Also called the Flamenco capital in Spain! Seville is one of the warmest cities in Spain exceeding 40 degrees in summer. It is a very important city in Spain considering the culture, politics and economy. Located at the banks of the river Guadalquivir, Seville has one of the biggest historic centres of Europe which of course include amazing sights and activities.
Due to its weather it is recommended to visit Seville in spring, when the city is filled with flowers and orange trees on the streets and of course in the parks, where you can rest and enjoy the quietness. Since Seville is THE city of flamenco, you cannot leave without visiting a flamenco show. If you are lucky enough you will might even spot a live performance in the streets. And apart from the cathedral and Plaza España, which are other must-sees, it is recommended to visit one of the many festivals and fairs the city offers during the year, e.g. during the holy week, a big celebration of several days, or in April the ‘Feria de Abril’ with lots of music, gastronomy, flamenco and colourful customs.
Who knows Seville knows about the Guadalquivir, the river that goes right through the capital city of Andalusia. The river is the perfect attraction for tourists excited to make a trip by boat or kayak. The river provides wonderful views on Seville and during the nights you will be able to see the lights brighten up the bridges.
Seville features amazing hotels with access to the best views of the city. Take a look at the 5 star EME Catedral Hotel for example. This hotel is located in the city centre and provides the most amazing view on the cathedral and its 100m high belfry, the Giralda. The hotel has an avant-garde design with city luxury. The Hotel Silken Al Andalus 4 star hotel is another great option, especially for big groups, as this hotel offers more than 600 rooms. Casa Palacio de Carmona, located at 30km from Seville is apart from a great venue for any kind of event also a different accommodation. This renovated palace dating back to 1561 is an alternative place for those enjoying nature and who want to leave the busy city life.
In Seville the time for dinner starts around 8 in the evening. In the summer this even changes to 9.30 pm, this because it stays warm until very late. There are many options in Seville, in a restaurant, a bar or a wine bar. Order a few traditional tapas like ‘Cola de Toro’ (bull tail) or the ‘Salmorejo’ (tomato cream soup with garlic and bread). Or go on adventure and be surprised. There is definitely something for everyone.
