La Luisiana, a town of European settlers

La Luisiana is another of the newer towns in the province of Seville. It was created in the 18th century to prevent banditry on the road from Cádiz to Madrid. Its current inhabitants are descendants of the Germans and French who repopulated this area under King Carlos III. What began as a stop-off settlement is nowadays a town that will amaze you. 

Although different cultures have passed through these lands since ancient times, the Roman baths have been preserved to this day. It is said that the waters have therapeutic properties. 

The legacy of the European settlers is still very much alive in the cuisine, culture and festivals. That is why you have to discover this fascinating town in Seville’s La Campiña.

What to see 

La Luisiana is a very culturally diverse town. We recommend starting your route from the oldest to the most modern civilisations. 

Begin your visit at the Roman baths. Just three minutes on foot from the Town Hall, along Calle la Carolina, is Carrión Stream. Here you will find an archaeological site with three elements: a public washhouse, a Roman bath and the changing rooms. Just outside this area, you will see Los Borricos Fountain, dating from the 18th century.

Go to the Plaza Pablo de Olavide, with buildings dating back to the creation of the town, including the Town Hall, Casa de Postas and La Purísima Concepción Parish Church. This church was used as a hospital during the malaria epidemic that affected the town in the 18th century. 

Finally, visit the El Campillo hamlet, about four kilometres from La Luisiana. You can walk there in about 45 minutes. Once in this village, visit the Virgen de los Dolores Church and some of the houses in which the early settlers lived.
