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.

The old town has everythig u need, from bars, restaurants, cafe, architecture, shops animation. Seville is so easy, simple and well managed that getting lost in it is actually a way of discovering a new world that celebrates the past and embraces the futur. Never tough one second that it will be that beautiful when i booked my flight. A must see in your life.

Lots of restaurants and other eating places with great artisanal dishes of which staff were proud. Generally very hospitable people, proud of their city. It's not always easy getting around but people try to be helpful and taxis are plentiful.

It’s a beautiful city with so much to see.

October 21, 2018

It’s a beautiful city with so much to see. The architecture, especially the Alcazar, is astounding. We went to Alcazar during the day and for the evening tour(a play enacted purely in Spanish by the way) and it was lovely to see it in both lights. The María Luisa gardens are lovely, close to Plaza de España, which is breathtaking(but why were several lorries, a cement mixer and a crane parked there especially as everyone wants to take photographs?) Flamenco show at the museum is worth visiting- nice intimate atmosphere. Tip - book tickets for the Alcazar and cathedral in order to beat the queues. No shortage of eating places, and we were recommended La Bartola(ate there twice), El Pintón(didn’t try) and Antiguedades(ate there twice). El Pintón has what must be the most useless website ever - don’t expect any information from it if you don’t use Facebook or Instagram like us. Be prepared to walk a lot and take a map - it’s easy to get lost.

October 20, 2018

Upon arrival in Seville I commented how stunningly beautiful and clean it was. Loved the old town area around the cathedral. Pleasant trips to the palaces. If you go to them within an hour or so of opening, you’ll avoid the long lines that seem to grow as the day wears on. Lots of lovely shops for ceramics, jewelry, scsrves and clothing and cafes and restaurants with shaded outdoor dining lining the sidewalks. We had a fabulous time in Seville. Stayed very central and could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Taxis are inexpensive if you need a ride to a train station.

October 15, 2018

Sevilla is a beautiful city in which to vacation at very affordable prices. The food we had in both Sevilla and the Triana neighborhood was consistently superior! We absolutely loved our Spanish cooking class at Taller Andaluz de Cocina in the Triana Food Market. We enjoyed the Roman ruins at Italica Archaeological Site, and visiting the amazing Archivo de Indias - a very special world heritage resource. We used Tours by Locals guide David Delgado (an amazing personable guide) for a trip out of Seville to see the small white towns of Zahara de la Sierra and Arcos de la Frontera, as well as the historic port city of Cadiz. David also took us to a historic olive oil mill in the country. The famous bullring - Plaza de Toros de Sevilla is such a rich cultural experience that amazed the whole family. Could not miss the soccer (futbol) stadium visit and gift shop. As we had just visited Granada, Alhambra and Cordoba, we skipped the like tourist attractions in Sevilla and more enjoyed our time in the city, neighborhoods and surrounding communities outside the tourist areas. Seville is a must see for any world traveler!

October 14, 2018

Wasn't sure what to expect in Seville as the bus ride in from Granada runs through an unremarkable area of the city, but once unloaded and meandering through the streets and alleys we found Seville to be an amazing blend of modern big city amenities and the walkable charm and wonder of traditional Spanish cities. Both the cathedral and Real Alcazar are beyond impressive structures and the narrow streets and alleys with shops and cafes in Santa Cruz are just lovely. We didn't see all there is to see but don't miss the Plaza de Espana. So faithfully constructed you'd never guess it was built less than 100 years ago. It and the surrounding plaza are absolutely beautiful.
