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
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.
