What to see in Seville in 2 days

This may not seem like enough time to explore a city like Seville, but the friendly locals and pleasant climate (most of the year) make the days last longer, enabling you to fit more things into your schedule. This itinerary includes essential stops, such as the Royal Alcázares, Plaza de España and the Giralda. It also invites you to explore other neighbourhoods, such as Triana, which house lesser-known treasures and dozens of restaurants, ranging from traditional to modern, where you will be welcomed with open arms. Are you ready to make the most of Seville?

Real Alcázar de Sevilla (Royal Alcázar of Seville)

This fortress—a royal residence during medieval times—features palace quarters, courtyards and beautiful gardens. The architecture is a combination of Baroque, Renaissance, Gothic, Mudejar and Moorish styles. It has served as a filming location for the series Game of Thrones.

12:00 - 1:30 PM

Cathedral and Giralda

The Seville cathedral is known for its size and beautiful altarpiece, and because it is the resting place of Christopher Columbus. Adjacent to the cathedral is the Giralda, and we encourage you to visit the top of this minaret-belfry, that stands at over 100 metres, and enjoy the views.

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Tapas in El Rinconcillo

As one of the most traditional tapas bars in Seville, it will feel like you have travelled back in time the moment you walk through the door. Enjoy its authentic feel and traditional tapas. In addition to being very unpretentious, the prices are very reasonable.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Metropol Parasol (Las Setas)

Plaza de la Encarnación is the location of Metropol Parasol, a wooden structure designed by Jürgen Mayer and popularly known as Las Setas. It is claimed to be the largest wooden structure in the world. The panoramic views of the city from the top are incredible.

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold)

The Tower of Gold, a recurrent theme in popular songs, is also worth visiting. Originally connected to the Royal Alcázar, its purpose was to defend the city. It currently houses the Maritime Museum.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Muelle de Nueva York (New York Pier)

Taking a walk by the Guadalquivir and feeling the breeze from the river is always a pleasant experience. Be sure to take a boat ride to take in the city from a different perspective, or stop by the terraces at the Muelle de Nueva York for a snack.

8:30 PM - 10:00 PM
