The San Roque Church is located in the San Roque Square, in the locality of Arahal, province of Sevilla.

This baroque church was built by the Franciscans and inaugurated on the 3rd of May 1624. The main altarpiece, also baroque in style, is attributed to Tomás Guiado el Viejo. In the central vaulted niche is an image of the Virgin of the Sorrows, from the end of the 17th century, by an unknown sculptor, but of exceptional beauty and expression.

The church is also the canonic seat of the Hermandad del Santo Entierro (Brotherhood of the Holy Burial)
