Fanning inland from the palm-lined eastern shore of the Guadalquivir River with its eastern edge bordering on Santa Cruz is Sevilla's emblematic Arenal district.
In a nutshell
This historically important barrio will quickly spark your interest with its wide range of things to see, do and experience. Its streets burst with personality, art, architecture, and energy. Not to mention that many of Sevilla’s famous Semana Santa brotherhoods are based in El Arenal. Be sure to take a walk through this area, just a ten-minute walk from the cathedral. Catch a bullfight, rent a pedal boat, spend a night at the opera, or explore the naval history of Sevilla inside the landmark Torre del Oro and more, all right here in El Arenal.
