Description

Found inside the Basilica of the Macarena, in the neighborhood of the same same, in the extreme north of the Historical District of the city and next to the most well preserved part of the city walls. Deep inside the museum, you can find the image of the Virgin Mary of Hope, popularly known as the Macarena, one of the most permanent and well-known statues of the Virgin Mary in the Sevillian Holy Week and what gives its fame to the Brotherhood of the Macarena. It is an autonomous work dating from the late 17th or the early 18th Century, that has been attributed to Pedro Roldán, to his daughter La Roldana, and to Hita del Castrillo. You can admire the statue that every Holy Week is paraded through the streets of Seville before the exceptional fervor of her loyal followers and the amazement of other visitors to the Andalusian capital. Since the Macarena is the statue that attracts the majority of its visitors, in this museum you will discover everything that surrounds one of the most important Spanish works of art: dresses, crowns, shawls, gold and silversmithery, candlemas, etc.
