Seville Places And Charm, Spain

Barrio Santa Cruz

Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Barrio Santa Cruz - originally the Jewish neighborhood - offers its visitors offers its visitors the magnificence of the city's cathedral, the palaces of the Alcazar and the Archive of the Indies. A stroll along its streets will bring you past the shop windows with Azulejos and ceramic works depicting religious images, or shops with beautiful fabrics and clothes, mother of pearl fans and inlaid wooden objects. The houses in the barrio are whitewashed, cared for and always decorated with beautiful flowers and plants, surrounded by narrow lanes that come out in front of the orange trees of Plaza Dona Elvira or in the beautiful Plaza Santa Cruz. Nearby, in the tiny Plaza Refinaderos, is the monument to the great seducer of Seville: the Christian knight Don Juan Tenorio, a character born from the imagination of the novelist Josè Zorrilla. The heart of Seville beats in Barrio Santa Cruz!


Barrio de San Bartolomè

In addition to Casa Pilatos, this ancient and fascinating neighborhood offers a chance to visit the Church of Santa Maria la Blanca, another Baroque Sevillian masterpiece, with red marble columns and works such as the Last Supper by Murillo and La Piedad by Luis de Vargas. Not too far away, after crossing a picturesque alley, you will arrive at Plaza de San Francisco, once the heart of Seville. It was the site for parties, celebrations, festivals, bullfights and the terrible trials of the Inquisition. The City Hall is still located here.


Barrio de la Macarena

It is the most popular neighborhood in Seville and its basilica contains the statue of the Virgin, the protagonist of Holy Week. Walking through its streets you can breathe in the atmosphere of Andalusia, among beautiful palaces and Baroque churches, such as the Church of San Luis. The nearby parish of St. Lawrence contains the image of Jesus del Gran Poder, one of the most venerated in Seville.


Placa de Santa Marta

This tiny square is right in the city center, just a few steps away from the Cathedral of Seville, wrapped in a distant and quiet atmosphere, set among orange trees and geraniums that decorate the wrought-iron gates. Pure poetry!


Parque Maria Luisa

Designed by French landscape architect Le Forestier, this beautiful park is one of the most important green spaces of Seville. It is named after Maria Luisa Fernanda de Orleans, who donated the large area where it was developed, following a French style, with orange trees, cedars and plane trees, a triumph of ponds, fountains and waterworks. The famous 1929 Universal Exposition had its seat in some of the buildings in the park, which also includes two of the most beautiful squares in the city: Plaza de America and Plaza de España. 


Isla Magica (Magic Island) theme park

If you are traveling with children, you must make a detour to Isla Magica! It is located on the Island of Cartuja and can be reached crossing the Barqueta bridge. You will travel through time with multimedia shows that will transport you to time of the discovery of the Americas, you'll scream on the red mountains of Anaconda or while rafting on the rapids of the Orinoco! There are also pirate's coves, Amazon "forests", free-falls from over 60 meters high and much more, for a day of carefree fun. There are restaurants, bars and plenty of refreshment stops.
