The Guadalquivir River nearly bisects the town of Sevilla in half. It is the second longest river in the country whose entire length is in Spain. It flows from Cazarola mountain range to the Gulf of Cadiz. It is also the only navigable river in Spain.
The river is a pleasure to walk along in Sevilla. The City has done a good job of providing very wide pedestrian walkways as well as separate bike routes along the river. On any given day you can see a flurry of activity on the river beginning at about the Alamillo Bridge and going to old town. You are likely to see touring boats, kayaks, and crew rowers practicing for games. There is a great deal of shade along most parts of the river so the direct sun is not much of a problem. In the evening the riverfront is a popular area for strollers.
Went on a good walking tour recommended by maranyc

Walking around the old town where the streets can be very narrow and can be enjoyable if you have an understanding of where you are going because it can be confusing at times.
