WHERE TO GO SHOPPING IN SEVILLE
If you are going shopping in Seville, set aside a full day to explore the many beautiful shops. Here is everything the heart can desire of beautiful dresses, elegant looking shoes and lots of souvenirs.
Take your time to stroll around and explore the small shops around town – or use the guide here!
BEST SHOPPING STREETS IN SEVILLE
In the old city around the beautiful cathedral, you will find a myriad of small streets with the most beautiful shops! Start in the two parallel streets Calle Sierpes and Calle Tetuán. Here you’ll find women’s and men’s clothing, shoes, ceramics, jewelery, postcards and souvenirs. The streets here are covered with large sails so you can shop in peace from the scorching rays of the sun.
If you love dresses, the smaller street Calle Cuna will be a paradise. Here you will find both wedding dresses and party dresses next to stores with the latest fashion. If you are looking for a flamenco dress, visit Lola Azahare‘s beautiful shop in number 31.
The city has a surprisingly large selection of fabric stores, so if you are a sewing bee, then pack your suitcase lightly so you have room to take a lot of fabric home. The selection of fabrics is especially aimed at being able to supply material for the many beautiful flamenco dresses, so here you will find strong colors, flowers and lots of polka dots. And then it’s cheap!
The fabric shops are located all over the city, but especially in and around the street Calle de Chapineros. Here you just have to visit the small fabric store Almacenes Velasco on Calle Francos, 30. For nine meters of polka-dot fabric, it was only €7! Galerías Madrid, located a little further north, is a larger fabric store, which has the entire upper floor filled with dotted flamenco fabric.
If you need a very special souvenir to take home, take a look at the fantastic little paper art shop MASPAPELES on Calle Zaragoza. For Trine, who makes a living selling paper art at Lou Noire, it was an amazing visit to the little treasure chest. Here you will also find paper clips, handmade notebooks, unique writing tools and gift wrapping.
SHOPPING MALLS IN SEVILLE
If you can’t get enough of shopping, there are several large shopping centers in Seville, where you can enjoy the air-conditioning while shopping in all the well-known high street stores: H&M, Zara, Mango, Massimo Dutti and Bershka. You can visit the two largest that are closest to the center: Los Arcos at the northeast end of Seville and Nervión Plaza a 15-minute walk away.
Seville also has several branches of the department store El Corte Inglés, where you can find electronics, home furnishings, clothes, perfume and a gourmet supermarket.
OPENING HOURS IN SEVILLE
Most shops are open from 9.30 am – 2 pm and then again from 5 pm – 8 pm. El Corte Inglés is open all day from 10 am – 10 pm. Saturday all shops are closed in the evening, and most stores, except the very large ones, are completely closed on Sunday.
WHAT TO BUY AT HOME?
Clothes, clothes and more clothes – and then a pair of shoes! The Spanish women love to dress beautifully and you will find many shops with party dresses, wedding dresses and everyday clothes. There are a lot of euros to be saved on buying your cocktail dress or party dress in Seville.
Finally, also visit the large market hall Mercado El Arenal at the bullring or the large gourmet supermarket downstairs at El Corte Inglés, where you will find jamón, olive oil and sardines.
FIND A GREAT HOTEL IN SEVILLE
Seville is a surprisingly inexpensive city when it comes to hotel prices. You can get a lot of value for your money when on holiday in the Andalusian city. The old medieval part of Santa Cruz in the center of the city is the most expensive area. Here you are within walking distance to sights and shopping. In the northern part of the city you can find many cheap hotels, hostels and apartments.
It is highly recommended to find an air-conditioned hotel if you want to sleep well at night! Here you get recommendations for good hotels in Seville, all of which can be booked directly through Booking.com. See more hotels by doing your own search here:
A HOTEL RIGHT BY THE RIVER AND THE RESTAURANTS
The first time we were in Seville, in 2018, we stayed at Hotel Gravina 51 in the beautiful, old city center and close to the river Guadalquivir. At Hotel Gravina 51 you sleep in the most beautiful rooms, decorated in Moorish style and with cool tiles and dark shutters to take the worst of the heat.
You can also relax in the small atrium courtyard with the rippling fountain or enjoy the cooling breeze by the river, which is within walking distance. In the other direction, but just as close, you will find many good restaurants. Read more here: Hotel Gravina 51
A HOTEL OVERLOOKING THE HIP ROOFTOP BAR OF LA GIRALDA
In 2021, we came past Seville again. This time, Rune decided to spoil his girlfriend and accommodated us on the amazing Fontecruz Sevilla Seises. Hotel Gravina 51 is nice – but La Seises, as it is also called, is just something completely unique.
From the hip bar on the roof terrace – with a pool! – you can look directly over at the cathedral La Giralda. The rooms in what was in the 17th century the palace of the archbishop are sparsely furnished so that the beautiful high vaulted rooms can shine in their own simple beauty. But the building is even older, because in the basement you will find the foundation of a Roman ruin with a well-preserved mosaic.
At Fontecruz Sevilla Seises you live as centrally as possible. When you step out the door, you are in the restaurant street Calle Segovia, and if you turn right, you enter the narrow, old streets, where small shops are located side by side. Read more here: Fontecruz Sevilla Seises
A LOVELY APARTMENT FOR A FAMILY
In 2022, we were in Seville for the third time. This time we had Ivan with us and thus needed an extra room. We ended up finding the best apartment right on Torro del Oro, the big tower by the river. In addition to the bedroom and a room with a single bed, there was also a sofa bed in the living room. In addition, a toilet with a bath and a kitchen with dining area.
Although the apartment was nice and newly decorated, it was not the best thing about this place: the apartment is located right next to the smaller tower, Torre de la Plata. From our large, enclosed terrace there was a direct view up to the tower – but noone could see us eating ham and cheese in the morning sun.
Well, but the terrace was neither the best thing about the apartment either: Right in front of the door is the bus stop where the bus to the airport stops. If you are only in Seville on a short visit, the location is nothing short of brilliant. From the bus stop to the airport it’s only just over half an hour.
