Seville enchants

The Mañara Palace is a palatial house in a basically Renaissance style. The illustrious philanthropist Miguel de Mañara, promoter and benefactor of the Brotherhood and Charity Hospital, was born in the palace. It is located in the centre of the former aljama or old Jewish quarter of Seville, which included the area between the Alcazar and the vicinity of the Carmona Gate.

The Tablao Álvarez Quintero is an authentic and original flamenco stage in Seville, located in an 18th century house at the foot of the Giralda. Its walls house great tradition and artists who convey their feelings on stage.

La Casa del Flamenco is located in the heart of the Barrio de Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter, a charming labyrinth of cobbled streets and silence, a few metres away from the Giralda.

The former residence of Otto Engelhardt is named Villa Chaboya after the hill on whose slopes it stands.

The 18th-century former Barrack-Garrison and Parish House are noteworthy examples of civil architecture in Peñaflor. 

Its layout is typical of the houses at that time, with a central courtyard and two floors. The upper level has a gallery that is used to distribute the rooms.

This 18th-century stately, civil building was once the seat of Osuna’s courthouse. As the inscription on the portal shows, it was built in 1738.

The Palace of the Counts of Castellar, which holds the Town Hall, was built between the 15th and 16th centuries. However, it was reduced to rubble in 1977.
