Best for Chilling out - Expert review of Alameda de Hercules
The Alameda (mall) de Hercules is the largest open space inside the Casco Antiguo, and one of the most popular places to take the air on a sunny afternoon. It's basically a long, tree-lined promenade with pillars at either end (the ones at the southern end are genuine Roman pillars, topped by 16th century statues of Hercules and Julius Caesar).
Originally of yellow sand, the surface was completely replaced with sandy coloured paving in the renovation of 2006. Before that it had been a rather seedy area, and although it's now going upmarket, with lots of new hotels, restauraunts, bars and cafes, it still has more than a touch of the Bohemian about it, making it one of Sevill's liveliest nightlife spots.
