Seville

Seville

The charismatic city of Seville has a certain swagger that sets it apart from quainter Andalusian towns. It is a city with undeniable personality and a confidence that could only come from a place bathed in sunlight almost year-round. It boasts a fascinating history of Roman and Moorish invasions, followed by unparalleled Colonial prosperity, this mix of influences giving rise to Seville's cultural cornucopia of architecture, cuisine and the region's fiery dance, Flamenco. Tangled alley labyrinths, exquisite cathedrals and animated tapas bars line the Guadalquivir river which winds its way through the Andalusian capital as it wears its heart on its sleeve for visitors and sevillanos alike.

Cathedral Santa María de la Sede

This is the third-largest cathedral in Europe. It was originally built as a mosque in the 12th-century and its 328 feet-high minaret is now the Giralda clock tower. Christopher Columbus is buried inside the cathedral.

Plaza de España

This amazing massive building is the most impressive sight along with the cathedral and is a must-see when visiting Seville. It is located in the stunning Maria Luisa Park and was built for the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929, held in Seville. The style of this amazing building is inspired by the Renaissance with characteristic elements from the city: exposed brick and ceramics. Fun fact to know if you are a Star Wars fan: Plaza de España has been used for some of the scenes of episode II of George Lucas' Star Wars saga "Attack of the clones".

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.

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.
