What to see in Seville

Seville Attractions


Wandering the narrow maze of Santa Cruz, Seville's most romantic neighbourhood - balconies, flowers and stately mansions - is one of the best tourist experiences in Spain, and can occupy visitors for days, with courtyard cafes, bars and restaurants to rest at whenever the charming labyrinth becomes overwhelming. Seville is a city best explored on foot, and Santa Cruz is one of the districts where tourists can tap into the soul of this special Spanish destination.

Other famous Seville attractions include the enormous Seville Cathedral, one of the biggest Gothic churches in the world; the recently renovated Plaza de Espana, the stately square constructed in 1929; and the Maria Luisa Park, one of the loveliest green lungs in Europe. However, the city's most famous attraction is the UNESCO-listed Alcazar of Seville, an ancient palace complex considered one of Spain's great treasures. Visitors to Seville should also be sure to take in a cultural performance as the city is alive with authentic Spanish music and Flamenco.

Additionally, there are several wonderful performing arts venues, including the Casa de la Memoria de Al-Andalus and La Casa del Flamenco Auditorio Alcantara. Good museums in Seville include the Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes de Sevilla (Museum of Fine Arts).
