About Seville

Including tips for the best time to visit Seville

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.

Lot's of historic places to see.

August 4, 2021

Lot's of historic places to see. The Cathedral is around the corner and worth walking up to top of tower in La Giralda. Fabulous ornate inside of church. Took teenager who liked seeing it. Park in Avenida de Roma public parking. Easy to get to and our hotel gets a discount rate of 16 Euros per 25hrs. Go to Plaza de La Encarnation. Great views of city from walkway on top. Subterranean museum is interesting and worth a trip! Easy to walk around the city if you stay in the old part of the city near the Cathedral. Horne Artescano -location Place de la Alfalfa10, Seville Amazing chocolate round pasteries. Must get there before 9:30am ish to get those. Other pastries are amazing as well!

Seville was a wonderful city to travel to.

August 2, 2021

Seville was a wonderful city to travel to. We were happy with our total length of time (5 days). Two days we decided to do day trips. One to Cordoba and the other to Granada. Highly recommend both. We felt day trips to both these cities was enough time. Seville has beautiful hidden alleyways and walkways that you can get lost in and wander aimlessly through. Very hot in July, but this was to be expected. Locals were very friendly and we felt welcomed.

Seville is a beautiful city with a lot to discover.

July 9, 2021

Seville is a beautiful city with a lot to discover. I would avoid hiring a car as parking is difficult to find. Rent a bike instead. Also avoid visiting the city during the summer as it gets unbearably hot.

The main attractions (Cathedral and Alcazar) are definitely...

June 18, 2021

The main attractions (Cathedral and Alcazar) are definitely worth seeing. Plenty of beautiful buildings (Pabelllons and Museos) and Archivo de Indias. The best of them all is Plaza de Espana - magnificent sight that takes your breath away. Eating out is a must as the city is safe and well managed during Covid times (the Policia patrol). Brush up on your Spanish - it is appreciated no matter how bad your accent is. Walking along the river (both sides) is a delightful break from the city - the best views (and shade) are on the opposite side to the Torre del Oro and along to Puento de Triana. Wear comfortable shoes - the cobblestones are hardgoing in heels! Espadrilles are the local favourites. Make sure you wear a hat! There are lots of shady tree areas and free water fountains but when in the sunshine it is fierce!

The city is really beautiful the Alcazar and the Juderia...

October 29, 2017

The city is really beautiful the Alcazar and the Juderia amazing. Excellent food at small prices! The big problem is that if you want to stay in the historic center you have to leave the car outside that zone,in the street if you are lucky or in a parking lot(if you are lucky too to find a spot) and pay a lot per day. But even if you arrive by other means is difficult to reach yor hotel. You see many people everyday carrying bags on the cobblestone streets to reach or leave their accomodation
