Church of los Dolores

Church of los Dolores This 18th century church, situated in the Plaza de Capuchinos, is part of the San Jacinto Hospital, which dates from the 16th century. The sober main façade is made up of two entrances, which lead to an interior decorated with fine plasterwork. It houses one of the most popular images in the city - a magnificent example of Cordoban Baroque sculpture - the Virgen de los Dolores (Virgen of Sorrows), the work of Juan Prieto in 1718,  which is taken around the city streets in a procession on Good Friday by over six hundred  Nazarenos (image-bearers) with more than a thousand penitents following in its wake.
