Around the basilica of the macarena

In the vicinity of the Basilica of the Macarena in Seville we can take a walk through history and imagine how the city would be when it was walled off in its entirety, as it is in this area where this architectural item of such beauty is best preserved.

Directly opposite the beautiful basilica, with its majestic arch, there is a cafeteria with an impeccable retro feel (Bar Silver). It is worth pausing a moment to have a coffee and afterwards cross the avenue to venture down the calle San Luis where halfway down towards the centre we see old churches such as those of Omnium Sanctorum or San Luis de los franceses, whose facade is fascinating.

Historical monument of spanish heritage

The best preserved section (if not practically the only one) of the walled enclosure of Seville is located near the neighbourhood and the Basilica of the Macarena, on calle San Luis, between calle Becquer and calle Castelar.

The walls were built with limestone, sand and pebbles by the Almohads in the twelfth century. They were surrounded by a moat and were six kilometres in length, along which 166 towers, 12 gates and 3 shutters.

They were preserved perfectly until the nineteenth century, when it was decided to demolish them so that the city could expand. Currently, seven squares towers are preserved and one octagonal, as well as the popular Torre del Oro (Golden Tower), the Abd El Aziz, and another section in the Valley Gardens in the Alcázar area.

Curiously, it is indicated that Charles I made his entrance into Seville through the Puerta de la Macarena. The Seville city walls have been declared historical monuments of Spanish heritage since 1908.
