A city oozing Andalusian charm
Seville has something for everyone, from flamenco dancing to tapas. The capital of Andalusia, it is perfectly placed for a sunny city break, with temperatures rarely getting below 20 degrees Centigrade. The city offers a mixture of classical and modern architecture to astound every taste. The vast semi-circular building in the spectacular Plaza de España, complete with canal on which you can enjoy a leisurely row, is a must, as is the Plaza de America.
A trip to Seville isn’t complete unless you visit the Royal Alcázar of Seville. Originally built as a palace by Moorish Muslim kings, it is still in use today as the Spanish Royal family’s official residence in Seville, and was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. While Seville Cathedral offers a stunning view across the city, fans of modern architecture could see similarly impressive sights from the upper level of the Metropol Parasol. This wooden structure, which claims to be the world’s largest, has been nicknamed by locals as ‘the mushroom’ due to its unusual design. Whatever you’re looking for, Seville has something to impress.
