La Alameda is a garden square and mall situated in the Spanish city of Seville. The oldest public garden in Spain having been built in 1574, La Alameda fell somewhat into disuse for a while in the 20th century. But it was rejuvenated somewhat around 2006-2008, with kiosks, benches, trees and fountains added to the two Roman columns the square is known for. The area which was once a meeting place for the upper classes is now neighboured by nightclubs and bars.
The square is situated in the northern area of the city centre. It is within a walking distance of the major transport hubs. The closest bus stop is ‘Alameda de Hercules’, which is accessed by the 13, 14 and A7 buses.
Opening Times and Admission
The square is a public square, it is open all day every day and access is unrestricted.
