San Nicolás del Puerto Puente de Piedra

Sevilla enamora

This street runs along the former drovers’ road that once connected Gines with other nearby villages and the city of Seville. The most iconic building on this street is the mansion known as Hacienda de Liendo or Hacienda de Torrenueva.

The Confraternities of the Sacramental and of Our Lady of El Rocío have their seats on this street. Both buildings are modern constructions. 

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. 

The centre of the Osa Valley, next to the River Villa, which is hidden from the view of passers-by, is of more recent construction, from the 15th to the 18th century. This area is made up of wider streets, adapted to the flat area, and which reveal the economic power of the landowners, merchants and industrialists of the time.

The placement of some ashlars appears to indicate the tower was initially part of a building intended as housing. Today it is a free-standing tower.

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.
