Wondering what to see and do in Seville? We spent three days savouring Seville, and enjoyed the sights, sounds, and flavours of this main city in the Andalusian region of Southern Spain. If you’re planning to travel to Spain, this is a city not to be missed!
We spent hours wandering through the Alcazar, an amazing 10th century Moorish palace, refurbished and rebuilt in the 14th century when the Christians decided it was theirs.
The Cathedral: the 3rd largest in Europe after St. Peter’s in Rome and St. Paul’s in London and absolutely stunning. It is definitely worth spending some time here (and it may provide you with some relief from the usual hot weather in Seville!)
The Giralda Tower
Barrio Santa Cruz
Barrio Santa Cruz is the old Jewish Quarter, now a maze of narrow streets, some with buildings so close they’re called “kissing lanes” as lovers could lean across their wrought-iron balconies to connect with each other. It’s a hodgepodge of romantic alleys filled with shops and tapas bars and tourists galore, but it was still lots of fun for us to explore. In fact, we loved it so much, we’re returning to stay in the Hotel Murillo on our next trip.
Eating and drinking!
Plaza de Espagna
Plaza de Espagna is a stunningly beautiful, magnificent, massive (insert more adjectives here) square built in 1929 for a World’s Fair, complete with an adjoining park. It was hard to stop taking photos there.
And so much more!!! There are many incredible sights to see in this city, but the best part of our time here has simply been the paseo and the tapas! We have tried out 7 different tapas bars in this city famous for its tapas scene. This must be what food bloggers’ heaven looks like!
Such incredible energy and passion in this traditional art form. Be sure to grab some tickets and allow an hour or so to take in a flamenco performance one evening. You won’t forget it!
