In this tour we will get to know the northern part of the historical city.
The Arc of the Macarena was one of the gates of the ancient Islamic Wall. From this entrance to Seville the San Luis Street leads us into the old city. During the visit we will see the Macarena Church, the San Luis Church, the Market of Feria Street, the Mudejar Art Center, Alameda de Hercules, etc… These are churches and civil architecture that make up one of the most popular neighborhoods.
The Macarena Church is home to one of the most venerated Virgin Mary´s images in the Seville Easter Week. Next to the church we will find parts of the old Wall and the Andalusian Parlament. The neighborhood is near the Barqueta Bridge which was the entrance to the 1992 exposition and is now the entrance to Isla Magica (and amusement park).
