It is well known that when you come to Seville you have to make a stop at El Rinconcillo, not only because of its tradition but also because it is the oldest and most anecdotic bar in the city.
Its location in the historic and cultural center, makes it easy to stop at it and it becomes irresistible not to rest between its walls and melting to the pleasures of good food, good drinking and good atmosphere. But before the break, I’m sure you like to take advantage of the hours and do not know what to do before visiting us, so we propose three plans near El Rinconcillo, which will serve to whet your appetite and enjoy the excellent city that is Seville.
The first visit, highly recommended is the Palacio de las Dueñas, a place that will transport you to another era. Its name is given by the missing monastery of Santa María de las Dueñas, it was built between the XV and XVI centuries and belongs to the Casa de Alba. This complex and grandiose complex will not leave you indifferent with its Gothic-Mudejar style until the Renaissance. If you plan to visit it, we recommend that you visit its official website, www.lasduenas.es, where you can see a map of the visit, its history or even buy the tickets.
The second option revolves around the Plaza de Los Terceros. From the intersection of Bustos Tavera Street and Sol Street emerges this small and charming square full of trees and with a large influx and movement of people for its environment. In it, if you are a lover of the letters, you will find two bookstores that are few, the “Librería Los Terceros”, specialized in history of America and Seville, and the Bookstore “A.Castro”, which makes available to the public numerous discontinued books, engravings and first editions of Spanish Literature. In short, two stores full of charm of which there are few.
Our last proposal is very suitable if you go with children, it is an environment that emerges from the earth to the sky, the architectural complex of the Metropol Parasol, or also known as Las Setas de Sevilla. With five levels, it houses a different room on each floor, the Antiquarium Museum, the Encarnación market and restaurants, a leisure plaza for Sevillians and visitors and on the top floor, a spectacular view overlooking the old town from the city. As they define it on their website, www.setasdesevilla.com, a place with views, culture and entertainment.
With these three plans, we are sure, that you will enjoy a great time and they will help you to open your appetite to try our famous codfish, an excellent dish of ham or our well-known spinach with chickpeas, as well as to enjoy again a place with much charm as is our “Rinconcillo”.
