These archaeological remains, found during the expansion and restoration of the casa hermandad, have an important historic and artistic value, as the oldest ruins date back to the Roman period. However, especially remarkable are the fresco paintings from the Abbadid dynasty period (11th century), as they are unique in Spain.

 

Unicaja Banco’s collaboration in this project falls within its interest in the conservation and restoration of the cultural and historic heritage, actions carried out in the areas where it operates in general and in Seville in particular.

 

The Hermandad de la Hiniesta, in Seville, has inaugurated today, with the suppor of Unicaja Banco and Seville City Hall, the new exhibition space created after the restoration of the archaeological remains from the Abbadid dynasty period (11th century) found in the basement of the brotherhood’s headquarters (casa hermandad), in the neighborhood of San Julián

 

The inauguration has been attended by, among others, Unicaja Banco’s Area Managera for Seville, Javier Aguilera; by Seville Mayor, Juan Espadas, and by the Hermano Mayor of the brotherhood, José Antonio Romero.

 

This museum space has been developed following a project made by architects Nerea López and Mabel Regidor and by the conservator Jesús Serrano, from Gares Restauraciones, and fostered by the Territorial Delegation in Seville of the Department of Culture of the Junta de Andalucía.

 

These are unique vestiges to articulate the history of the neighborhood of San Julián. In the particular case of the fresco painting from the Abbdid dynasty era, it is a unique sample in Spain, as there is no other work from the Taifas period with that extension, quality and so exceptionally well preserved in the country.

 

Unicaja Banco’s collaboration in this exhibition and museum project responds to the bank’s interest in the conservation and restoration of the historic and cultural heritage, actions which are carried out in the areas where it operates in general and in Seville in particular.

 

For those purposes, at the end of 2018, Unicaja Banco signed a collaboration agreement with Hermandad de la Hiniesta, to ensure the conservation of those remains, of important historic and artistic value given that the oldest remains date back to the Roman period, as well as to adapt the space to be open to the public.

 

Archaeological remains of important historic value

 

These remains were found during the construction works of the processional brotherhood’s headquarters (casa hermandad), and included fragments of metallic objects, coins and ceramics mainly.

 

The oldest remains are materials from the Roman or late Roman period, from around 5th century, but no architectonic ruins from those dates have been found. The main built constructions date back to the Islamic period, with a cistern with stucco walls painted with ochre pigments (almagra) from the Emirate period (9th century). Especially relevant is a socle decorated with fresco paintings from the Abbadid dynasty era (11th century).
