This is, without doubt, the best-known street and it runs between Plaza de San Francisco and La Campana (a shopping area). Although it's a short street, it's lined with all kinds of shops, bars and cafes, and has a constant stream of people all day long. It's a prime location, right in the center of the city and completely pedestrianized. Next to this street are Plaza del Salvador and Capilla de San Jose . There are also several tiled walls in this street, one of these being the façade of Seville's former prison where you can read that Miguel De Cervantes was imprisoned here, and it was while serving his sentence that he had the idea to write El Quijote, the most famous work of Spanish literature.
I was luck enough to be here during the end of season sales. I did not have a lot of clothes with me and was therefore "forced" to shop. Wow what bargains I found. Also, the people were incredible friendly.
I had to purchased another suit case :)
Sierpes is the place to shop. This said, the prices are somewhat inflated....but there are great "rebajas" sales during July and again in January...so if you are in Seville during these months, shopping should be cheap. The street to the west of Sierpes is also a great shopping street. I used to live very close to this street and would walk down it daily. It is always full of people! There's also a fairly cheap internet cafe on Sierpes and it has a few ceramics shops.
