Churches in Seville (Spain).
IGLESIA DE SAN PEDRO

The Iglesia de San Pedro is a Catholic temple constructed during the 14th century and renovated later during the 16th and 18th centuries.

The Gothic-Mudejar façade, is attributed to Vermondo Resta. The tower, found beside the lateral door presents two distinct styles: an older mudéjar architecture and a newer body where the bellfry is found attributed to Martin Infante.

The main altarpiece is a work of Felipe de Ribas between 1641 and 1657 where one can find scenes of the life of St. Peter at the lateral columns and a central sculpture of St. Peter, enthroned as a Pope, the Assumption of Our Lady and the Crucifix at the center column.
