Looking for an apartment in La Alameda in Seville? This colourful, fun-filled district is bustling with shops, cultural activities, restaurants and pavement cafes. It’s the perfect place to stay if you're travelling with family or friends or for a romantic getaway.
The heart of this central neighbourhood in Seville is the lovely 16th-century Alameda de Hércules. This was the first public garden in Spain and takes its name from its two huge columns: one dedicated to Hercules and the other to Julius Caesar. They have since been joined by other sculptures reflecting many of the city’s deep-rooted traditions, including bullfighting and flamenco, in the form of bullfighter Chicuelo and flamenco singers Manolo Caracol and La Niña de los Peines. Soak up the atmosphere for yourself by renting one of our holiday apartments in Seville!
The Alameda de Hércules is a joy to behold, with buildings rich in history, such as the Casa de las Sirenas, a 19th-century palace that now houses a collection of local art and runs cultural activities. Some Sevillians will tell you it is haunted… how about coming to find out for yourself?
Renting an apartment in La Alameda in Seville is a great idea if you like art and culture, thanks to the nearby Convento de Santa Clara, with its beautiful cloister and impressive collection of traditional ceramics. Next to the convent is the Espacio Santa Clara, home to the Instituto de las Artes y la Cultura de Sevilla, which puts on a packed programme of art and poetry events. If you're still thirsty for more, head over to the Teatro Alameda for a wide range of plays and the annual Festival del Cine Europeo de Sevilla.
If you're looking for an apartment in the centre of Seville and are keen to try the local cuisine, this neighbourhood is full of cafes, bars and restaurants where you can get a real feel for the city. All along the Paseo de la Alameda you’ll find terraces and restaurants serving traditional tapas, signature cuisine and international dishes. Check out Calle Feria for classics such as Casa Vizcaíno, specialists in vermouth, and Bar Ambigú, ideal for authentic Seville tapas.
Very close to Calle Feria is the Basílica de la Macarena, with its famous Neo-Baroque altarpiece, and a definite must if you’re looking for holiday apartments for Holy Week in Seville. Another impressive building close to La Alameda is the Palacio de los Marqueses de la Algaba, a lovely historical palace that now houses the Centro de Arte Mudéjar de Sevilla.
If you book one of our holiday apartments in Seville in this central area, you’ll get a real feel for the city’s festive spirit, since this neighbourhood is famous for progressive rock and flamenco fusion. In fact, the band Alameda, with close ties to the famous Seville rock band Triana, took their name from the neighbourhood. The rock tradition is still very much alive, thanks to indie festivals such as Monkey Week Festival held on the Paseo de la Alameda. If you’re coming to Seville in November, don’t miss it!
If you want to go out for a drink, be sure to check out one of the cocktail bars such as Mogambo and Bohemia Bar, pop in to the LGTBI Nua Club or go to a live concert at the Jazz Naima Club. If it’s flamenco you're after, we recommend the Monasterio Flamenco Show. What better incentive to book your apartment in La Alameda in Seville?
