San Pablo : Michelin's recommendations
The church was part of the old convent of St Paul founded by Ferdinand III in memory of the reconquest of Cordoba on the 29th of June 1236, St Paul's day. A Baroque style doorway was rebuilt in 1706 in the calle Capitulares. Some wreathed columns flank the entrance arch which has a statue of St Paul. After the doorway you cross a church square to reach the church The bell towers have been replaced by a carillon. Inside, three great spaces with harmonious proportions have preserved the transitory style from the Romanesque to the Gothic in spite of the alterations. Admire the superb Mudejar craftsmanship of the vaults. The chapel on the left of the presbiterio contains the statue of Our Lady of the Agonies 17C by Juan de Mesa, also the creator of the famous Christ Of Great Power in Seville. The richly dressed Virgin has her face bathed in tears and holds in her arms her dead son. At the entrance on the lower right side, notice the box ceiling and the walls covered with stucco on a lower level of tiles on the Mudejar chapel of the 15C.
