El Barrio del Arenal en 360º
On the website by Sevilla in 360 degrees (www.sevillaen360.es) we can find 360 degrees photographic compositions showing the most typical, characteristic and distinctive monuments and places in Seville.
If we click on the link below, we can watch Arenal district (Barrio del Arenal) in 360º (http://goo.gl/maps/AATsf). Arenal (meaning sandy ground) is one of the most characteristic and representative districts in Seville and is located in the old town between the river, the bull ring and Plaza Nueva. Very well known in this area are the following streets: Adriano Arfe, Dos de Mayo, Temprado, Velarde and Antonia Díaz. In the wake of the discovery of America and the resulting trade with the West Indies in the 16th and 17th centuries, this district became one of the most important port areas in the world. The quarter currently occupied by the bull ring was at that time a sandy esplanade where all kind of lively activities typical of a prosper trading harbour city were to be found. Nowadays this district is the meeting point of many Sevillian people who gather around the world of bullfighting, flamenco, theatre, opera and the Holy Week. Some places deserve a special visit: Hospital de la Caridad, the old Royal Shipyard (Reales Atarazanas), the Bull Ring and its museum, Torre del Oro and the Chapels of Carreteria and Baratillo Brotherhoods.
