Marchena Sevilla

View properties

Sixty kilometers south of Seville, in the undulating cereal fields and olive groves of La Campiña of the Guadalquivir valley is Marchena. This pretty town liberally sprinkled with well-preserved monuments was in its heyday presided over by the Dukes of Arcos, who built the elegant colonnaded square, the Plaza Ducal, in front of what used to be the dukes' majestic mansion, which was sadly demolished in the early 20th century.

Marchena Location

Marchena is worth a visit for its collection of paintings by one of Spain's finest 17th-century artists, Francisco de Zubarán from Extremadura, along with other religious art.

The town has a long history, whose settlers left their mark most notably with the town walls, first constructed by the Romans, revamped by the Moors and largely rebuilt by the Christians under Ferdinand III, who captured the town in 1240. Today, the restored Torre de Oro is the most impressive tower along this wall, while the Puerta de Sevilla, also known as the Arco de la Rosa, is the best gate..

Marchena Andalucia centre

In the mid-14th century the town became a seigneury of Ponce de León and in the next century, the dukes of Arcos.

Don't miss the Mudéjar parish church of San Juan Bautista, which houses the Museo Zubarán in its sacristy, with nine magnificent religious paintings by the renowned artist, of which the best is undoubtedly the canvas of La Inmaculada. Also part of the museum is a collection of intricately worked silver and gold liturgical objects, many dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. The museum is open on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 2pm. In the church are two 17th-century sculptures by Alonso Cano and Pedro de Mena. The church itself is built in the Gothic-Mudéjar style and dates from the 14th century.
