The Church of Saint Louis of France (Iglesia de San Luis de los Franceses) is located in the historic centre of Seville (Andalusia, Spain). Its architectural style is baroque, from the eighteenth century. It is named after King Louis IX of France, cousin of King Ferdinand III of Castile.
After the expulsion of the Jesuits, the church has fulfilled several functions. It has been a seminar, a Franciscan monastery, a factory, a hospice and a stage for theatrical performances.
After some remodelling, the church opens to the public as such. Once inside, you will be amazed by the Main Altarpiece, the rest of altarpieces, the altars, the spiral columns and the impressive dome. The central dome is decorated with paintings by Lucas Valdés and images of saints like St. Francis of Assisi or St. Augustine.
The Domestic Chapel, separately from the Church, was a private church. There is something that will catch your attention for sure: the altarpiece and the many images and frescos.
The crypt is located under the main nave. Here, there were found remains of many people.
