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.

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

Seville was one of the highlights of our trip.

July 3, 2016

Seville was one of the highlights of our trip. The kids were pumped to visit the Plaza de España where part of Star Wars 2 was filmed. We went to the Flamenco Museum and stayed for their show. We even found El Barbero de Sevilla and made a fun video. The cathedral is worth a visit. If you're interested in ceramic, be sure to go across the river to Triana. There are several ceramic shops there. We're glad we visited Seville.

July 2, 2016

A vibrant city with an amazing history, great tapas bars and friendly people. A tip.. If you're in the city for more than one day take one of the bus tours first - it helps with the geography of the city and is a chance to see some of the more outlying attractions. That said, the key tourist attractions are in a relatively small area making it a great city to walk around. The tapas bars are great places to eat - and good value, as a result I didn't get around to a formal restaurant but menus looked good. I'd recommend at least 4 days to enjoy the town. I had two - but at least I've now got good reasons to return. If you have time a visit Italica - a Roman city a short distance outside the town. It's interesting - and if you're from an EU country - free!

The Bar Patanchon has great food for a cheap price but good size portions for tapas.I loved Flamenco at Casa de la Memoria. It's authentic, they also have good food for a good price and a guitarist plays during dinner very awesome.The atmosphere is fun.There is also free flamenco all over the place.Plaza Espana is a must.The bullfight museum is cool.

"Quien no vio Sevilla no vio maravilla" (Whoever has not visited Seville has not seen marvel). It's one of the most beautiful cities to see, with so much culture and impressive monuments that you could spend months and not see it all, from the Alcazar, to its impressive cathedral, to the many museums, the fantastic ambiance, tapas, restaurants, music...

Seville is a beautiful city to visit.

June 27, 2016

Seville is a beautiful city to visit. A significant interest is the old part of the city which means walking. This is not a problem if you can walk a couple of hours each day. Taxis are a good option if the road is wide enough, certainly for 4 people it is better to take a taxi than the bus. The city is geared up for tourists, there is no problem in finding something to meet your needs and interests.
