A mediaeval maze. Old Town is a tangled labyrinth of snaking passageways that hum with local bars. Grab a “caña” (small beer) at El Salvador Square, then dive into Seville’s illustrious history. The colossal cathedral and indulgent Alcázar Palace speak of competing legacies, as successive dynasties vied to put their architectural stamp on the city.

Tip-top for tapas. This residential district is awash with excellent eateries. Start off with an up-market appetiser at Bar Yebra, then wander across to La Pastora, which is famed for its fried fish. Work off the calories with a wander to La Macarena Basilica, and join devout locals as they murmur Hail Marys to the weeping Macarena Virgin.

New-fangled Nervión. This area’s been in a state of constant renovation for years. Its wide avenues are lined with office blocks, where sharp-suited businesspeople stride in and out. The mood changes on match days. Sevilla FC’s famously ebullient supporters fill the Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium with deafening cheers and jeers. Footy fans can’t miss it.

Olé! Triana fizzes with folklore. It’s here that flamenco music took off, and no trip to Seville is complete without a visit to Calle Betis’ authentic “tablaos” (flamenco bars). To dig into Triana’s chequered past, go to Castillo San Jorge. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition’s old HQ to have transformed into a museum about its dastardly deeds.

Roll up, roll up! Once a year, all eyes turn to Los Remedios, when Seville’s legendary April Fair rolls into town. Impatient locals have spent a whole year waiting for this moment. It’s a whirl of colour, as people meet, greet and eat in true Sevillano style. Dig out that frilly dress and dust down your castanets – it’s party time!

In Seville, the sunshine isn't the only constant: the city bursts with vibrant colors year-round. Ripe oranges dangle from green trees, golden sandstone buildings are decorated in blue and white tiles, and glasses of red wine are served alongside creamy slices of Manchego cheese.
This historic Spanish city is best explored on foot. Enjoy the laid-back vibes while lounging on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, or walk along the footpaths of María Luisa Park down to the Plaza de España. Located at the edge of the park, this beautiful square features a variety of architectural styles and four bridges that represent each of Spain’s ancient kingdoms. You can even rent a row boat to leisurely float down the moat running beneath them.
The Andalusian capital is also home to Spain’s largest cathedral. Right behind its striking Gothic exterior is the tomb of Christopher Columbus. The neighboring Alcázar of Seville is an iconic example of Mudéjar architecture, with its intricate mosaic-tiled interior, lush gardens, and beautiful fountains.
Seville has a vibrant nightlife, from its bustling tapas bars to nightly performances at the Flamenco Museum – a gorgeous 18th-century building built on the foundations of an old Roman temple.

It is the heart of it all. Easy to get around to all the sites. A little noisy in the morning because it is on the tourist route. Great for all with 4 bedrooms/4 baths plenty of your own space. Full kitchen with washer/dryer was very useful.
A great beautiful city with a lot of historical building and landmarks. Plenty to see and enjoy long walks. Affordable car rental rates. Close driving distance to other spectacular places near by, such as: Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, Cadiz and Gibraltar. One week to spend in Sevilla is a least. To see other places - expect to spend two weeks easy.
Seville is full of history. We regret that we drove from Lisbon to Seville, as traffic was just crazy driving to our hotel. Motorcycles are all over, and on expressways they weave in and out of lanes. I highly recommend Alcazar and the Cathedral. We also enjoyed the bullfighting tour/museum.
Barrio Santa Cruz was a great area to base ourselves for it's proximity to bars, restaurants and all major attractions. The Alcazar was amazing....leave plenty of time to do it justice. Plaza de Espana was bustling on a sunny Sunday morning and was another place we spent a good few hours. Just walking the cobbled side streets of Santa Cruz and coming across differet little plazas was so lovely.
Seville is a gem. It's a beautiful town with orange trees growing in the streets. People are friendly, there's lots to see and it's a great place to go when you need a little sunshine in the grey northern winters.
This the Spain you read about and whose culture has spread to the Americas. Picturesque old city with clear rich Moorish + Baroque Catholic flavor, architecture and art. The seat of FLAMENCO. The laid back atmosphere is (in my opinion) preferable to Madrid's.
