Ultimate Seville Guide by Neighborhood

January 27, 2021
It really is a shame that Seville isn't a more popular city than it already is. At least, not like Madrid and Barcelona, two of the most visited cities, not just in Spain, but in Europe in general. In contrast, Seville is more like a city that's popular among locals rather than an international tourist destination. It's completely underrated in terms of the major cities to visit around the world. Why is that? Seville is an amazing city after all! Perhaps people ought to learn more about it so that they can better appreciate and want to go here!

Arenal

Over the years, Arenal has become one of the most central residential districts in Seville. With so many great houses and apartments on offer, a lot of people, both from other parts of Spain and outside of the country, chose to settle down in this seaside area. Nowadays, it's a lively enough district full of tapas bars, authentic Spanish bistros, and chill cafes. Not to mention some high fashion stores and boutiques too! The place today is a far cry from centuries ago when the port of Arenal used to be the most important harbor in connecting the Americas back to Europe.

Centro Histórico

Speaking of Seville from centuries ago, you can still get a good glimpse of what the city was like back then in Centro Histórico. By its name alone, you can already tell that this place is one big nostalgia-inducing history tour. Of course, the main star of the show is, without a doubt, the Catedral de Sevilla, one of the most important and most beautiful churches in Spain. To this day, it attracts millions just by its gothic beauty. A tourist-friendly area through and through, you'll find a lot of great hotels, luxury rentals, and other great accommodations here too!

Distrito Sur

Even though the seaside city of Seville, in a way, close to nature, no other area within the city is more in-tune with Mother Earth than Distrito Sur! Home to many parks and other incredible sights, you can still get your fair share of botanical bliss in this slightly urban and undeniably beautiful district. Most popular among locals, the vast Parque Maria Luisa is here. It's a natural retreat full of exciting flora, lush greeneries, and calm water. You can spend an entire day here with family and friends and it'd be time well-spent! If you prefer, the equally stunning Plaza de España is also a great place for a family day!

Feria

In Spanish, the word 'Feria' means carnival or fiesta. And while this part of Seville doesn't exactly have a fiesta or runs a carnival 24/7, it's safe to say you can still enjoy your time here! It does, however, have a sick nightlife scene courtesy of the bars, pubs, nightclubs, and more in the area. so instead of going wild in a traditional fiesta—often held during a Spanish holiday—you can still party as if you're in one in this district. During the day, however, you can shop at the exciting markets, marvel at the classic Spanish architecture, and more!

Los Remedios

Marked by its stunningly colorful grand entrance arc, Los Remedios is one of the more affluent neighborhoods in Seville. Highly residential, you can expect a good many suburban areas here, at least, compared to the other places on this list. If you're planning to start a new life, particularly with family, here in the city of Seville, your best bet of ensuring that it's going to normal and standard living is moving to Los Remedios. The most exciting part here is that it's home to ' Feria de April,' an annual Seville fiesta held at the end of Holy Week! You won't want to miss it!

Macarena

Also referred to as 'La Macarena,' this is one of the more underrated parts of Seville. While most tourists would likely focus on Centro Histórico or new residents would prefer to move to Los Remedios, the idyllic town of Macarena is oftentimes unfairly overlooked. It's just as residential as the latter, with beautiful Spanish homes that harken back to more opulent centuries. As for attractions, the stunning Convento de Santa Inés is a great place to check out. Solemn and stunning, it's one of those must-see sights you really shouldn't miss whilst in Spain.

Santa Cruz

In the central Jewish neighborhood of Seville, you'll be surprised at what to expect in Santa Cruz! For one thing, of course, the beautiful synagogues are such sights to behold! Beguiling in their architecture and colors, they're as eye-catching to post on social media as Barcelona is. Another is that there are a ton of places you can watch some flamenco! The passionate dance that Spain has shared with the rest of the world, you won't see anything like how the dancers here perform. They're the real deal! So much so that you'll end up wanting to dance it yourself!

Triana

Finally, there's Triana. Often lumped together with the district of Arenal, this particular area has a life of its own. One that continues to uplift in its colorful culture and exotic charms. This is because Triana was once the Gypsy quarter of Seville. It's here where bohemians played by their own rules, performing tricks and dances to enchant the people around them. Today, Triana is still a place where passion still burns fervently, what with the flamenco clubs and bullfighting arenas that you really must see for yourself. They all showcase Spanish culture and heritage at their finest!
