrayal of the Madonna, which dates to 1680. Her tears are made of crystals and the figure itself is made from wood.

The above two photos are of figures which are in the side chapels.

The church is a well known attraction in Seville because of the Madonna statue, which is also carried around the city during a saint’s weekend.
