The Mudejar Route

By | 17 February, 2013 | 0 comments

 

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.

By | 9 February, 2013 | 0 comments

 

Friends of Alcoba del Rey de Sevilla Hotel,

Last september, gorgeous professional eastern dancer Najma Suha, chose Alcoba del Rey de Sevilla Hotel to have a brilliant photo session wearing her beautiful and genuine dancing suites.

Najma, pupil of Nakthmin and Kamel, has taken part in the 3rd International Festival Isbilia with the group of Tribal-Fusion Andromeda and has shared the stage with figures of international fame like Lolie Vernet, Alba Hayal and Mohamed el Sayed. Her great talent and professional and artistic skill together with her enormous determination to improve even more her already outstanding ability for dance are making her earn a deserved and notable fame in this sublime world of eastern dance and in Tribal-Fusion, where she already bights with a unique style of her own. Najma is no doubt a name to take into account in this art in a not distant future.

The Church of Saint Gil

By | 7 February, 2013 | 0 comments

 

La Iglesia de San Gil es una de esas pequeñas joyas que muy a menudo pasamos por alto cuando viajamos a una ciudad nueva. Tendemos a fijarnos únicamente en grades y afamados monumentos, para nada desmerecidos, y nos dejamos atrás otros tan valiosos como por ejemplo esta parroquia del barrio de la Macarena.

Esta iglesia, ubicada en la recoleta Plaza de San Gil, linda con la Basílica de la Macarena, y fue otrora sede de esta hermandad. Construida a finales del siglo XIII, es un hermoso ejemplar del arte gótico-mudejar que se desarrolló en nuestra ciudad después de la conquista de Fernando III.

La Iglesia de San Gil, considerada patrimonio histórico desde 1931, está a tan sólo 100 metros del Hotel Alcoba del Rey de Sevilla, que disfruta de una ubicación perfecta, rodeado de edificios monumentales como éste.

Dirección: Plaza de San Gil nº 2, Sevilla
