Shopping tour in the centre of Seville
A fantastic plan is to stroll around the centre of Seville, stop at a bar for tapas with a cold beer and then go shopping.
- Calles Sierpes and Tetuán (large chain stores, books and some traditional)
- Calle José Gestoso and surroundings (more traditional and alternative)
- Alameda and surrounding streets (vintage, second-hand, hippie…)
- Calles Cuna and Francos (variety, tradition, crafts…)
- Calle Carlos Cañal and surrounding areas (independent boutiques)
- Plaza del Cabildo (antique dealers and numismatics)
- Triana Market and surroundings (delicatessen and ceramics)
Seville’s shopping centre can be reached on foot, so the most interesting shopping area can be covered in a short time. However, this does not mean that there is little to choose from. There is a wide variety of shops of all kinds so you can find a good souvenir of the city or expand your wardrobe. Shopping in Seville is a pleasure and there are constantly new openings, changes and novelties that try to give a twist to the city’s shopping scene and seduce the visitor, whether with international brands or Andalusian proposals.
Shopping is so much more with the nice weather, the sunshine and the pleasant temperatures in Seville. You stroll around, you see the people in the street and you are entertained by the street shows. It’s much more fun than going into a shopping centre. Even if it’s cold, it’s no problem. Seville has mild winters and it’s a pleasure to stroll through the streets with the smell of roasted chestnuts or churros.
The shopping streets of the centre of Seville
The city’s nerve centre, La Campana, is the perfect starting point so as not to miss a single shop. Next door, in Plaza del Duque, is El Corte Inglés, where you’ll find everything you need. Another good place to start is the Plaza Nueva, from which large shopping streets depart.
Sierpes and Tetuan
Calles Sierpes and Tetuan are broad, bustling pedestrian streets with many shops. You will find the best-known fashion brands such as Mango, Zara, H&M, Stradivarius, Mary Paz, Calzedonia, Bershka, Massimo Dutti, etc.
There are also several traditional Sevillian shops such as the Bolsos Casal store, with leather bags of varied, modern designs and at a very good price, or the Sabina accessories store, which despite being a very small place has everything, very tastefully arranged by colour. Sabina’s beautiful tiles are very striking.
There are also cosmetics stores such as BodyBell, Sephora, and Yves Rocher; telephone stores, crafts and accessories.
Parallel to Calle Sierpes is Calle Cuna, known by Sevillians as the street of accessories and weddings. If you’re looking for a spectacular headdress, a groundbreaking dress or the dress of your dreams as a bride, you won’t have to look far, as the best brands are clustered there. There are also very good fabric and flamenco dress shops.
Little streets full of surprises
Arriving at the Plaza del Salvador, there is Calle Córdoba, which connects with Calle Cuna and Plaza del Pan. It is known as the street of shoe shops. If you are looking for wedding shoes, sandals or boots, all you have to do is stroll along this street and go into one of its shops, such as La Mallorquina, Calzados Paco Rodríguez, Roberto Garrudo, etc.
Calle Puente y Pellón, close to the abovementioned street, runs from the Plaza del Pan to Encarnación, with traditional commerce and offers. It is somewhat decadent but has improved in recent years, with establishments such as Oro Blanco, Don Regalón, La Casa de la Salud, and Casa Lucio grocery stores, among others, standing out.
Calle Francos, a traditional shopping street that is now in decline, runs from the Plaza del Pan to the Cathedral, where there are traditional and specialised shops, such as Casa Velasco (haberdashery), Casa Rodríguez (military goods), Cordonería Alba, etc., with the Peyre shopping centre, a renovation of the most traditional fabric warehouses in the city, standing out.
Other shopping spots in Seville
Ceramics in Triana
Seville is famous for its ceramics, so if you’re looking for beautiful pieces for your home, head straight to Cerámica Triana. Instantly recognisable, the front of the shop is made of a stunning ceramic mosaic. Inside, you’ll find unique tableware, vases, custom-made pieces, and coffee sets that you won’t find anywhere else. We love their nice dishes and tapas bowls.
Shopping at the Triana Market
Just across the Guadalquivir River from the historic centre, Triana is Seville’s most colourful and artistic neighbourhood. Traditionally a gypsy neighbourhood and one of the birthplaces of flamenco, it has its own distinctive character, excellent tapas and a lively market still frequented by local “trianeros”. The stalls, brimming with fruit and vegetables, fish, and meat, and its small bars are worth visiting. The market is actually built on the remains of the castle of San Jorge, the seat of the Spanish Inquisition in the fifteenth century.
This multilevel bookstore near the Mushrooms of Seville sells thousands of books, including non-fiction, novels, comics, travel guides and art. On the ground floor, there is a small café selling hot drinks, juices and snacks for breakfast.
