Retail By City


city rank #108

City Overview

Seville is the capital city of the region of Andalusia and is the fourth largest city of Spain with a total of 700,000 inhabitants. The city is surrounded by many commuter towns and its metropolitan area comprises around 1.5 million inhabitants. Although the surrounding rural areas depend heavily on agriculture, the city and metropolitan area dispose of a more diversified economic infrastructure. The capital is service-oriented and hosts many government-linked institutions. Moreover, industry is important, with many food-related companies but there is also heavy investment in aircraft industry and new technologies. Furthermore, tourism is a significant economic driver.

In fact, Seville is one of the most touristic Spanish cities, ranking fourth on the list of number of visitors (2.5 million annually). Its historic town centre is its main tourist attractions and can be considered to be one of the most likable of Spain. The prime high street offer is located within the historic city centre, which has been progressively pedestrianized, and is located around the central Plaza Nueva square. The main High Street retail areas are calle Sierpes and the triangle of the calle Tetuán with O’Donnel and Velázquez. Due to the lack of availability, the prime area has been extended to Calle Rioja and the part of Plaza Nueva close to calle Tetuán. Furthermore, south of Plaza Nueva, the Avenida de la Constitución has become an important tourist and F&B street.

The shopping centre offer in Seville comprises a large list of complexes, although the peculiarity of Seville is that none of them is a large sized scheme. Inside the city of Seville the most important shopping centres are Nervión Plaza y Los Arcos; outside the city, the most important retail offer is located in the Aljarafe area, where Airesur is the most important retail complex. Several large scale shopping centre projects have been announced, of which Lagoh (Palmas Altas) is the most prominent, and may very well change the shopping centre infrastructure of Seville in the future. 

Things to do



Check out the main high street offer of the old city centre, notably the Plaza Nueva square, which hosts the tourist retail offer, calle Sierpes, with traditional stores and calle Tetuan and adjacent streets, where the prime fashion offer is located.


Get lost in the narrow medieval streets of the romantic Santa Cruz neighbourhood with its Andalusian ambience.

And be seen


For classic Spanish food, eat out at Casa Robles or Restaurante Egaña Oriza. Good “tapas” places are El Rinconcillo or Bodega Santa Cruz. The Lonja del Barranco is furthermore an appealing Food Market.


Enjoy the busy night life at the areas of Plaza Nueva and Paseo Colon. In summer, have a drink near the river at Casino and old Palace with open air terraces.

Be Merry

Do as the locals and live completely outdoors during the Holy week (March-April) or the Feria de Sevilla festival (April).
