Updated: 9 February 2017
Once a down-and-out district that was best avoided, La Alameda has now turned into one of Seville’s hippest and trendiest barrios. Situated around the long thin Plaza Alameda de Hércules, lying to the north of the center, it’s now home to funky art gallery cafés, chic bars, restaurants, and vintage boutiques.

Where to Stay

Patio de la Alameda

Housed in a 19th-century mansion, this cute hotel is set around a plant-filled patio. It offers colorful old-fashioned style rooms with wrought iron beds and bold-patterned soft furnishings. It also has a chill-out terrace with gorgeous panoramic views.

Where To Eat

Zero Tapas Bar

If anything is a clear indication that an area has become trendy, it’s Nikkei – fusion Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. Both rustic, yet chic, at Zero Tapas Bar you’ll sit on a range of mismatched chairs and tables and enjoy tangy ceviches, innovative nigiris and succulent tuna wraps.
