For tourists, the Seville sightseeing bus is another way to see the main monuments of the city comfortably. The bus stops near the Torre del Oro and has two buses, each with room for one wheelchair.
In Seville, the main attractions are located in the city center, so taxi rides are typically short.

You can either hail a taxi from a designated taxi rank or stop one on the street.

Barrio de Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz neighborhood)
The Barrio de Santa Cruz is a neighborhood in Seville, Spain known for its narrow, labyrinthine streets and historic architecture. It was once the Jewish quarter of the city and is now home to stately homes, courtyards, and plazas, such as Santa Cruz Plaza, where the remains of the famous painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo are located.
The Callejón del Agua, a street next to the city wall and parallel to the Real Alcázar Gardens, is a must-visit for its historical significance. Other charming alleys in the neighborhood include the alley of the Jewish Quarter, connecting Vida Street and the Patio de Banderas, and the small barreduela connecting the Plaza Virgen de los Reyes and the Plazoleta de Santa Marta.
Visitors are encouraged to explore the neighborhood and get lost in its charming streets.
It is probably the most special neighborhood of Seville, famous for its history, its idiosyncrasy and its significance.
This population center on the right bank of the river Betis (Roman name of the Guadalquivir), served the Roman legions to establish a camp, near Italica and in front of Híspalis. It was the Almohads who built the first bridge linking it to the city, a bridge of boats located where today is the famous Triana Bridge.
In the XV and XVI centuries, Triana was present in those maritime expeditions that aspired to know new worlds. Its School of Seafarers instructed many sailors of the time who took part in voyages such as the arrival of Christopher Columbus in America or the Round the World Voyage of Magellan and Elcano, whose departure also took place from these shores. In the Plaza de Cuba, a sphere marks the zero mile of the first circumnavigation of the Earth.
And history has also left its dark chapter. The Castle of San Jorge was the scene of the fearsome persecutions of the Inquisition. Today you can visit its remains and learn about its history under the Triana Market.
But, Triana has much to discover in every corner, in the courtyard of a tenement house, in a bar or a store of all life. If you come to Triana, you will travel to a neighborhood, above all, authentic.
The first thing you notice when you take your first steps in Triana is that it has its own identity, the result of being a neighborhood born on the other side of the river. This separation that marks the Guadalquivir River with Seville has not prevented, however, that Triana has provided many of the main signs of identity of the city. Unmistakable features such as ceramic art or flamenco art have their germ in Triana. And it is no coincidence that in both cases we speak of "art".
Triana is the birthplace of a large number of flamenco artists (great guitarists, singers and tonadilleras have been born or raised here), famous bullfighters, famous potters, historic sailors .... Surely this neighborhood has the natural capacity to inspire you.

Bodeguita Reyes Antonio Romero, one of the best options where to eat in Seville cheap and good.
In the heart of Seville, a few meters from the Maestranza Bullring, is the Bodeguita Reyes Antonio Romero, an excellent tapas bar, affordable, very tasty and with good service. It is the youngest of the four bodeguitas Romero that exist in Seville (all great). In this particular case, it is a very cozy and modern bar, ideal for a more informal drink.
We have been there several times and we always order the same thing: the piripí, the sevillano (one of the star dishes), the tortilla de patatas, the pimiento relleno de bacalao or the berenjena rellena (stuffed eggplant). You can eat tapas (they cost around 2.50 euros) and the quality is excellent. It is usually quite full, so it is advisable not to arrive too late because you may run out of room.

One of the most charming restaurants in Seville (and also one of my favorites) is Castizo, a place located in the heart of the city, a few meters from the Triana Bridge and the Maestranza bullring. It belongs to the same group of restaurants as Torres y García (which we have also included in this article) and is a bet for traditional dishes with an original touch.
The place is very nice and the presentation of the dishes is impeccable. You can order both tapas (between 3 and 5 euros) and portions, which can be shared if there are several of you. Some of our favorites: the patatas bravas, the shrimp montadito with aioli, the boneless grilled chicken, the mini serranito or the whole fried onion with cream cheese from Ronda. The value for money is excellent and is around 15 euros per person.
