On our walk along the riverbank, the statue of Carmen, the cigarrera (the cigarette roller), stands opposite the Plaza de Toros.

Not far from there Charity Hospital’s and Miguel de Mañara,character associated with the myth of  Don Juan.

Once in the heart of the city, your next stop will be the site where Rossini placed  Figaro´s house.  

And just a little further ahead lie the very quaint and winding alleys of the Santa Cruz Quarter , where the characters of these operas were prey to love and misfortune.
