What not to miss in Seville
Nobody can leave Seville without visiting its Cathedral, the largest church in the world. Next to it is La Giralda, a minaret that belonged to the old mosque and from where you can enjoy an amazing view from up the top. The Reales Alcázares is a palace built in the 10th century that was home to Muslim and Spanish royalty. You might get hungry after visiting so many monuments so why not go for a walk in the Santa Cruz or Triana districts and enjoy its excellent tapas bars as well as its great atmosphere, finishing off the meal with a nice coffee in a square surrounded by orange trees. Later, take a stroll around Parque de María Luisa or visit the bullring of La Maestranza and the famous Torre del Oro, a tower built in the 13th century. At night, enjoy a flamenco show in the region where it was born and where it’s performed most passionately.
Districts in Seville
Seville has many districts but there are four main ones that contain most of the points of interest and the best ones to rent cheap apartments in Seville. Los Arenales is the old port district of Seville, a district renovated for the 1992 Expo that contains La Maestranza and the Torre del Oro among other monuments. The other side of the river is home to Triana, the oldest district in Seville and where you can buy excellent crafts and enjoy delicious tapas. Macarena has Moorish and baroque architecture of great value whilst Santa Cruz is the old Jewish district that is now filled with shops, bars, restaurants and traditional courtyards, undoubtedly the most attractive one in the city.
When to visit Seville
Seville doesn’t come to life in the summer until after the sun goes down, so it’s best to visit the Andalusian capital when it’s not so hot, such as early spring or autumn, since the temperatures in summer easily reach 100ºF.
Getting around Seville
To get to Seville you can take the AVE high-speed train from Madrid that gets you there in 3 hours or arrive at its San Pablo Airport which connects the city with many European destinations. Its public transport network is good but it’s recommended to visit the city by foot.
Traditional festivals in Seville
Semana Santa is what the Spanish call Holy Week and you can experience it in Seville like nowhere else in Spain, Europe or the World. Its processions fill the streets and the traditional atmosphere floods the city, definitely the best time to come on holiday to Seville. Also in April is its famous Feria de Abril, a fair which revolves around flamenco and folklore which allows the visitor to enjoy the city’s most traditional side with plenty of food, dancing and surrounded by a fantastic atmosphere
