Andalusia’s Feast Day

More than 1700 people visited the Hospital de los Venerables on February, 28th 2016 on the occasion of Andalusia’s Feast Day. The Focus Foundation organized a wide range of special activities that allowed attendees to enjoy our artistic heritage.

In the Baroque Library visitors discovered its history, saw some of its most interesting books, went up the lookout tower and beheld the engraving Mapa del convento jurídico hispalense, by Jerónimo Chiaves, dated 1579.

On the other hand, José Enrique Ayarra Jarne, the tenured organist of the Focus-Abengoa Foundation and the cathedral of Seville, was the exceptional guide through the curiosities and history of our majestic baroque organ housed in the Hospital de los Venerables church. Furthermore, José Enrique Ayarra himself played exclusive musical works for the visitors.

Finally, Engranajes Culturales performed their historical recreation that showed hidden corners of the Hospital de los Venerables and the history of the building.
