Taking a city break to Seville is one of the best experiences you can have in Spain, with a mix of passion, heat and history making it a must-see destination...
Seville is a Spanish city renowned for its architecture, flamenco dancing and vibrant Easter celebrations. The city is awash with Moorish architecture, including Reales Alcazar de Sevilla, which was originally a Moorish fort and is today the oldest palace in Europe which is still in use.
Other notable buildings include Seville Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, which is the largest Gothic cathedral in the world and the third-largest church. Giralda Tower is a bell tower belonging to the cathedral which was converted from a former minaret.
The city's Jewish quarter, known as Barrio Santa Cruz, surrounds the cathedral. It is praised for its charming, winding streets and is well worth a visit. Or visit Plaza de Espana for hit of Renaissance Revival style film fans will recognise it as the set of Star Wars Episode II, Attack of the Clones.
Other places of interest include the Isla de la Cartuja, the Plaza de Toros bull ring, the Teatro de la Maestranza opera house, the Guadalquivir River, the Torre del Oro watchtower, Magdalena Church, the Hospital de la Caridad and Feria de Abril Seville's April Fair.
Look out for azulejos, which are local tiles used everywhere in the city. Or for a little variety, try trips out of town to Cadiz and Jerez as well as Cordoba.
Seville boasts warm weather year round but the city comes alive over Easter with traditional costumes and horses roaming the streets.
The airport is around 15km from the centre of Seville. Outside the arrivals terminal, the 'Aeropuerto' line is a bus route running between the town and the airport. Fares are just a few euros for the 30-minute journey.
Taxis are abundant at the airport, but more expensive than buses. Each cab will display a list of official fares, so take a look before you set off. Use the inexpensive bus routes which cover the whole city. Look out for day- and three-day passes if you are doing a lot of travelling during your short break. However the main attractions of Seville are located fairly centrally, so you might find that walking is the easiest option to get to where you want to go.
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
