There is much of historical interest to be discovered in Seville, the river area is very attractive, the vast restaurant area is welcoming, the buildings are architecturally graceful, the Palace and Cathedral are both worthy of visits and it is worth noting that the cathedral, once a mosque, is of interest to Muslim and Christian tourists and both can be seen queuing side by side for access.
The streets of the Jewish Quarter are infuriating even with the best apps! Just be prepared! The afternoon heat is real! So just accept it and take a break from your excursions to recoup your energy, like to locals! Use a trusted source to plan your itinerary.
Many websites tend to hype the attractions so you end-up disappointed.
Lovely city. Definitely worth taking a trip down to the river and going for a stroll. The cathedral is exceptional however, you could have a great time just wondering around the streets looking at the buildings.
avoid holiday season, July-August. Lots of people and very hot (45 degree celcius). Not a great place to shop, but very nice to see cultural activities such as " Flamenco" and going to Arab Bath for siesta time
We found Seville to be an average city as compared to Granada or Barcelona in terms of beauty. Plaza Espana and city cathedral are worth a visit but other cities have a bit better monuments.
This was my first time in Spain and I was able to visit 5 different cities. While I enjoyed them all, Seville will be the one that I will be thinking about for a long time to come.
The next time I visit Seville will be on the top of my list to come back to.
Sevilla is divine, as is all of Andalucia. Much nicer people than in snooty Barcelona. And there is Cadiz, Jerez, Malaga, Cordoba and Granada - easily reached by RENFE.
By far, for me, the best region of all Spain.
Sevilla is very nice and everything is reachable by foot. During the week of 'la Feria' it is very packed but really worthwhile to visit the area.
People are very nicely dressed.
One of Spain's best cities, lots to see including sights just out of the centre. The main shopping area and cathedral is a must to visit.
The centre is traffic free with trams to take you to all the sights
Seville is a must to visit in the south of Spain. It has magnificent historic architecture and has a school for flamenco dancing.
I loved Seville and just wish I new more Spanish to communicate with the locals. It felt safe and transport around is a breeze.
The old city is great to wander and fabulous low cost flamenco concerts. There is lots to see and do and it is much more relaxed and far less touristy than Barcelona.
Seville is an interesting city full of Baroque churches which is the true essence of their religious devotion to catholicism.
The churches provide an excellent collection of Spanish religious art as well as museums with sculptures of saints. There is a Moorish influence in the architecture of its oldest buildings dating back to the 1300s. There is a bull ring built in the 1800s, the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza. Seville celebrates life with fiestas of traditional singing and Spanish dancing.
Amazing culture in this City. We were travelling and driving around Spain and Seville is on the top of the list.
As a small cultural town this place we imagine that one day we can return and stay for weeks to learn Spanish. A very lovely town and good seafood but we did find the food was a little salty at times.
Ville historique avec son apogée de la période Andalouse qui est tronquée par les guides et les revues locales.
La dynastie des rois ABADES (Inb Abad) qui a explosé le développement de cette région et a fait de cette ville la plus puissante de son époque ne trouvent même pas leur noms sur une place ou un boulevard quel dommage!!!
fascinating place, full of southern Spanish charm. totally relaxing place, enough to do n see for 4-5 days.
You should read previously written notes, blogs.You should not be there at the hearts of the summmer time.
But you have to visit the city at the rest of the year, especially during the feria de abril and semana santa
Love it, I'll be back. if you love culture, food, nightlife, history etc....its all there. beautiful city!
not a very big city but lots of cultural spots, such as Cathedral, Alcazar, Arab Bath and Falmenco dance.
A lovely town with good food and flaminco show. It is relaxing to stay at Seville for a short weekend.
We purchased a Seville Card before coming to the place. it depends on how many days you want to stay.
A one day card will get you entries into two museums etc, one boat ride on the Guadalquivir, and one drink in a good bar. I strongly recommend this as a minimum. It is really value for money. if you have more time, go to the Italica, a few kilometres from Seville, where you have large Roman ruins. Closed in summer, we were told, so we could not go. There are good Flamenco shows available. If you are going for more days, there are other places, but even for the shortest trip my recommendation would include the Seville Cathedral and the Girlada Towers, the Alcazar, and the Flamenco museum, plus the boat ride.
