Alameda de Hercules

The Alameda de Hercules, which takes its name from the mythical founder of the city, is a major public garden located in the historic center of Seville. Due to its construction date it is classified as one of the oldest public gardens in Spain and Europe. Its construction dates back to the sixteenth century. It was decided to dry one branch of the Guadalquivir River and build in its place a large walk with trees and fountains, creating the Paseo de la Alameda de Hercules. In one of the entrances of the avenue were established two marble columns that belonged to a second century Roman Temple and successively crowned with a statue of Julius Caesar and one of Hercules.
