San Vicente neighbourhood

Seville San Vicente MapLocated in the north-west of Seville's historic centre, San Vicente is bordered by the Guadalquivir River to the west and Alameda de Hércules to the east and is home to some of Seville's best known churches and convents. Around the charming, orange tree-lined Plaza de San Lorenzo are the churches of San Lorenzo and the Basilica del Gran Poder - where you will find the moving and much revered image of Christ carrying the cross, known as Cristo del Gran Poder.

The monastery of San Clemente is said to be the oldest in Seville. It was founded in 1248 by Ferdinand III and is the final resting place of several members of royal families, including Maria of Portugal - the mother of Pedro the Cruel, who built the Alcázar. Convents in the neighbourhood include Santa Clara and Santa Rosalía.

One of the best tapas bars in Seville, with wonderful tapas at sensible prices and friendly service. It's quite small and very popular, so get there early for a place at the bar. Equally good restaurant (you'll need to reserve a table) next door.

La Azotea
Be there or be square! Not the cheapest tapas in town, but arguably some of the very best, and well worth that bit extra. Innovative menu, and very popular, so get there right at opening time, or you may miss out.
