Seville has historically been one of the great tourist destinations around the world, as confirmed by the prestigious publisher specialized in tourism. Lonely planet, leading the ranking of traveler preferences in 2018.
Seville has historically been one of the cities preferred by tourists from all over the world, because it has innumerable historical and artistic resources (El Alcázar, La Catedral, María Luisa Park, and so on.)
Seville is the result of the fusion between tradition and innovation that can be seen in its streets, in its people and – of course – in its gastronomy.
Walking in the streets of Seville
Precisely the Hotel Doña Lina is located in two of the most hihglighted landscapes of the city of Seville, such as the Barrio de Santa Cruz (in the center of the city). This old Jewish quarter is a wonderful space of narrow “alleys” and beautiful squares flanked by stately homes.
Every spring, the orange blossom conquers the streets of the Barrio de Santa Cruz perfuming it with a magnificent scent.
Walking through its narrow streets, we can reach El Alcázar in only a few minutes, an impressive palatial complex of Islamic art that reminds us of the medieval history of the city of Seville. (El Alcázar).
Also a few steps away we will find the Cathedral of Seville, the largest Gothic (late Gothic) cathedral in Europe with a multitude of plastic arts (paintings, sculptures, goldsmiths, etc .; Seville Cathedral). In it you will find the old minaret of the Muslim mosque that was located there before the arrival of the Christians in 1248, La Giralda.
Almost immediately, you will be able to see the majestic Archivo General de Indias (General Archive of the Indies). Seville since the conquest of America (16th century) has become one of the most important cities in Europe. The Spanish government of King Carlos III needed a space to collect each document and each commercial movement and each one related to new colonies (America and the Philippines); The General Archive of the Indies was created in the 18th century (1785).
The Avenida de la Constitución (Constitution Avenue), delimiting both the Seville Cathedral and the Archivo general de Indias, will drive you directly to the Seville City Hall. Its architecture will leave you perplexed, as it is in the Plateresque style (16th century). Its name is due to the silversmiths (jewelers) of the time, who recharged the works with numerous decorations (shields, pinnacles, figures, etc.).
We hope we have whetted your appetite to get to know our city. And what better way to do it than by staying in a building located in an area with as much cultural value as the Barrio de Santa Cruz.
And it is that the Hotel Doña Lina offers you the opportunity to stay in a charming hotel in the heart of Seville.
