La Ruta Mudéjar
The town hall of Sevilla presented on Februry 14th “the Mudejar Route” of the city, which makes its way through the north area of the old town (Macarena district) linking different landmarks, buildings and churches with great patrimonial wealth within this singular Christian-Moslem art from the 12th to the16th centuries and is backed by a guide that can be already acquired in the main tourism information points.
The Mudejar Route begins at the Almohade wall of Macarena (from the Gate of Cordoba to the Arch of Macarena) and passes by the churches of San Gil, Santa Marian, San Marcos and Santa Paula, then by Palace of las Dueñas (residence of the Duchess of Alba), and ends up at the church of Omnium Sanctorum and the adjacent Palace of Marqueses de la Algaba, where we can find the Centre of Interpretation of Mudejar Art (www.alcobadelrey.com/2012/02/22/se-abre-al-publico-en-sevilla-el-palacio-de-los-marqueses-de-la-algaba/), showing objects from that period and the habits and traditions of those people.
The Mudejar Route, with an approximate length of 90 minutes, mainly runs through San Gil and Feria quarters in Macarena district, which are part of the old town and the centre of Seville, the area where Mudejar art mostly developed after the conquer of the city by king Fernando III.
We have to point out that in Seville we also have some other outstanding milestones as Palace of King Don Pedro (within Reales Alcazares), House of Pilatos, the churches of Santa Catalina, Santa Lucia and San Julian and Tower of Don Fadrique, they all overflowing with interest and wealthy artistic legacy.
Alcoba del Rey de Sevilla Hotel, inspired in Andalusi and Mudejar arts, is to be found within this route, just 50 meters from the Almohade Wall (s. XI) and around 100 meters from the church of San Gil (s. XIII), two of the main visitable landmarks. From here we encourage you to decide to include this interesting cultural proposal in your list of significant places to visit in the city of Seville.
