Seville is one of Spain’s most beautiful and unique cities. It’s located in Andalusia, which is the best place for tapas in the whole world. Seville is a special place that combines the classics, modern culture of a Spanish city and a lot of Eastern influences from the Muslim world. If you are a visitor, a student or plan to live there, you might have some questions regarding the many districts and neighborhoods of Seville. Keep on reading for a breakdown:
Casco Antiguo is the wider center of Seville. Here you’ll find most of the historic and tourist attractions of the city here. The Alcazar, the Palace of San Telmo, and the UNESCO heritage city center. If you’re a tourist and only have a few days to send in the city, this is the place to be. It can be loud and hectic, but everything you want from the city is nearby. The University is also located in the south of the city center, so students might want to live here too, even though there are better spots if you plan on staying for longer. It should go without saying, but this is very expensive are.
Triana is as local and true to Andalusia is you can get. Just across the canal from the city center, you will find this neighborhood that used to be a village where flamenco dancers and bullfighters used to live. If you want to see what the real-life in Seville is like, you should consider staying here. It’s nothing fancy, but the vibe is authentic and you will be surrounded by locals. There is also the park and the river, which are great for walking around or a jog. The prices aren’t too bad, and the area is highly recommended for people that want to stay out of the busy center, but still want a lively area.
Feria, as the name suggests, is the party spot of Seville. If you are a student, or a visitor of the city that wants to have some fun, you want to situate yourself close to this neighborhood. Seville has a great nightlife, filled with locals, students and tourists. The streets are cobbled and narrow, making it a cute place to explore and have a drink at during the day too. You might want to avoid Feria if you’re older however, as this is a very noisy place and walking home at night can be adventurous.
As the name suggests, this neighborhood is located in the south of the city, just off of the city center. It’s unique in Seville, as the architecture here is more grand and Spanish, with the Muslim influences being noticeable. There is also a cool park in this district, so if you enjoy walking around those, consider living close to here. The south of the city is a nice part to live, and the more you move away from the center, the better prices you will get.
