The city hall of Seville presides over this great avenue and has the Plaza de San Francisco behind. From this point you can contemplate the other facade of this 16th century building. It is the first Plateresque style made in Spain.
Santa Cruz neighborhood.
You can’t miss this magnificent neighborhood; The Santa Cruz neighborhood. Walking through its narrow and labyrinthine streets will transport you in time. It will be a magical experience where it will appear to the essence of Don Juan Tenorio.
During the walk you will discover emblematic sites such as the Palacio de los Pinelo and the Hospital de los Venerables. You will also reach the famous Mateos Gago street, from where you can see an idyllic picture of the Giralda. The Patio de Banderas, the Plaza de Santa Cruz itself or the picturesque Callejón del Agua are other points of interest in this area.
This neighborhood formed the old Jewish quarter of Seville next to the current neighborhood of San Bartolomé. Even so, Seville was the second most important Hebrew community in Spain at the time of Ferdinand III. Today you can contemplate its mark in this unique area.

Tower of Gold.
Located on the left bank of the Guadalquivir River, next to the Maestranza bullring, the two located on the Paseo Colón. It is an Almohad tower that closed the passage to the Arenal through a section of wall, which linked it with the Torre de la Plata, forming part of the walls of Seville that defended the Alcazar. It was used as a chapel and later as a prison, currently houses the Naval Museum of Seville. The false legend tells that its name is given because it was a store of gold and silver in America. It was called Torre del Oro since the Almohad era because of the lime and straw mortar product shine, and its reflection in the river.
From the neighborhood of Triana you can admire the river from the Isabel II Bridge (from the Eiffel school), or its bridge from the river, or from Betis Street, and of course tapas in any of the new and old premises of the surroundings.
You must keep in mind that to enter Triana is to do it on Castilla Street, where at one of the extremes is the Minor Basilica of one of the Christs with the greatest devotion of the Seville Holy Week: “the Puppy”. Very close to its Church, the bar ‘Sun and shadow’ feeds its fame with its home cooking, its seafood and its exquisite Chacina de la Sierra de Huelva.
