Hospital de la Caridad

The Brotherhood of La Santa Caridad, it means Holy Charity, dates from the middle of the 16th century. It was founded in the same place where it is located today. The San jorge Church is situated in the "Atarazanas Reales".

It was probably founded for humanitarian reasons, to bury the bodies of those who had been executed and no one had claimed and of those who had drowned in the river.

Don Miguel Mañara, the Sevillian aristocrat, was the driving force of the Brotherhood. He changed his own life and restored the building.
The church, called San Jorge, is a representative Sevillian baroque building. Inside the church, there is a very important colletion of works of art by different artists such Murillo, Valdés Leal, Bernardo Simón de Pineda, and Pedro Roldán.
