Seville, or Sevilla, is the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region. Not only famous for the best Flamenco dance, particularly in its Triana neighborhood, Seville is also known as one of the most beautiful cities in Spain.
What to do in Seville Spain?
In this article, you’ll find out the ten best things to do in Seville for your trip to Seville, including tips to make the best of your trip to this beautiful area of Spain.
1. Visit Plaza de España
Plaza de España is one of the best places to visit in Seville.
This place was rated as the best plaza in Spain, and I agree with that. I was utterly speechless by the stunning architecture of the square.
Built in 1928, Plaza de España is a plaza in the Parque de María Luisa. There’s a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge with numerous tiled bridges representing the four ancient Kingdoms of Spain.
I would recommend visiting in the afternoon because there are fewer people in Alcázar.
Also, the line is not that long in case you have not bought the ticket in advance.
The ticket costs 9.5 Euro and 3 Euro if you are a student (have to show your student card) Timetable
From October to March: From Monday to Sunday, from 09:30 to 17:00.
From April to September: From Monday to Sunday, from 09:30 to 19:00.

4. Wander around Centro Historico de Sevilla
Wandering around the Centro Historico de Sevilla is delightful.
The area has different architectural styles, and lots of narrow streets to get lost.
Just turn off your phone, throw away the map and wander to get the most out of your experience in this gem of the city.
In every corner, you will find beautiful local shops, several tapas restaurants, and bars.
5. Eat tapas for dinner
It’s Spain, so yes, trying tapas should be on your list of things to do in Seville.
What are tapas?
A tapa is a small portion of any Spanish cuisine, and it is considered as an appetizer or snack.
I love eating tapas because you can try several dishes in one meal and the price of each dish is affordable.
6. Try Halal food
Trying new food is always one of the best parts of travel!
As Seville has an Islamic culture, you should try some Halal food on your trip to Seville. You can find many Arabic restaurants in the city. I had Baked Halal Chicken Skewers with fried potato and salad for my lunch.
7. Spend the evening at Puente de Isabel II (Puente de Triana)
From Plaza de España, you can easily reach Puente de Isabel II.
It is one of the historic bridges of Seville. I walked along the river in the evening, and it was lovely. You can have a great view of the city from this bridge.
Crossing the bridge on your right is the Triana Market, which is a colorful market and also a house of the best flamenco show of all Seville at Casala Teatro.
8. Enjoy the view of the city at Metropol Parasol
Located at Plaza de Mayo, Metropol Parasol stands out from the rest of the city with large modern sculptures.
You’ll need to pay for the ticket to go up the top of Metropol Parasol, but it includes one free drink and a postcard.
Thus, this place is worth a visit to relax and enjoy a beautiful city view while sipping your beverage of choice. Also, my favorite restaurant is just located beneath the structure.
9. Visiting Seville Cathedral
Although I’ve visited several Cathedrals, Seville Cathedral still stands out. It’s awe-inspiring with the decoration from both outside and inside.
You can have a sit on the steps in front of the Cathedral, or you can line up and buy a ticket to go inside and enjoy religious artworks.
Note: You should not miss the tomb of Christopher Columbus and climb Giralda and the crocodile.
10. Pub crawling at night in Seville
Nightlife in Seville is chaotic. With bars and clubs open until the morning, Seville earns its reputation as a great party destination. Also, drinks are not expensive at the bars, so it’s budget-friendly.
Don’t forget to grab a beer or to enjoy a Mojito with your friends while staying in Seville, Spain. The mojitos are reasonably priced and so good that will make you want more.
Located in the Old Town of Seville, Toc Hostel Sevilla offers excellent service with a comfortable bed and clean room. You can wake up naturally with the sun over the cathedral, church bells, and chirping birds. One plus reason to stay at Toc Hostel is their common area and lovely bar at this hostel. The staffs are friendly, helpful and care about the customers.
