When speaking of Spain you never really hear of Seville! We all know of Madrid, Barcelona and Ibiza because they are the significant ‘cities’ of Spain but if you are a traveller and explorer then you will definitely have heard of Seville.
After asking a few people who have visited Spain and doing my fair share of research (which mainly includes reading travel blogs) I realised how important a city Seville is when you are exploring Spain.
Seville is in the south of Spain and a trip to Seville can be clubbed with other close by cities like Cordoba, Granada, Malaga, Toledo, Ronda & Cadiz.
Historically Seville has a lot so if that’s your high point for travel then you are going to be floored by Seville. My family and me aren’t very big on History but we did do the free walking tour in Seville which did give us a complete gist of Seville. Seville is a proper city yet has this old world charm to it and that’s what was the highlight for us in Seville.
There are great bars and lounges in Seville but you would rather sit at a rooftop bar or at a tavern by the road and watch the people of Seville and soak up the city. And trust me when it comes to partying there are a lot of other places in Spain that you can save that up for 😉
48 hours or two days in Seville is more than enough if you are tight on time and have a huge list of cities you would like to visit in Spain.

Going to quickly list down, Things to do (Places to see) in Seville
- Seville Cathedral
I’ve never seen a cathedral as enormous as the Seville Cathedral. The Seville Cathedral actually happens to be the largest Gorthic Cathedral and the third largest church in the world.
- Plaza de Espana
By far the most magnificent pavilion. Its so widespread with beautiful architecture that shows the amalgamation of Renaissance Revival and Moorish Revival (Neo-Mudéjar) styles of Spanish architecture.
- Giralda Tower
If there is something especially significant to Seville then its the Giralda Tower. The top of this tower gives you a panaromic view of the city.
- Royal Alcazar
This royal palace in Seville is an actual beauty an a perfect insight into the mujedar architecture.
- Sit by the river at Torre del Oro
We caught a few moments of rest and stretched our legs sitting besides the Guadalquivir river right under the watch tower.
- Flamenco Dance
We went to see the Flamenco in a very authentic style at Carboneria. Where you actually aren’t even allowed to take photos or videos and the whole experience went on for about an hour and was marvellously enchanting.
- Visit Metropol Parasol (in the evening)
- Recupperate at the Maria Luisa Park
- Barrio Santa Cruz
- Rooftop bar night at Hotel Dona Maria
with the Giralda tower in view and the Seville Cathedral all lit up, it makes for a gorgeous night away from all the bustle of the city.
The labyrinth narrow streets and colourful houses of this old Jewish quarters of Seville is quite the primary touristy area.
PS: If you are a shopaholic like me then you will find all your fashion and beauty brands too in Seville to shop from. From independent stores to shopping malls, Seville will satisfy all your shopping needs too 🙂
