Petit Palace Guide of Seville

CATHEDRAL, ALCÁZAR AND ARCHIVES OF THE INDIES

These monuments are the heart of Seville and the essence of his Almohads roots. The Cathedral, with Giralda’s minaret, is the largest Gothic building in Europe.  Raised on an old mosque, which still retains the Patio de los Naranjos, the Royal Palaces are a Moorish and Gothic art example in Seville.  The Archive of the Indies, which was the old fish market, has unique documentary resources of the Spanish colonies. Petit Palace Marqués de Santa Ana Hotel is the perfect accommodation for any trip to Seville.

SANTA CRUZ DISTRICT

Santa Cruz district is the most charming district of Seville. It was the old Jewish quarter of the city, which housed the second largest Jewish community in Spain.  Its narrow streets are perfect for walks in the shade and its many squares are full of life, tapas and music.  Don’t miss Plaza de los Venerables, Santa Elvira and Santa Cruz Squares. The Petit Palace Santa Cruz Hotel is located at Santa Cruz typical district.

MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS
The Museum of Fine Arts is a must for painting lovers.  This building, built in 1835, is one of the most representative Spanish art centers of Baroque and Sevillian seventeenth-century paintings, with works by artists such as Velázquez, El Greco, Juan de Valdes Leal … and especially Murillo and Zurbarán, who have devoted some few of the museum’s 14 rooms.

FLAMENCO AND TABLAOS
Flamenco is floating in every corner of Seville.  Its sounds fills the streets of the old center, painting its facades and squares. The best places to enjoy its essence are the Tablaos, typical bars where tables surround a stage offering performances every single night.  Scattered throughout Seville, one of the most emblematic is near the Petit Palace Santa Cruz Hotel: Tablao Los Gallos.

In the Basque Country, native town of the firm, we find one of the most recommended Petit Palace hotels by travellers: the Petit Palace Tamarises Hotel, which stands out for its excellent cuisine and that unique atmosphere one can only feel in the beautiful Ereaga beach, in Getxo.

Nevertheless, most of the Petit Palace hotels are located in Madrid: they are all located in the most central streets in the capital, close at hand from the most universal places of interest in Madrid, from Puerta del Sol, to Gran Vía, Plaza Mayor and Serrano.

Among these hotels, we highlight those designed to offer the guest a unique experience which is more than relax and rest, as it is the case of the Petit Palace Embassy Serrano Hotel, the Petit Palace Londres Madrid Hotel or the Petit Palace Alcalá Torre Hotel, located in the first skyscraper in Madrid.
