Maravilloso lugar donde los haya, además de ver la historia de los conventos y sus Iglesias, normalmente barricas aquí en Écija, el interior es muy acogedor, es una capilla chiquita y recogida que destaca por su ornamentación, es digna de ver además de visitar una de las Iglesias, bueno capilla de un convento que tiene arraigada la historia de Écija. Excelente lugar para visitar.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
