Bathed in sunlight year-round, Seville has a charismatic and upbeat vibe. The mix of Roman, Moorish and Colonial influences have sculpted Seville's reputation as a cultural cornucopia. Tangled alleyways, labyrinths, exquisite cathedrals, and animated tapas bars line the Guadalquivir river, which winds its way through the Andalusian capital.

Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See
Catedral de Santa María de la Sede, Avenida de la Constitución, Seville

Seville Cathedral is the third-largest cathedral in Europe. Originally built as a mosque in the 12th-century, the 100-metre- high minaret is now the Giralda clock tower. Christopher Columbus is buried inside the cathedral.

Plaza de España
Avenida de Isabel la Católica, Seville

Take a stroll over to the colossal Plaza de España when you're in Seville. Nestled within the beautiful Maria Luisa Park, this architectural marvel was crafted for the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929. The building presents a stunning fusion of styles — think Renaissance revival with a local twist — we're talking exposed brick and ceramics. This plaza isn't just about the building. It also embraces a 515-meter-long canal encircling the square. Fancy a bit of romance? Hop on a boat and take in the beauty of the place from a whole new perspective. Just imagine — you, the water, and an architectural marvel providing the backdrop. Quite irresistible.

Tapas Bars

The Andalusian region, where Seville is located, is the birthplace of tapas and there are plenty of great places in the city to enjoy them — both in terms of atmosphere and for the food itself. Visit Calle Mateo Gago and try several tapas bars. La Fresquita is a hole-in-the-wall type place serving mini toasts with morcilla (blood sausage), and The Bodega Santa Cruz has a tasty tortilla. Bar Giralda in a former Moorish bathhouse is also worth a visit.

Taberna del Alabardero
Calle Zaragoza 20, Seville

This is the equivalent of Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen in London. A place where wayward youths learn to become master chefs and professional waiters. The menu is Neoclassical with ingredients from feudal days. For example, the Cordoba soup is served with both quail eggs and jabugo ham.

Calle Tetuán 24, Seville

Camper's shoes are known for being extraordinarily comfortable and still stylish. Their top-quality shoes, always with sleek designs, come for men, women and children.

Adolfo Domínguez
Calle Asunción 10, Seville

The history of this Spanish brand has its roots way back in the 1970's, and today there are shops all over Spain and also worldwide. The clothes, bags and shoes designed by Adolfo Domínguez are stylish and elegant and there are collections for men, women and kids.

Passport / Visa

Spain can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are not sure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend you to contact the embassy or consulate in your country. In order to enter the Schengen zone, international (non-Schengen) travellers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip. Citizens from Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but they must bring with them a valid ID during their stay.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Seville is either spring or fall, when days are sunny and temperatures are mild. The city's biggest events, Semana Santa and Feria de Abril, take place in the springtime, usually at the end of March or during April. Bear in mind that Seville can get really crowded and prices are generally higher during these weeks. Sevillan summers are some of the warmest in all of Europe and the heat could become unbearable, so try to avoid this period of the year.
