A city of celebration and culture where the sun shines almost 300 days a year, Seville is the perfect destination for a weekend or a week in Spain. Housed along the Guadalquivir River, which connects it to the Atlantic Ocean 70 kilometres away, the capital of Andalusia offers a marvellous Gothic architectural blend, the result of the successive passage of Greeks, Phoenicians, Arabs and Christians. Symbols of this beautiful diversity are its immense cathedral, which has turned the Giralda, the minaret of the old mosque on which it was built, into a bell tower, and of course the palace and gardens of the Real Alcázar, built by the Arabs and later refurbished by the Catholic kings. Alongside these two must-see monuments, Seville is also and above all full of traditional and modern neighbourhoods in which it is good to get lost, between monumental squares such as the Plaza de España or squares decorated with fountains and orange trees, colourful doors and windows, cobbled streets and green patios lined with azulejos. As soon as the temperature softens with the approach of nightfall, Seville puts on its festive clothes and invites you with a flamenco air in one of the tapas bars that brighten up its streets to meet a population that sometimes seems to live outside. The historic centre is full of treasures. A visit to the Andalusian capital may extend to the outskirts. It is a city that will appeal to sports enthusiasts, particularly with two renowned clubs playing in the top division: Sevilla FC and Betis Sevilla. Seville is undoubtedly one of the great Spanish cities like Madrid or Barcelona. This is a place you must visit in search of the mysteries that feed the folklore of the region! Don't wait any longer to take a trip.

The must-see places in Sevilla

When to go to Sevilla?

The best time to discover Seville is in spring (March to June). However, you should know that in April, tourist numbers are at their peak: it is during this time that Holy Week and the Feria are celebrated; accommodation prices sometimes increase by more than 50%! Petit futé advises you to visit Seville in September and October when the temperatures are still very pleasant and the Bienal del Flamenco is held (and the bullfighting season which only ends on October 12). In summer (July-August), it is stifling hot, the thermometer explodes and activity ceases (many establishments are closed). Autumn and winter are mild and quiet seasons. The Christmas season attracts a large number of tourists. You will find more practical information in your travel guide.
