Things to do in Sevilla
Seville’s cathedral stands on the site of the former Great Mosque. The clearest evidence of this is its best-known icon: La Giralda, a twelfth-century minaret converted into a bell-tower.
Situated on the other bank of the river, the Triana neighbourhood has its own identity, which you will discover by tapas-bar hopping, strolling its streets and getting to know its traditions.
The Isla Mágica theme park, situated on what was once the site of the Seville Expo ‘92, is a great place to visit with or without kids.
Arcos de la Frontera is, without a doubt, one of the most picturesque towns in Andalusia, with its houses suspended over a ravine of the Guadalete river.
Carmona, just under half an hour by car from Seville, is packed with monuments and is one of the most photogenic towns in the province.
Stately Osuna reveals its beautiful side in its palaces, temples and streets. A day trip from Seville that transports you to another age.
Seville’s Plaza de España, the main building constructed for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, symbolises the embrace between Spain and its former colonies.
Discover this defensive watchtower, dating from the time of the Almohads, which is famous for its golden reflection, as well as being the subject of a host of legends, and the present home of the Maritime Museum.
La Esperanza de Triana is one of the most revered Lady of Sorrows in Seville. This image and symbol of Triana bears the dark features of an Andalusian woman.
Seville’s Feria de Abril kicks off with the “prueba del alumbrao” (switch-on) when thousands of light bulbs are turned on to illuminate the gates to the fair. It all ends seven days later with fireworks over the Guadalquivir.
