El Arenal District

El Arenal, Seville

The basics

The Seville Bullring (Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza de Cabellería de Sevilla) is a site of great importance to Seville, and features as a stop-off in many guided sightseeing tours of the city, along with the Royal Alcázar of Seville (Real Alcázar de Sevilla) and Seville Cathedral (Catedral de Santa María de la Sede). Other key draws for tourists in El Arenal are the 13th-century Torre del Oro watchtower, now a naval museum, and the baroque-style Hospital de la Caridad, where paintings by celebrated Spanish artists hang. El Arenal is also home to the celebrated Tablao Flamenco El Arenal. This 100-year old tavern attracts visitors after dark with its popular flamenco dinner shows.

Flamenco Show at Tablao El Arenal with Drink and Optional Dinne or Tapas
We really enjoyed this experience. The dinner (as well as the service) was very good, and there was more than enough time to thoroughly enjoy it. The flamenco show was excellent as well - the singers, guitar player, and dancers were all high quality - expressive, energetic, and talented. Definitely recommend!

The food was some of the best we had. The tapas were more than enough for sure. The show was very entertaining as well. Was a little sad we couldnt even take a photo for a memory though.

Flamenco Show at Tablao El Arenal with Drink and Optional Dinne or Tapas
We went to this Flamenco Show in Seville and loved it! We got the dinner option and it was amazing. The show was really authentic. The theater is not very big so we had a very good table in the front. We went with our 2 daughters 17 and 15 years old and they really enjoyed it as well. Sangria was excellent too.

Flamenco Show at Tablao El Arenal with Drink and Optional Dinne or Tapas
We really enjoyed the show and tapas! It’s not the type of performance we see often but it was a good experience for our family. You can tell that everyone on the stage was giving their 100% and wanted for the audience to feel the intensity and the passion of Flamenco!

Flamenco Show at Tablao El Arenal with Drink and Optional Dinne or Tapas
We were in Seville for my 50th birthday, sisters, daughters and nieces. We paid for the show and drink. We were sat by the stage and had a brilliant time. The musicians, singers and dancers were so talented. The performance was full of feeling and very exciting well worth the the money paid. When I visit Seville again I will definitely going back

When to get there

April is a great time to visit, with the festivities of the Seville April Fair (Feria de Abril) bringing a buzz to the neighborhood. Milder spring temperatures also make it more pleasant to explore than in the often sweltering heat of summer. With lots of tapas bars and rooftop terraces in El Arenal, it’s also a good destination for an evening out.

Seville Bullring

Built in the 18th century, Seville’s bullring is the oldest surviving in Spain, and many of the traditions of bullfighting were established here on its sandy surface. Visitors can explore the site and visit the on-site museum as well as the chapel and the infirmary where wounded matadors are treated. The most high-profile bullfights are hosted during the Seville April Fair (Feria de Abril), a weeklong event that typically takes place two weeks after Easter.
