Monastery of San Jeronimo de Buenavista Seville

The Monastery of San Jeronimo de Buenavista is a unique venue founded over 600 years ago by Friar Diego de Sevilla. It is located in the San Jeronimo district and it contains works by renowned sculptors and painters, such as Torrigiano, Valdes Leal, Murillo and Zurbaran.

On the 11th February 1414, the first stone was laid of what was to become one of the most important Andalusian monasteries and it was celebrated with a procession from the old Cathedral of Seville – a former mosque converted for Christian worship- to the site where it was to be erected, outside the city.

The construction of the Monastery involved such prominent figures as Diego de Riaño (creator of the Plateresque facade of the City Hall), Martín de Gaínza (who worked on the Royal Chapel of the Cathedral), Hernán Ruiz (who designed the Renaissance body of the Giralda and the belfry of the church of San Jerónimo).

The Monastery of San Jerónimo de Buenavista was declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1964 and was acquired by Seville City Council on the 8th March 1984. It was reopened in 2015, following restoration of various areas, and become a new civic centre.
