Youralternative and historical hangout.
Alameda is a long plaza lined with restaurants and bars. It's home to the alternative scene.
The square erupts at night. Young Sevillanos flock here for botellón. That's when you sit outside for a drink and a chat with friends. It's a sight to see. Expect impromptu music performances. Why not join in?
If it's an original Andalusian bar you seek, go straight to Calle Feria. This historic street is also known for the Jueves Street Market. It's held every Thursday.
What can I do here?
Alameda is for people of all ages, at all times of day.
In the plazas, you'll find play areas and bars next to each other. So if you have children, you can enjoy a sunny afternoon with your friends and family without letting your kids out of sight. Clever, eh?
Alameda plaza also hosts medieval fairs and open-air concerts. Feel like dancing? This is the place to bring your friends – you can find everything from jazz clubs to bars playing '80s classics until sunrise.
If you're a fan of fusion food, take a walk down Calatrava Street. It's packed with fabulous restaurants.
At the southern end of the plaza there are 2 Roman columns. Hercules stands on one, Julius Caesar on the other. Local myth says Hercules founded the city. He arrived on the banks of Seville and began the first Phoenician trading post. Legend!
