HOTEL MARQUES SANTA ANA
SURROUNDINGS OF THE HOTEL MARQUES SANTA ANA
Hotel Marqués de Santa Ana is in the Arenal neighborhood, between the Cathedral and
the Guadalquivir River. Just around the corner we find Cerverceria
Internacional, a bar boasting Sevilla's largest selection of beers
from around the world. Over 300 different kinds of brews can be ordered from their menu.
Two blocks from the hotel on calle Harinas is El Rincon del Pulpo Gallego,
famous for food from the region of Galicia, including octopus (pulpo) and cider from nearby Asturias.
The Plaza del Cabildo is a 5 minute walk from calle Harinas. The ornate
building and plaza hosts the Sunday morning collectibles market. Stamps,
coins, semi-precious stones and other collectable's are on sale.
We make our way towards the river and just on the corner of calle Arfe
is a famous churros stand: it is said to provide churros for
the King's breakfast when he is staying in the Alcazar nearby.
As we make our way down calle Dos de Mayo towards the river we look back for a view of the Cathedral.
At the end of calle Dos de Mayo we cross the main avenue and arrive at
the river walk along the Rio Guadalquivir. Here we see a statue
in tribute to Mozart, with the Torre del Oro in the background.
Following the river walk we find the Plaza de Toros, or bullring. We now have just a 5 minute walk back to the Hotel.
Just one block from the Hotel we find ourselves in the Plaza Nueva.
Just behind the Plaza Nueva is Plaza San Francisco and the Ayuntamiento, or town hall.
