Photos:    Santa Catalina church

Santa Catalina church of Seville was built in 14th century on the remains of the former mosque. It is in Gothic-Mudéjar style, however it has been strongly renovated over the years.
In 1929 the Gothic entrance of Santa Lucía church was moved to Santa Catalina. The result is a second door in front of the hidden  Original one, which is in Mudéjar style.

Inside find interesting artwork:
- Mudéjar style ceiling
- retablo mayor from 1624-1629 by Diego López Bueno
- Stmo. Cristo (christ) de la Exaltación by Pedro Roldán from 1687
- Capilla Sacramental in baroque style by Leonardo de Figueroa from 1721
- Baroque retablo with painting of S. Pedro, by Pedro de Campaña from 1560

Another example of recycling of former buildings you will find in the nearby (20) Columnas de Hercules.
