About Seville

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.

If you’re looking for luxury, the Andalusian glamour of the Hotel Alfonso XIII is for you. It was built by King Alfonso in 1929 for VIP guests to the Expo, and has been a symbol of luxury in the city ever since. Its central location, just a five-minute walk from the cathedral, means it is perfect for sightseeing, while the outdoor pool will appeal to those looking for something a little more laidback. The Casa de Colón offers something less pricey but equally well placed, being close to the good places to shop and eat, as well as the cathedral. Large on character, this hotel is decorated with traditional ceramics and glass, giving it a true Andalusian feel. For something a little more unusual, the Hotel Amadeus with its musical theme offers really good value for money. It also boasts a central location, and its roof terrace offers a spectacular view across the city.

Calle Sierpes is at the heart of Seville’s shopping district and offers everything from boutiques to chain stores. Among the clothes and shoe stores are souvenir shops where you can pick up mementos including fans and shawls. Barrio Santa Cruz also has a number of souvenir shops where you can pick up ceramics for a reasonable price. You can also find the El Corte Inglés department store, and the Nervión mall is home to a number of department stores for those looking to shop ‘til they drop.

A trip to Seville isn’t complete until you’ve eaten tapas. Nearly every bar and restaurant serves tapas, from the typical croquetas and chorizo, to the more local cola de toro (oxtail) and Andalusian-style fried fish. Bar Alfalfa’s traditional décor includes jamón de Ibérico hanging above the bar, while El Rinconcillo, the oldest bar in Seville, serves tapas in a charming, rustic setting. For a slightly different take on tapas, try Bartolomea, where the sharing plates move away from the traditional tortilla and albondigas, instead ranging from grilled duck with caramelised onion, to bass with potato and lime puree. Meanwhile, La Petite Comite offers a high-end take on tapas, complete with French and Asian twists. Enjoy yakisoba noodles with chicken or salted shredded beef toasts in an intimate setting. Seville has no shortage of bars, and while many are decorated in traditional Seville style, with walls adorned with bulls’ heads and matador posters, there are those with a more modern twist. La Terraza de EME has a roof terrace that overlooks the cathedral and from which you can enjoy cocktails from an extensive list.

Feria de Abril

The April Fair sees Seville transformed, with over 1,000 temporary bars (casetas) lining the streets and a fairground with thousands of lights adorning it. The week-long party sees flamenco dancing, partygoers in traditional costume, bullfights and plenty of drinks including rebujito, all of which culminates in a spectacular firework display.

Bienal Flamenco

Every two years in September, Seville holds one of the biggest Flamenco festivals in the world, showcasing the best dancers, singers and guitarists. As well as performances in various locations including the Royal Alcazar, there are workshops and conferences.
