Seville is the old Andalusian capital, rich in history and culture. The architecture of the city is heavily influenced by the Moors with a 16th Century Baroque edge to some of the grand building. The city is split by the mighty Guadalquivir River with the main city to the east and Triana across the river to the west. Visitors to the city tend to be drawn to the old Jewish Quarter – the Barrio Santa Quarter. The maze like, tightly packed streets are incredibly atmospheric, if a little busy in peak months.

Discover the old Jewish Quarter

The Plaza del Triunfo, behind the mighty Cathedral of the Virgin Mary, is at the heart of the old Jewish Quarter and acts as a good reference point for first time visitors. Within easy walking distance is the Door of Pardon and the Patio de los Naranjos. The impressive inner courtyard is lined with trees and a central fountain. During Moorish times this was where the worshippers would wash their hands and feet prior to their five daily prayer sessions. A short walk from here is the Renaissance Palace of Alcazar. The lush gardens are a perfect shady retreat from the hustle and bustle of the busy city.

Over 3,000 tapas bars

A visit to Seville would not be complete without sampling the local culture and, more specifically, the tapas. Seville is rumoured to the original home of these small bites and there are over 3,000 bars serving up tasty treats in and around the city. Seville is also a university town which adds a touch of vitality and this can be seen in the area around the Plaza de San Francisco – home to a great range of bars. Football fans can take advantage of two top level teams with both Sevilla FC and Real Betis based in the city.

Things to do in Seville

Eat and drink in Seville

The local people believe Seville is the home of tapas. There are over 3,000 tapas bars spread around the city and they like nothing better than to work their way slowly between bars enjoying small plates of food washed down with the local Manzanilla sherry. First time tapas eaters may feel over whelmed by the choice on offer. The best advice is to take a tapas crawl and try out the bars of the old town. Order as you go rather than ordering lots at once. It is typical to be able to order either tapas for one or sharing platter often referred to as either ‘media raciones’ (small plate) or ‘raciones’ (large sharing plates). Local specialities include Iberico ham, fried fish in many forms, beef cheeks and a superb range of delicious puddings. Non sherry drinkers will be offered very cold, small glasses of local beer.

Seville nightlife

Seville has a very relaxed but committed approach to nightlife. There are very few nightclubs but the bars tend to be open until the early hours as visitors move easily between them. The area around Plaza Alfalfa, north of Barrio Santa Cruz, is home to wide range of bars. The Calle Perez Galdos is lined with bars, popular with locals and students alike. The atmosphere is great as the streets are busy with people either enjoying a drink in the warm evening air or moving onto the next local bar. Across town, the Alameda de Hercules area is another local alternative. A popular option is to head across the bridge to Triana. The Calle Betis is a popular river front street with views back across the beautifully lit old town. You will find a good range of bars with waterfront terraces as well as places to eat.

Shopping in Seville

In a city as large as Seville it is hard to know where to start. Often, the best way to find your bearings is to pick a starting point and then fan out from there. The best high street shopping experience can be found in the area surrounding the Plaza Nueva. You can follow your nose as you head long Calle Tetuan and discover the local delights of Seville. The city is bursting with big brand name stores but the same streets also house small artisan dealers and local trades specialising in the more mundane services including cobblers and launderettes. As with most large cities in Spain, Seville has a branch of El Corte Ingles. This popular department store is likely to have the essentials you might be looking for. For a more authentic experience try the Mercadillo de los Jueves flea market. This long running open air market is a great place to spend a sunny morning watching the locals bartering over bric-a-brac.

Things to see in Seville

The historic centre is waiting to be discovered. The imposing Cathedral of the Virgin Mary is the star of the show. The cathedral was built on the grounds of the old Arabic mosque with construction starting in 1401. The only remaining parts of the mosque are the Patio de los Naranjos and the Giralda tower. The cathedral is said to be the resting place of Christopher Columbus. The beauty of the Plaza de Espana and the surrounding park land is a nice place to spend an afternoon with a picnic. Lovers of flamenco should look out for live performances in and around the city – Seville lays claim to being the birth place of flamenco. The Museo del Baile Flamenco is a great place to enjoy this energetic dance form. If your weekly pilgrimage is based on your local football team you might like to consider a trip to one of the two top team in Seville – Sevilla FC and Real Betis. The atmosphere is electric and you will have the chance to see some of the world’s greatest footballers.

We Recommend

Eslava

This is one of the most popular tapas restaurants in the city for good reason. The food is beautifully prepared and presented, the service is relaxed and friendly and the atmosphere is lively. It is a relatively small restaurant but you can sit and enjoy a nice glass of wine or sherry while you wait. You will find Eslava in the area west of Alameda de Hercules.

Bar Alfalfa

This authentic tapas bar in the heart of the Alfalfa district is the perfect place to enjoy lovingly prepared small bites of food. The colourful bar is lined with hanging hams and a chalk board full of tantalising eats and drinks.

Seville April Fair

A week-long festival with parties, eating, lots of local sherry and some flamenco dancing. Not to be missed.

Repeat visitors

This was our third trip to Seville in as many years and it is still great. Having done a lot of the main sights already we chose to do some walking around in the Alameda and Centro districts and took a boat tour. The boat tour is not that great but you do see the city from a different perspective at least. The tapas bars are very good, particularly Bar Las Theresas in Santa Cruz and the famous El Rinconcello where we spent a very enjoyable evening. We will be going back again I have no doubt!

Well worth a visit so much to do and see, allow plenty of time.

The is so much to see I would suggest the bus tour first and then get around on foot or bike. It is fairly flat so you can get around easily. You have to allow plenty time to visit the various attractions. If not like us it will be a good enough reason to go back.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The relaxed atmosphere and wonderful at night

A great city to visit

I think Seville has much to offer. The historical buildings such as the Cathedral and Alcazar are amazing. There is a great shopping area and a new metro (which we didn't use, however). There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. (The only downside is the beggars who pester tourists everywhere. Beware also the thieves who snatch your bag if it's not secure next to you outside a restaurant or bar.) However, other than these problems, I can recommend Seville as a great place to visit. If you are able, try to take the bus from the airport into town. The taxis have a habit of charging over Eur 30 at night when the fare should only be Eur 21, but it's hard to argue once you arrive at your destination!

The best thing about my stay was ...

Wandering the streets of the Barrio Santa Cruz and climbing up the Giralda tower!

Stunning City

Seville was a revelation, vibrant and historical. A superb friendly city. Our visit was at the beginning of September still very hot, but so many places to get a cold beer and fabulous tapas. Walking around the town was so easy and interesting finding your way round all the cobbled streets. We only had one day in Seville, so nowhere near long enough so a return visit for longer is a must

Oozing with history. Bustling city. Felt very safe. Tapas bars galore to choose from.

We went 20 October and had fantastic weather up till the day we left, when it rained heavily. So much to see. Used Everyman Map guide with open up maps, which was useful, but still got lost down narrow streets!! Must sees - Cathedral and Giralda Tower, Plaza de Espana, bull ring, parks and churches. Will definitely visit again but at Easter (for processions) and the Feria de abril, when they celebrate dance and the flamenca. So easy to get to from East Midlands. Ryanair flights were good both ways.
