More about El Callejon del Agua

Barrio Santa Cruz

by sandysmith

Barrio = area or neighbourhood and this area of Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter, was for me the most picturesque part of Sevilla and somewhere I shall look forward to returning to and exploring more of its colourful patio and squares and enjoying some al fresco tapas. Just enjoy exploring the narrow cobbled alleyways and the whitewashed houses with their colourful balconies and flowers.

Things to note especially are:
Callejon del Agua (Water Alley) which follows the Alcázar garden walls
Plaza Alfaro, surely inspiration for the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet
Plaza Santa Cruz with its intricate 17th-century wrought iron cross in the centre
Plaza Doña Elvira - lovely square with tiled benches and cafes around it
Plaza de los Venerables - with hospital of same name
Plaza de las Tres Cruces - triangular square with three crosses on columns

A couple of questions?

by aussiebrian

Gooday everyone,

Well our trip in may is getting closer and i just need a few more tips if you can help.

We are travelling with another couple and have booked into the Hotel Regina in Sevilla near the isla majica. Will it be difficult to get to the Santa Cruz area from there? Can you safely walk or can you get buses. What is parking like downtown?

From past postings we will be going to Corral del agua for dinner and to La Carboneria for flamenco. Are these easily accessable from where we will be staying?

We have the option of hiring a citroen picasso or xsara. I have seen the xsara in Australia but not the picasso. As we will be travelling a fair bit in the car we want to be comfortable. We will also have 4 suitcases. Which would you choose?

Finally, without starting a bull fighting debate again, is there bullfighting in Sevilla at the time we are there. we arrive on the 27th May and leave on the 29th May.

Thanks in advance for your help once again.

Isla Magica is an area outside the old centre of Sevilla, in "La Cartuja" island. To get to Santa Cruz from there, you better take a taxi. Walking would be about 45 minutes... You have a street finder at:

La Carboneria is in Barrio de Santa Cruz, near the Mercedarias Convent. From your hotel you'll better take a taxi, specially at night!

Corral del Agua is in the Callejon del Agua, by the Alcazares, in the same area.

As for the bullfightings in Sevilla, there will be bullfights on the 23rd May and 6th June, but none in between I'm afraid. You can look at the dates here:

Enjoy Sevilla!!

The citroen picasso is a mini-van. If you are 4 persons with 4 suitcases you should choose this one.

Why don't you have a look at the citroen-website. Here in Germany it's www.citroen.de.

Enjoy your trip - you'll love Sevilla. And if you have the time visit Cordoba and Granada as well.

There are bullfights scheduled in Cordoba the three days that you will be in Seville. It is a very short train ride from Seville using the AVE (fast train).

Enjoy Andalusia.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

PALACE OF SAN TELMO

by LoriPori

The architecutural style of the PALACE OF SAN TELMO is Neo-classical and it used to be the residence of the Dukes of Mompansier. On the death of the only heir, their daughter Maria Luisa, the Palace was donated to the Archbishop so that the Seminary could be installed there.
The Gardens were donated to the Seville Town Council and were turned into a park which today bears the name MARIA LUISA PARK.
Today the Presidency of the Autonomous Government of Andalucia is installed in the building.

Alfalfa Market

by agarcia

Even if your interest about animals is only collateral, visiting the colorful pet market of Alfalfa Square is a powerful and intense experience that I strongly recommend. The combination of the bustling activity of the market, along with the soft spot I have for animals, made it one of my fondest memories from Sevilla. The market takes place every Saturday morning.

You can check out some snapshots of the market in my travelogue

TWO PIN ELECTRICAL PLUG

by MaheshSamtani

If you happen to carry any electrical stuff like hair dryers or just a simple charger for your mobile telephone - you will have to take into account that the electrical systems admit only the 2 pin round plug as shown in the picture. If you are coming in from Britain you might want to buy an adapter to be able to use your stuff in Spain. It may be a little difficult to get it in any normal electrical store. If you happen to have a El Corte Ingles department store near you - they sell adapters for different systems.
The Spanish system is compatible with most European plug sockets – except mainly for the British 3 pin plug - so get that adapter.

Be part of the local atmosphere

by swedishanna

This is if you like football....

If you are in Sevilla during football season and you like the sport, try and go to one of the games. It has an amazing atmosphere and if you want to learn Spanish expressions to throw at the ref...well you'll learn a lot during 90 minutes!!!
If you go and see a game in April/May time you will enjoy the evening sun while watching football eating pipas (sunflower seeds) and bonding with the locals. I have no idea about the Betis stadium, as I'm a Sevilla supporter, but at the Sanchez-Pijuan stadium you can often get tickets on the day (normally available a week ahead though) though this obviously depends on who they are playing and when in the season you go.

While you are there, go to Sevilla FC shop and pick up some different souvenirs (they have a shop in city centre nowadays too) or buy a scarf from one of the stands around the stadium before kickoff (cheaper!). There are loads of tapas bars etc nearby, not to mention Nervión shopping centre, so there are plenty of restaurants and bars you can get some tapas and beer before and after the game.
Bus 23 from Plaza Nueva is the easiest and fastest way to get there, or you can take Bus 5 from Plaza de Cuba. Though walking up Avenida Eduardo Dato will only take you about 20 minutes from the Santa Cruz barrio edge (Jardines de Murillo).
