Best For… Sun-Kissed Strollers: The Alcázar of Seville
Spend an afternoon simply taking in the breathtaking sights of Seville with a little help from The Alcázar of Seville. The palace is often named as one of the most beautiful buildings in Spain, and it’s easy to see why. In recent years, The Alcázar has been used as a filming location for popular series Game of Thrones.
Best For… Traditional Sightseers: Seville Cathedral
No trip to Seville would be complete without seeing the awe-inspiring Seville Cathedral, and let’s be honest – it’s pretty hard to miss. It was registered in 1987 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and, due to a stipulation, still owns the coveted title of ‘largest cathedral in the world’.
Best for… Design Fanatics: Metropol Parasol
Head to the old quarter of Seville and gaze up at this magnificent wooden structure, designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer. The Metropol Parasol was finished in 2011 and claims to be the largest wooden structure in the world. The building is commonly known as Las Setas de la Encarnación (Incarnation’s mushrooms).
Best For… Fun-Loving Families: Isla Mágica
Travelling to Seville with the kids in tow? Take a trip to the adventurous Isla Mágica! With a range of water rides, theme park attractions and seasonal events, there’s something for everyone at this popular venue. What’s more, there’s plenty of on-site restaurants, cafes and drink stops, so you can spend the day there with ease.
Best For… Culture Vultures: Flamenco Dance Museum
Step back in time and learn all about flamenco dancing including its rich history and culture at this city centre museum. The 18-century building is home to a range of flamenco paraphernalia and artefacts, and live shows are frequently performed for an authentic experience. To truly get into the flamenco spirit, be sure to take a trip to a flamenco social club, where you’ll be able to pick up some signature moves yourself!
Best For… Nature Enthusiasts: Acuario de Sevilla
Everyone loves an aquarium, right? Especially when there’s such a wide variety of sea creatures to check out! Pay a visit to Acuario de Sevilla and enjoy this attraction at your leisure. The aquarium is open 365 days a year (yes, really) and offers frequent special dinners and yoga classes for those who want to get even closer to the creatures.
Best For… New Flavours: Rose Petal Jam (Served by Nuns)
Take a walk around Seville and you’ll come across a fair few convents, each inhabited by a friendly group of nuns who support themselves by making convent sweets. This age-old tradition includes a spinning turntable, an unseen nun and a variety of sweet treats; including cookies, pastries and, famously, rose petal jam. Once you’ve popped your donation on the turntable, it will spin and your treat will be ready to enjoy!
Best For… Foodies: Lonja de Feria Food Market
We could happily eat all of this right now… and it’d taste even better with the hot Seville sunshine beaming down on you, right? No matter what your tastes and budget, the Lonja de Feria Food Market is a bustling and exciting way to discover new flavours on your Seville break.
