Macarena basilica is a modern church, built between 1936 and 1941 by architect Gómez Millán in Neo-Baroque style.


It is located near the Puerta de la Macarena, which was the entrance of the Defensive Walls to the Macarena quarter of Seville.

Puerta de la Macarena

The church gets its importance to Seville from the Virgen de la Esperanza Macarena sculpture (attributed to La Roldana end of the 17th century), which stands in the center of Sevillian Marian worship.

Defensive Walls
