In its current architecture we find the oldest building is the Hotel Inglaterra, built in 1870 as an inn, this is what hotels used to be called, and it lasts in the same place but it is not its original form. In front of the door of this historic accommodation you can find a taxi stand with vehicles available very useful for your trips in and out of the city.
Later, in the 20th century, the big companies of the time wanted to be present in the new fashionable public space of the city and new large and very demonstrative buildings were added such as the Teléfonica headquarters of regionalist style, built by Juan de Talavera, criticized by the Academy of Fine Arts of Seville for the similarity of its tower to the Giralda and the insurer Union and the Fenix in the corner that turns towards the Avenue of the construction.
Finally, useful information about the square today is for example that has a large bike rack to tie your bikes if you decide to walk the city center and you need a safe place to tie it and that every day of the week there are usually shows of street artists of different styles including flamenco singing and dancing. Next to the Plaza Nueva is the Arenal neighborhood with many options for tapas and enjoy the typical atmosphere of the bars of Seville. We leave a video of the street artists of Plaza Nueva to give you an idea. Until our next article! ;)
