The Capilla de los Marineros (Sailors' Chapel) is a Catholic cult building located on Calle Pureza, in the Triana neighborhood. It is the headquarters of the Brotherhood of Esperanza de Triana. It was constructed in 1759 on the site where the chapel of the Colegio de Mareantes de Sevilla had been. After the French occupation, it was secularized and converted into a warehouse, later becoming an Anglican church and theatre. In 1953, the Brotherhood of la Esperanza, at the request of its spiritual director José Sebastián y Bandarán, decided to restore it, and the work began in 1958 with plans by Aurelio Gómez Millán. The blessing took place in 1962 and on Good Friday of that year, the brotherhood ended its penitential season in its new headquarters. In 2010, the expansion work began, according to the architectural plans by José Ramón Rodríguez Gautier, and thanks to the purchase by the brotherhood of properties adjacent to the chapel. In the temple’s reforms, two new altarpieces and modern security systems were included for the icons. After the work, on April 29, 2010, the chapel was blessed by Juan José Asenjo Pelegrina, Archibishop of Seville.
