In Seville's Triana barrio , the Virgen de la Estrella Chapel is the definitive home of the brotherhood of the Pontificia, Real, Ilustre y Fervorosa Hermandad Sacramental y Cofradía de Nazarenos de Nuestro Padre Jesús de las Penas, María Santísima de la Estrella, Triunfo del Santo Lignum Crucis, San Francisco de Paula y Santas Justa y Rufina, following four other locations since it was founded in 1560. Its procession takes place on Palm Sunday.

The current location of the Virgen de la Estrella Chapel was created in October 1962, with the acquisition of a site at 41 Calle San Jacinto, where the architect Alfonso Gómez de la Lastra was asked to design a home for the Brotherhood.

The Chapel plans were approved in 1973 and the architect Delgado Roig Antonio was commissioned to perform the work, with the altars being the work of Antonio Martín. The design gets the most out of the difficult geometry of a typical urban plot hemmed in by dividing walls. Thus, the “nooks” are used to house the altars. It also has a choir and sacristy, and an interior staircase giving access to the Brotherhood's facilities in the upper storeys of the building.

The Virgen de la Estrella chapel was blessed by Cardinal Bueno Monreal on Holy Saturday 1976. The following day, Palm Sunday, the Brotherhood left the San Jacinto for the final time to enter its new home. The chapel was refurbished and extended in 1982 and 1988.

We do not know who made the Virgen de la Estrella statue, a life-size Our Lady of Sorrows with candlestick, but it is traditionally attributed to the sculptor Juan Martínez Montañés. However, more recent studies suggest it may be the work of Luisa Ignacia Roldán (La Roldana) during his Seville period, which coincided with the 1674 merger with the Hermandad de Ntro. Padre Jesús de las Penas brotherhood.

Restoration work on the Jesus de las Penas statue in 1997 revealed a document hidden in the pedestal attributing it to José de Arce and dating it to 1655. The image of the Blessed John Paul II, seated and wearing a white cassock, red cape and stole was carved by José Antonio Navarro Arteaga in 2012.

The Hermandad de la Estrella is known as La Valiente (the Brave) for being the only Seville brotherhood to perform the penitence stations on Maundy Thursday 1932.
