Historic Centre

Somewhere near the site where El Salvador stands today, the first settlement in the city was established around the 8th century BC.

Historic centre Seville's historic centre is one of the largest in the world. This is hardly surprising as in the 16th century, its golden age, the city was the third largest in Europe. Some of the central areas are among the oldest in the city.
Historic centre Thus, on a slightly raised area, somewhere near the site where El Salvador stands today, the first settlement in the city was established around the 8th century BC. The area, with the Town Hall, the Plaza de San Francisco, the Cathedral, as well as the Churches of El Salvador and La Magdalena was later to become the administrative, social and religious centre. Further on towards the river is the quarter of El Arenal and the Maestranza bullring. Traces of history, famous characters and legends are ubiquitous in its streets and buildings: from Julius Caesar to Carlos V, Velazquez, Cervantes, Curro Romero, Carmen the cigarette maker… one has to be constantly alert to appreciate the full meaning of the quarter's highly evocative mixture of ingredients.

Walkers will find comfort in the numerous bars where a beer and a tapa can be enjoyed in lively conversation with a friend.

Historic centre Sevillians are happiest on the streets: enjoying the sunshine, the mild evenings, the scent of orange blossom in the spring… always something new, always theirs. The Calle Sierpes is in the heart of a tangle of narrow streets along which one can stroll through sunshine and shade, the hustle and bustle, casually bumping into acquaintances, discovering a new perspective, doing some shopping, going to work, or just enjoying a leisurely walk. Traditional shops, restaurants, and bars - some over a hundred years old - mingle with more modern ones and cater for all kinds of tastes. Walkers will find comfort in the numerous bars where a beer and a tapa can be enjoyed in lively conversation with a friend. An invitation to enjoy the pleasures of life.
