Seville is one of Spain’s most picturesque and romantic cities, filled with mazes of narrow streets, palatial architecture and pretty plazas. The most famous parts of Spanish culture, from flamenco and bullfighting to tapas under the sun, flourish here. Your Seville holiday can take in a little of it all.
The heart of the city is the old Jewish neighbourhood, the Barrio de Santa Cruz, home to a colourful tangle of narrow alleyways, fountain-filled plazas and historic buildings. It’s here, on the outskirts of this neighbourhood, that you’ll find some of the city’s most famous sights: the Cathedral, with its Mudéjar minaret of La Giralda, and the opulent Moorish palace of the Real Alcázar.
Wherever you go in Seville, you’ll be greeted by statement pieces of architecture, whether it’s the grand pavilions of the Plaza de España, with its striking tiles and fountains, or the modern masterpiece Las Setas, the largest wooden structure in the world.
When you’re done admiring the city, head over the River Guadalquivir to the lively neighbourhood of Triana. It’s one of the birthplaces of sultry flamenco, and you can catch a performance in one of its underground bars.
Dive into the city’s burgeoning foodie and tapas scene to round out your Seville holiday, and you’ll soon discover why it’s one of Spain’s most captivating cities.
Seville is generally a very safe city for travellers. For up-to-date travel advice for Spain, check the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.
No, travellers with a full British passport do not need a visa to go to Seville.
You can see the major highlights of Seville in a short weekend break, but if you have more time, it’s worth extending to your trip to visit some of the surrounding areas, such as the sherry capital of Jerez de la Frontera or the National Park of Doñana, a major wetland area famous for its flamingos and other migratory birds.
Spanish people eat late, so don’t expect to eat lunch until around 2pm and dinner until 9pm or later.
The centre of Seville can easily be discovered on foot, although there are bus and tram routes if you want to explore a little further. Car hire isn’t necessary unless you want to discover the surrounding countryside. Trains can take you from Seville to major cities such as Malaga, Cordoba and Madrid.
It’s jam-packed with historic attractions, effortlessly romantic and home to some of the best tapas bars in all of Spain, but that’s just the tip of the ‘why go’ iceberg for stunning Seville…Read moreabout Why Seville should be your next city break destination
