Located five minutes from Santa Justa train station with bus lines C1 and C2, and fifteen from the airport with those same lines and the airport-city center line: EA.
The apartment is located in front of the Roman walls of Seville, near the door of La Macarena. Entering this gate you enter the medieval city and we begin to see the Churches, (almost all in Mudejar style), old Palaces and Convents, popular houses, etc. In an atmosphere that reflects the personality of this city.
We recommend, before entering the door of La Macarena a walk through the ancient Roman walls of Seville. The base of these walls is Roman, but they are very modified with elements arabs.
The city was taken by the Arabs who came from Africa in the year 711 and were in it for 5 centuries leaving many traces in our architecture.
Conquered in 1248 by King Ferdinand III of Castile, who gave it its current organization, as it is divided into 27 parishes that can still be visited.
At the beginning of the walls is the prison where was martyred San Hermegildo in the V century during the Visigothic period of the city. At the end of the walk through the walls, if you look to the left you will see the Hospital of the Five Wounds (S.XVI), which is the Parliament of Andalusia.
And to the right, you will see the Macarena door. This is the gate we recommend as an entrance to the old city.
If you follow Calle San Luis, the first thing you should visit is the Basilica de la Macarena, where the image of the Virgin of the same name is venerated.
The next one is the Church of San Gil, built on an old mosque.
Along the way until you reach the Cathedral, you will know:
The Pumarejo Palace, now in ruins.
The Church of San Luis, in Baroque style.
The Church of Santa Marina, Mudejar style (Andalusian Gothic style).
The Church of San Marcos, Mudejar style.
The Convent of Santa Isabel.
The Convent of Santa Paula.
The Palace of Las Dueñas (residence of the Duchess of Alba)
The Church of Santa Catalina, Mudejar style.
And many other interesting things: old taverns like “El Rinconcillo” from the 18th century in the Plaza de Los Terceros.
This is the recommended route for the city center.
If you do not want to walk you can use the city buses C3 and C4 that make the round of the old city and you can leave it in the area that every day you want to visit.
In short, we believe it is a great choice for your holiday in Seville.

El apartamento era fantástico, muy limpio e igual que en las fotos, bastante espacioso y bien situado, la parada de bus y taxi a menos de 5 minutos. El wifi funcionaba perfectamente y la anfitriona, María, excelente. Nada más llegar la llamamos y nos entrego las llaves no tuvimos ningún problema.
Superbe appartement au 3em étage d’un immeuble calme, dans un quartier commerçant ( superette à 200m). Les lignes d’autobus se trouvent à 200m. Un très bon accueil, un super confort, 3 chambres, 2 salles de bains. Je conseil sans réserve.
Appartement bien équipé, lumineux et placé dans un quartier populaire au calme mais non loin du centre historique ( 15 min à pied de la cathédrale). Des taxis sont disponibles à 200 m sur la ronda. Tout était conforme au descriptif.
Great place! If you are looking for a Place with great location, safety, nice rooms and clean, this is your place. Maria was really nice and her son too. They gave us everything we need and more. I will definitely go back!
