Arahal Parish Church of Santa Maria Magdalena
Parish Church of Santa Maria Magdalena
The Parish Church of Santa Maria Magdalena is located in the Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno Square, opposite to the House of the Marqueses of la Peña de los Enamorados, in the locality of Arahal.
Built in 1800 by architect Lucas Cintora on the site of an old Mudejar church destroyed by the Lisbon earthquake in 1755 whose tower and tabernacle still remain.
It’s a neoclassical building which consist of three naves, a transept and choir behind the presbytery. It’s notable for being the largest and most coherent work in this style remaining in the province of Seville. The tower is formed by three sections and a pyramid-shaped spire. The first two sections are square in shape and the last is octagonal. The main altar, a semi-circular shrine, is dominated by a carving of St. Mary Magdalene, patron saint of the town. The parish archive is important too as some of its books date from 1528.
