*In 1063 the relics of St Isidore of Seville were transferred to this church. They now rest within a silver urn in the main sanctuary. During his life much of Roman society collapsed leaving academic institutions in disarray. During this time St Isidore used his great gifts as a scholar to preserve and pass on much of the ancient classical learning. He is considered by many as the most learned man of his age.
