Seville Vacations

Situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville has a rich Moorish heritage, and used to be a prosperous port that carried out trade with the Americas. The streets and squares in the historic quarter of the capital of Andalusia are lively and busy. They treasure many constructions that have the World Heritage designation, and many districts are full of traditional culture, like Triana and La Macarena.

Museums and art centres, theme parks, cinemas, theatres and clubs are some of the many leisure options that a great city like Seville holds. Without forgetting, of course, the numerous terraces, inns and bars where visitors can experience one of the most deeply-rooted and tasty traditions in the city: "Going out for tapas".

Popular Things to Do
  • Giralda and Cathedral - Seville's cathedral, with its combination of Christian and Islamic architecture, is one of the most spectacular in Spain and was once the biggest in the world. Built on the site of a former mosque, the Giralda tower used to be a minaret.
  • Alcazar - Like the Giralda (above), the Alcazar is also of Moorish origins. The garden and fortress complex is a great dress rehearsal for visiting the Alhambra in Granada.
  • See a Flamenco Show - Cross the river and visit the old gypsy quarter of Triana, where the best flamenco bars can be found. Though the exact origins of flamenco are unknown, this part of Seville definitely played a part in its creation.
  • See a Bull Fight - Along with Ronda, Seville is seen as the birthplace of bullfighting. While bullrings in much of Spain are more for the tourists than true aficionados, Seville still attracts the die-hard fans.
