Arahal – San Antonio de Padua Chapel
San Antonio de Padua Chapel
Its origin dates from the last third of the 18th century.
It consists of a single nave with five articulated sections with grooved pilasters attached to it and covered by hemispherical domes. The original 18th century altarpiece was replaced by a modern one that contains the central image of St. Anthony of Papua, to replace the one destroyed in 1936.
Several traditional images and canvases have been preserved.
The city of Arahal is located on a hill 117 meters above sea level, occupying a strip of land to the southwest of Seville determined by La Campiña, a region and natural area characterized by its hills and plains and delimited by the Sierra South, the Vega del Guadalquivir and Los Alcores. It should be noted that, within its municipal area, the Morón de la Frontera Air Base is located, which takes its name from the neighboring nucleus, due to its greater proximity to the main access to it.
The municipality of Arahal belongs to the Landscape Demarcation of the Countryside of Seville. Read more…
