It’s a marvellous holy place steeped in religious history spanning the centuries.

Established in 1301 it is named to honour the revered Visigothic Saint Isidoro, after whom so many religious institutions in the district are named.

Having an eventful biography, it was deemed a Special Monument in 1872 and had a major revamp in 2002.

Restoration to original sumptuousness emanated from the latter and it is now a joy to visit.

We were staying in Santiponce, so visiting during its late afternoon/evening opening on a Saturday was easy. Free admission was nice, however explanations were solely in Spanish. ( It appeared as if in the past English translations had been available, but not any more.). So we wandered around the facility for a brief period, admired some religious artwork on the walls for a time, and then left, really none the wiser about the history of the place, nor the purpose of the various rooms we saw. A missed opportunity really,

The monastery is a re-work in progress. The place is easily accessible and off the beaten path. It is a quiet piece of regional history that should be on the list to see. We spent nearly two hours admiring the beauty and the peaceful nature of the place. The entrance is free and it is a cultural gem.

This monastery is authentic, interesting and besides that also free for EU-members. It is around 20 minutes walking to Italica, so not that far.

We did the 4 hour tour with Naturanda which included Italica and the monastery. This was an amazing good value led by encyclopaedic Enrique, who was entertaining and thoroughly grounded in his material. Italica wows with its mosaics and its amphitheatre, but the monastery is overwhelming in its awesome monumental beauty. The frescoes themselves are worth it. A 14th century Last Supper by Florentine artist, occupying a whole wall is totally unexpected and wonderful. The wooden alter pieces are among the finest I have seen. Enrique was full of stories about the family that has owned the monastery since its founding in 1301. Highly recommended!

We visited the monastery before walking on to the tremendous Roman ruins of Italica, as suggested by the Rough Guide. Although we were glad we'd done so, the warning I would like to give is that by doing things in this order you can be exposed to the incredible heat of the day by the time you get to Italica. On reflection, I would have done things in the opposite order, or simply got there earlier in the day, because we had to skip some of Italica due to the unbearable lunchtime heat (mid-September). However, the monastery is certainly worth a visit and was almost deserted when we went on a weekday morning. There are excellent English language information cards in each room so that you can understand what you are looking at, and it was free to enter. The bus M170a leaves from stand 41 at the far end of Seville's main bus station and stops on the main road outside the monastery, if you request it, before continuing to the ruins of Italica. Allow about half an hour to see the monastery.

Delightful and the female & only member of staff was charming.
NOTE-DOOR ONLY OPENS ON HOUR 10-3.
No audio-guide but leaflets in English positioned appropriately.
Just loved it and just so sad that so much of it remains a virtual ruin & not available to the public. Amazing ceilings.
So worth the visit.

I wanted to visit Italica only but was recommended by a local tour guide to see the monastery as well.

It is very interesting, quite well preserved. All in all you will need a tour guide, it is free entrance. It was extremely nice as I was inside with a guide. He could explain everything that I wanted to know and more.

I recommend this monument, it is really worth a visit

We had seen this massive building from the motorway on our way to Italica. By car it is actually only 5 minutes away and could be easily walked. The building looks but is open to the public. The hours are restricted so check their web site for opening times before you visit. The entrance is round the back of the building. A large part of the building is derelict and will never be renovated as it is of little historical interest. The main church and cloisters have been well preserved, the two altar pieces are sumptuous and there numerous frescos.
Add this to your itinerary when you come out to Santiponce to visit Italica.

Old building with fascinating history, lovely art by Spanish masters (Martinez Montanez, et.) and place where first Spanish translation of Bible was done.
