Europe Travel

Seville Travel Diaries

If there was ever a city to get lost in, this is it. Seville is my favorite city in Europe for a few reasons. The first being the beautiful buildings, architecture and history everywhere you turn. Second, there is so much to see and do and something to suite everyone. Third, Seville is located in mainland Spain so it’s fairly easy to get to with regular direct flight deals on offer.

As I said above, there are endless things to see and do in this city. A trip here would be perfect for a girly weekend, a romantic break away or even family holiday. But be warned, it gets extremely hot here especially in the summer, I went in March and it was about 25- 30 degrees which felt perfect however it can go up to 40- 50 degrees in the summer months which is really not an ideal temperature for walking around sightseeing!

Here is my top must sees in Seville:

Plaza de Espana

Measuring 50,000 square meters, the Plaza is the size of five football pitches surrounded by a stunning semi-circular building with superb towers at each end.

Photo opportunities are endless here, as you can see below!

The Royal Alcazar palace and gardens

This is what I hope heaven looks like. You could spend all day here exploring the gardens and buildings. The Alcazar is divided into sections dating from a succession of eras: Moorish (11th-12th century), Gothic (13th century), Mudejar (14th century), and Renaissance (15th-16th century).

Game of thrones fans, this was used for the location of the Water Gardens of Drone.

Seville Cathedral (Catedral de Sevilla)

One of the largest Christian churches in the world, this cathedral will leave you breathless with its sheer majesty on both its inside and outside exterior.

Roman Ruins of Itálica

Itálica is a small village right outside Seville and is the home of a ancient roman archaeological ensemble and large amphitheater. The village is an easy drive outside of Seville and entry to the ruins are free to European passport holders.

Parque Isla Magica

Spain’s answer to Disney land with a 16th century Spain twist. If you’ve had enough of sight seeing head here to bring out your inner child.
