The Corner House
, Alameda de Hércules, 11, Seville.
The Corner House is a brand new hotel in the heart of the historic part of Seville. Facing straight onto the Alameda de Hercules, it has a wide open aspect with trees, bars, restaurants and a slightly bohemian atmosphere.
The renovation of the building that created the hotel has been carried out with much care and enthusiasm. The result is a pleasingly eclectic mix of style, leaving tradition in the structure and overlaying it with modern furnishings blended with a few upcycled pieces. Colours are muted but not bland and the bed linens are top quality.
In a city with a strong gastronomic tradition, it's hardly surprising that food is high on the agenda at The Corner House. The restaurant and tapas bar El Disparate is on the ground floor. Here guests and non-residents alike can enjoy the flavours of the south.
The location in Alameda de Hercules is a little set apart from the intensity of the cathedral area yet it is only a 15 minute walk away. It's a leafy boulevard where the Sevillanos like to partake of their favourite pastime of "dando un paseo" (taking a stroll). All the major sights of Seville are within easy reach.
The El Disparate restaurant and tapas bar is situated on the ground floor with windows looking out onto the boulevard. The cooking has a fresh Mediterranean theme, using, wherever possible, the seasonal produce of Andalucia.
Breakfast is served from 8.30 to 12.30.
Out and About
Metropol Parasol. Sculpture on an epic scale, the Metropol Parasol is reckoned to be the biggest wooden structure in the world. Christened The Mushrooms by the locals, you'll find it in the Plaza de la Encarnación.
Santa Cruz. The ancient Jewish Quarter of Seville, you can still enjoy the mediaeval centre of the city lying on the banks of the Guadalquivir river.
Seville Cathedral. Built to demonstrate the wealth and power of Seville after the Reconquest, this is the largest gothic the cathedral in the world, the third largest church in the world, and the final resting plae of Christopher Columbus. Impressive.
The Alcázar. An impressive royal palace that was built originally for the Moorish kings of Al-Andalus. The palace is recognised as one of the most beautiful in Spain, and one of the best examples of Mudéjar architecture in the peninsula. It's also the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe and UNESCO world heritage site.
The Torre del Oro. Built in the early 13th century, the Torre de Oro is 12-sided military watchtower on the side of the Guadalquivir river. It's name "The Tower of Gold" comes from the golden sheen of it's outer walls, though the reality of the construction is somewhat more mundane ( a mixture of lime mortar and pressed straw).
Plaza de España. Here is the principal building dating back to the 1929 Expo, set in the Maríá Luisa plaza. All the provinces of Spain are represented on the tiled panels and the walls are decorated with sculptures of illustrious Spaniards from history. It's a very impressive building.
