Springtime and Seville are two words which match perfectly. Although it is a city that is always worth visiting, Seville has “this special colour” in spring and there are very few things that are as beautiful as the sensation you have when walking along the banks of the Guadalquivir with the perfume of the orange blossom and the geraniums which abound in all the back streets of the centre. An experience which will enable you to disconnect for a few days from your everyday routine.
The people from Seville are well known for their love of “tapeo” on the terraces even in winter and there are areas in Seville that are even more alive and pretty at this time of the year, such as Alameda, one of those typical neighbourhoods where you can enjoy a well served ice cold beer, in the best Sevillian style. Have you chosen a Petit Palace hotel in Seville? If your answer is yes then you really must visit this charming area.
Situated next to the central streets of Trajano and Amor de Dios (two references of Easter week in Seville) and at less than five minutes walk away from the Plaza del Duque (famous for its exclusive shops, smell of incense and the fact that it is the city’s official meeting place), the Alameda has more than twenty bars, pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy many of the delights that Seville has to offer such as squid country style, bread with salmorejo (tomato sauce), ham or Russian salad.
Do you prefer to visit the area at night? A great decision! Such places as the Fun Club where you can have a excellent time in the best ambiance and with great music. Or maybe you prefer to enjoy a cocktail or a beer with the Andalusian stars as decoration in which case, without a doubt, the best two places to visit are Taberna Corto Maltes and also Bar Hefesto, a small place but with a natural terrace which gives you the feeling of being in a private garden.
A place to meet and also to eat, the Alameda has history and millions of anecdotes. In this domain, without going any further, a number of castings have taken place for well known films such as Grupo 7 or Carmen.
