More About Seville


Seville draws attention for its numerous attractions. It pays homage to flamenco, a lively storytelling dance accompanied by guitar. In the heart of Seville is the Plaza de España, with a canal neighboring María Luisa Park and sculptures decorated in mosaic blue and yellow azulejo tiles. The largest Gothic cathedral in the world is the Cathedral of Seville, which preserves artwork and is where Christopher Columbus was entombed. The Giralda, or bell tower of the cathedral, offers exceptional views of the city outside, and orange trees offer a sweet fragrance. Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold, originally covered in gold tiles) is a watchtower on the banks of the Guadalquivir River. Near the Torre, you will find the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, a legendary bullfighting ring. There is something for everyone here!

A week or more in Seville alone would be ideal, especially during the Semana Santa celebration, when the city becomes a giant street party. With more time on your hands, Cádiz, Jerez de la Frontera, and Sanlúcar de Barrameda form a three- or four-day jaunt through flamenco, sherry, Andalusian equestrian culture, and tapas emporiums.

The best months to go are October and November, and April and May. It's blisteringly hot in the summer. Autumn catches the cities going about their business, the temperatures are moderate, and you will rarely see a line form. December through March tends to be cool, uncrowded, and quiet, but come spring, it's fiesta time, with Seville's Semana Santa (Holy Week, between Palm Sunday and Easter) the most moving and multitudinous. April showcases whitewashed Andalusia at its floral best, every patio and facade covered with flowers from bougainvillea to honeysuckle.
