  • Cute little place, but it could not be otherwise. Because the square is exactly between two of the most magnificent sights of Seville. Don't go past her.

  • Large square between the Cathedral and the Alcázar Real, Plaza del Triunfo is a crossroads extremely passing and, therefore, a great meeting point. It is also from this place that starts most of the rides in horse-drawn carriages.

  • It is a place not to be missed in the city! One of the best-known squares and is very close to several attractions.

  • The center of town! Flanked by the Cathedral and Alcazar. Crowded, but public toilets in the tourist building,not office but to the left in the next entryway under the flags
  • Nice little spot to watch the world go by
  • This is one of the most beautiful plazas in Seville. It's not grand or large but the buildings surrounding it are fantastic and there is always someone playing music.
  • Popular meeting place for school groups
  • Nice to see. You can chill there but there is lots of traffic around. A bit noise I think.

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
