This narrow alleyway is 3 metres wide and 20 metres long, if the section under the arch is not included, in which case it would be 25 m. This alleyway is of particular interest as a unique space within the urban fabric. It provides access to Plaza Cardenal Espínola and is one of the most charming and historical spots within the urban core.
The Pilar del Barranco is an old watering place for livestock. It is located in what used to be a gully or ravine, where several groundwater courses converge. The hole receives inflows from a mine that channels the water from Parpagón Alley.

A medium-sized alley next to the Santa Ana Parish Church. Its charm lies in its traditional structure, which consists of a series of brick arches against whitewashed walls. It is usually decorated with plants and pots cared for by the neighbours.
One of Osuna’s most beautiful streets is this steep street located at the foot of the baroque Merced Tower. The walk up the street, lined with buildings made with ashlars from Osuna’s quarries, leads to the Camino de la Buena Vista with excellent panoramic views of the town and Seville’s countryside.
The former Sevilla Street, with a gentle slope, runs parallel to the monumental and artistic San Pedro Street. Its perspective is unique. Overshadowed by the massive Collegiate Church, this street appears to begin at the fig orchard that surrounds this town’s main temple. At the other end of the street is the tower of the Espíritu Santo Church, behind which the sun sets every afternoon.
Osuna has the best-preserved historic centre in Andalusia. In fact, it was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1967.
This alleyway is located in the heart of Utrera’s historical centre. In the past, it was also used as a small gateway through the walls. A cross and a scallop shell, symbols of the Way of St James, grace the entrance to the alleyway. Its whitewashed walls, full of flower pots, take us back to another era.
