Points of Interest

If you see only one baroque church in Seville, this should be it, considered the outstanding example of Andalucían baroque. Its cupola and roof are covered in colorful ceramic tiles, and one façade is decorated by blue sundials.

The original Gothic church of the Dominicans was completely updated between 1691 and 1709 into the building we see... More

The early-17th-century Convento de la Merced (Merced Convent) was repurposed in the mid-1800s, to house art works from convents and churches that were sold during renovations or closures. But continuing modernization projects since then have made room for a vast collection that now encompasses works from the Medieval period through the early 20th ... More

4. Calle San Vicente

Beginning at the Plaza Museo, Calle San Vicente heads north into the heart of the neighborhood. Although a very narrow street, it is lined by noble mansions of the 18th and 19th centuries. Be sure to look up on both sides of the street to see their grilled windows and the balconies, both open and enclosed in the traditional style to afford ladies ... More

5. Iglesia de San Lorenzo

The parish church of San Lorenzo faces a shaded square, its bright pink facade contrasting vividly with the gray stone Mudejar-Gothic tower behind it.

The church’s 18th-century main chapel was designed by Diego López Bueno, and the high altarpiece is the work of Martínez Montañes. Look especially for paintings in the tabernacle by Francisco... More

Despite its location off the usual tourist routes, Eslava is no secret. It’s a local favorite and the few others who find it blend into the crowd that invariably fills its tables. If there are no seats in the café or dining room, enjoy inexpensive tapas at the bar, where the chalkboard list - like the long menu - is entirely in Spanish. Seafood... More

7. Convento de Santa Clara

The only access to the vast complex of this former monastery would be easy to miss, were it not for the bright red and yellow of its small 17th-century doorway. The rest is tucked away with no visible clue except occasional glimpses of the top of its 13th-century crenelated tower.

Behind this small gateway lies a leafy garden with a fountain, a... More

8. Real Monasterio de San Clemente

Calle Santa Clara ends at the formidable walls of the large Convent of San Clemente built by Alfonso X (1221-1284). Part of it was restored as exhibition space for Expo 92 and opened to the public. Another part is still an active cloistered convent.

The church, open to the public, is a fine example of Mudejar architecture and decoration. It... More
