SURROUNDINGS OF THE HOSTAL GENERALIFE
Hostal Generalife is located in the middle of the shopping district in the center of Seville.
Just a few doors down from the Hostal on calle Fernan Caballero is the last residence of
Sevillian painter Jose Garcia y Ramos.
Turning around we go to the left and walk down calle San Eloy, a pedestrian shopping street
in the middle of the commercial center of Seville.
One of many restaurants on calle San Eloy. This one serves breakfast,
lunch and dinner and is just a one minute walk from the hostal.
Turning the corner we leave calle San Eloy and find the Plaza de la Magdalena.
Most days of the week there is a local market in the plaza selling leather
bags, clothing and other items from Africa and Morocco.
El Corte Inglés, on the other side of Plaza Magdalena and just
a few minutes from the hostal. There is a large supermarket on the bottom
floor which is open from 10:00 to 22:00 hours.
We turn around in the direction of calle Rioja. Just to the right is a church: Iglesia Carmelitas Descalzas.
A view inside the church.
We arrive at the corner of calle Rioja and calle Tetuan in the middle of the shopping district.
Turning on calle Tetuan we take a right and find this old tile advertisement
for Studebaker automobiles. Calle Tetuan and Calle Sierpes (a parallel street)
are the most famous streets in the shopping district.
