ALFALFA is a typical Sevilla neighbourhood, filled with narrow streets, independent businesses and fantastic tapas bars.
So fantastic, in fact, that Barack Obama couldn’t help but pay a visit last year after attending the WTTC Global Summit in April.
The former US president didn’t stick around to enjoy the string of late-night bars however, or check out the ever-growing Soho Benita area.
Alfalfa – literally meaning horse feed – gets its name from storing the stuff there during the Reconquest. However the barrio has been around since Roman times and once hosted a thriving silk market during the Moorish period.
