El barrio de Triana, Sevilla

This charming neighbourhood with stone streets is located on the other side of the Guadalquivir River.

Santa Cruz is the historic neighbourhood of the city, brimming with reminiscences of Seville's Arab and Jewish past.

The most interesting thing to do is explore the network of alleys contained within the streets Menéndez Pelayo, Santa María la Blanca, ...

Stroll through the Arenal (30 minutes):

Barrio del Arenal, Sevilla

This neighbourhood was the site of shipyards and munitions dumps, and the cradle of cunningness of the Andalusian capital. An important port during the 16th and 17th centuries, it owed its growth to commerce with the New World. For this reason, in addition to its "special" character, the Arenal seduced such writers as Cervantes, Quevedo and Lope de Vega. Here you'll find ...

Stroll through María Luisa Park (1 hour):

Parque de María Luisa, Sevilla

As the park is big, we recommend biking to Plaza de América, though you can also get there on foot. Avenida de Pizarro and the area of ponds between Avenida de Pizarro and Avenida de los Cisnes are very pretty. On the way back to the centre, take Paseo de las Delicias, which, in addition to being nice, has a bike lane.

La Anselma (C/ Pagés del Corro 49, on the corner of Antillano Campos) is probably the most authentic place in Triana for flamenco and cante rociero (traditional folk singing). Improvised flamenco, flamenco singers taking turns, good atmosphere... Things get going around 12:30 p.m., though we recommend arriving at midnight to secure a good place (closed Sundays). Mixed ...
