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.
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, a colorful market and 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 sit on the steps in front of the Cathedral, or you can line up and buy a ticket to go inside and enjoy religious artwork.
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 enjoy a Mojito with your friends while staying in Seville, Spain. The mojitos are reasonably priced and so good that they will make you want more.
