The church gets its importance to Seville from the Virgen de la Esperanza Macarena sculpture (attributed to La Roldana end of the 17th century), which stands in the center of Sevillian Marian worship.
Get an idea of this Virgin cult in the church's museum, where her jewels and Semana Santa floats are displayed.
