Shopping in Sevilla
Seville offers a wide selection of shops for buying arts and crafts, clothing, leather goods, gifts, etc and its shopping districts are always full of people and activity. We recommend visiting the following areas:
- The Historic center, around La Campana and the pedestrian streets of Tetuán and Sierpes, which include traditional shops as ceramics, guitars, flamenco costumes, fans, embroidery, as well as modern shops of fashion, music, etc.
- Nervión, near the station of Santa Justa, contains several department stores.
- Los Remedios, on the other side of the river which skirts Triana, is the location of several boutiques.
The nearby town of Castilleja is famous for a wide range of desserts such as crumbles, tortes, sponge cake and home-made sweets such as Sweet Bread Fritters, Pestiños and Gañotes.
- The ceramics market based in Triana.
- The biggest open-air markets are those of the Plaza del Duque and the Plaza de La Magdalena, which sell leather work and costume jewelry. The most traditional event is held on Thursdays on Feria street.
The Alfalfa neighborhood, especially around the Cabeza del Rey Don Pedro Street and adjacent streets, contains a large number of antique shops and galleries which exhibit and sell contemporary art. The rest of the city's antique shops are located in the shopping district. In these streets the traveller can find a large number of stores for the purchase of art and antiques.
- The Antiques Fair is held every year in the old Plaza de Armas train station.
- Another opportunity for buying and selling antiques is the market held on Thursdays on the Feria Street.
