Seville houses one of the most valuable groups of cloisters in Spain, which hold countless art treasures. Due to the nature of these kinds of buildings and the religious communities that live in, the architectural, sculptural, painting and sumptuary heritage contained in monasteries and convents had remained unknown. Sponsored by Abengoa, this book reviews 17 monasteries and nunneries in Seville, such as San Leandro, Santa Clara, Santa Paula or Santa María del Socorro, and includes unseen pieces that were first published in 1980, when the volume was released.
