Alameda de Hercules
Alameda de Hércules Address: Alameda de Hércules
The Alameda de Hercules was constructed in the 16th century as it was won from the wetlands of the nearby river Guadalquivir and became Europes biggest public park with monuments dedicated to hercules and Julius Cesar at the entrances.
Nowadays, modern fountains have been integrated the green park has been converted in a gigantic public square with a very lively atmosphere all day long.
If you are visiting the more typical touristic sites in Seville, this square is an urban oasis and a breath of fesh air as it is mostly visited by locals. In the afternoon the tapa circuit comes alive and the more the beer and wine flood, the more spanish and loudly it gets…this is where one can find the authentic Andalucian atmosphere which is each day harder to find.
There are endless bars and restaurants, so we recommend to change every beer and cross the square from terrace to terrace.
Check the local agenda as almost every week events are set up here; this can be a local flea or artisan market, a jazz or flamenco festival and more.
