Plaza San Sebastián, 9


Chronology: 15th century Style: Mudéjar

Built in the 15th century, this building stands out for the preservation of its Gothic-Mudejar structure. Although its current appearance includes some modifications made in the 1990s, inside it still maintains the polygonal star-ribbed Gothic vaulting in the apse. Originally located on the outskirts along a road leading to Seville, the growth of the population and the popularity of the fair led to the urbanization of its surroundings, integrating it into the urban fabric.

The street where it is located was known as Mesones because of the large number of establishments that were created to provide shelter and food to those who came annually to the livestock event in Mairena. Nowadays, the hermitage is a place of worship to Saint Sebastian and to the crowned patron and perpetual mayoress of Mairena, the Virgin of Los Remedios, who is processed through the streets of the town in September.

This virgin is also honored with a pilgrimage that has been celebrated since the 1960s in the pine forest of La Salve in mid-September. A prayer was often repeated among the faithful who came to the hermitage to ask for help: “You are the Patron of Mairena and such is our fortune, that in your hermitage we find relief for all sorrows.”
