Plaza del Salvador – Evening Aperitif
Join the hordes of people that gather in Plaza del Salvador to begin an evening befitting the Stripped Back Sevilla lifestyle. This wide, open plaza is crowned by the Iglesia del Salvador, which lines the western face. This church is the second largest baroque temple of the city, and holds stunning architectural value as well as boasting an ornate interior of high artistic merit.

The lifeblood of the plaza are the bars Los Soportales and La Antigua Bodeguita. Backing onto the iglesia del Hospital de la Paz, these popular hangouts are open from lunch till five, and then again from eight onwards. Tucked away under the arcade-like soportales, these small openings are supported by old stone columns of uneven height. These columns were once very common in Sevilla, particularly in this area, but have practically all but disappeared apart from the examples here and in Calle Alemanes.
The waiters are unusually friendly, the prices very economical, and the church steps allow the weary to rest while knocking back an evening drink. For a slice of traditional Sevillian unwinding, this plaza offers a buzzing ambiente in a picturesque setting.
