Districts and Neighbourhoods of Seville

Seville’s top districts and neighbourhoods

Seville is one of the most historic cities in Spain. The Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Christians have all paraded through the capital of the Guadalquivir and they have certainly left their mark on the urban physiognomy of a city that today has about 700,000 inhabitants. After undergoing various improvements throughout history, Seville is currently divided into 11 districts and 108 neighbourhoods. Would you like to get to them?
