Calle Marmoles - Seville


The Calle Marmoles, or Marble Street, gets its name from its three 30-foot granite columns. These are vestiges from a temple built in the days of the Roman Empire, which was probably dedicated to Hercules or to the god Mars. A legend dating back to the Renaissance claims that the half-god Hercules was the founder of Seville. These columns show how the level of the city has altered: it has risen over 6 feet since Roman times. Other columns from this same temple have been used to decorate the Plaza Alameda, which is situated on the opposite side of the historical part of the city, in the Macarena district.
