Where to eat in the Arenal neighborhood


The neighborhood is to the west of the city, on the riverbank between the Torre del Oro and the old Puerta de Triana. It is an area of culture and tradition, where one enjoys opera, theater, bullfighting, brotherhood sentiment, and typical city restoration.

In the past, it was an area covered in sand that lay outside the walled zone of the city. It was the port area through which all the new products arriving from the Indies after the discovery of America entered the city.

In the Arenal, there are also the Arco del Postigo, a mythical place in the city, and the El Postigo Craft Market. In addition to the best tapas bars in Arenal, it is important to note that the Plaza de toros de La Maestranza in Seville is located in this neighborhood on the banks of the Guadalquivir River. With the same name, there is the Teatro de la Maestranza, where you can enjoy musical shows, dance, opera, and theater.

Arenal and the world of bullfighting are two things that always go hand in hand, especially considering that this neighborhood houses the bullring “La Maestranza” and is an exceptional area to enjoy tapas in the city.
