Alameda This area is considered by many to be the up-and-coming trendy, bohemian area in Seville, this open space in the very centre of Seville has undergone huge refurbishment and many beautiful old buildings and private houses have been restored to their prior glory. There is a great variety of bars and restaurants and a promenade type area where kids can play safely or where visitors can just take stroll.Many Alamo trees grow here, giving the place part of its name - Alameda. There are two giant Roman pillars, one of which bears a statue of Hércules, who according to the legends, was the founder of Seville. The oldest church of Seville, El Omnium Sancotrum on Calle Feria is a couple of minutes away and is beside the fresh produce market. Great place to get your food and to sample some of the local products as there are bars scattered around the market all serving freshly made tapas!
