  • The building had been the headquarters of the Lonja de Mercaderes de Sevilla, to give merchants a space where they could close business and settle their lawsuits.

  • It is a Renaissance work that mixes elements of regional art and whose materials mix marble, ceramic, exposed brick and tiles, which gives it a differentiating touch.


  • What makes it so special? On the one hand, its spectacular dimensions: the surface area of 50 thousand m2, its semicircular shape of 200 m2 in diameter and the artificial lake in its center.


  • The semi-elliptical form represents the arm of Spain with its colonies.


  • On the other hand, the symbolism: it seeks to represent each of the Spanish provinces. Each one corresponds to a bench, a tile, its shield, map and elements that distinguish it.


  • There should be 50 banks but there are 48, since at the time it was built, Tenerife was within the Canary Islands, so it has neither tiles nor its own bank. Furthermore, Seville is not represented independently and is present in other tiles.


  • Above each bench is the figure of someone considered illustrious in Spanish history.


  • As a color data, it has been the most expensive work of those destined for the Exhibition and up to a thousand workers have come to work.

La Casa del Flamenco-Auditorio Alcántara


All the strength of traditional Andalusian music

  • You will surely experience flamenco in various Sevillian corners as you walk through its streets. But don't miss the opportunity to attend a flamenco show at this tablao. Here you will enjoy the strength of this art.


  • As it has a reduced capacity, it is recommended to book in advance.


  • Flamenco is the quintessential folkloric expression of Andalusia. Its origins are related to the arrival of the gypsy community in the 15th century and fundamentally to the fusion of gypsy, Moorish and Christian styles that contributed various nuances.


  • This expression becomes popular, thanks to the singing cafes, considered the incipient origins of the current tablaos.


  • They were places of worship where singers and guitar met to enjoy dancing, stomping.


  • La Casa del Flamenco, in particular, is located in the inner courtyard of a 15th-century house-palace and offers a one-hour show with the simplicity that art does: enchantress, a guitar and two dancers.


  • The show takes place in the Alcántara auditorium, showing the most essential flamenco, an art declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.


  • Throughout history there have been transformations, however, the singer, the voice and the guitar remain as alive as in the beginning.


  • Despite being often considered a place prepared for tourists, the stage is one of the best places to enjoy this traditional show, since the interpreters show their own culture in a very close way.


  • It is not possible to visit Seville without absorbing and savoring something fundamental about its culture: music, which identifies and gives it its mark. And for this, the best option is to experience flamenco in one of its tablaos.


  • There are a variety of places that offer shows (some with dinners), mainly in the Jewish quarter.


  • We chose the Casa del Flamenco, located in Barrio Santa Cruz for the magical setting and the simplicity that exudes living the very essence of music.


  • The site and its privileged acoustics allow the voice and the instruments to be the true protagonists.


  • General admission € 18. Students under 26 and residents of Seville accredited € 15. Children from 6 to 12 years old € 10. Children under 6 years old are not allowed.

Puerta de Carmona


Witness of great civilizations and one of the most beautiful

  • The historical legacy of this town requires a quiet visit. We recommend arriving in the morning and visiting the Tourist Information Center first so that they provide you with all the necessary information. From there begin a quiet tour of its streets.


  • You can do one of the guided tours of Carmona, so as not to miss anything and take advantage of the time.


  • Do not forget to try its delicious cuisine, among the options we recommend the English cake, a puff pastry filled with cinnamon Angel hair and icing sugar. You should also try their crepes, one of the best in Seville.


  • Keep in mind that Carmona has been the scene of films such as the House of Bernarda Alba, Solas, Nobody knows Nobody.


  • Carmona is located just 28 km from Seville, to the east.


  • It is very unique for having been a fortified city that was part of civilizations such as the Phoenician, the Roman and later the Arab.


  • Due to its strategic location, it was the nerve center in Roman Hispania, and that is why its archaeological legacy and valuable remains is so great today.


  • It is located on an elevation of 235 m from the ground and this makes its layout more beautiful and offers better views of its surroundings.


  • Some places to visit: The Alcazar de la Puerta de Sevilla: built in Roman times as a defense, it is of Carthaginian origin and is located in the highest part. From there you will have wonderful views mixed with the historic walls.


  • Archaeological remains such as the Roman Necropolis from the 1st century BC, the Roman Theater and the Archaeological Museum.


  • Having been the protagonist of various cultures, in it you can find wonderful constructions from different times. In addition to the Roman remains, in Carmona there are mosques, churches from the Christian era and beautiful palaces from the medieval era.


  • Among the house-palace, the following stand out: the Carmona Palace House and that of Los Domínguez, today Public Library and Municipal Archive.


  • Cultural visits are offered along various routes such as the Betica-Roman route or an Artealia route, made up of four monumental villages around it.


  • We finish the 4-day tour with a full-day visit, to get to know and admire the beautiful surroundings and discover what Seville offers in its surroundings.


  • We go to one of the oldest towns that is located only 28 kilometers from the city and we know a place with more than two thousand years of history and many things to know, what better way to end, right?
