Seville, Spain [UPDATED]

Last visit to Seville [April, 2023]

I recommended Seville as part of a trip to South of Spain Itinerary post, after my second visit to Seville, I’ve updated this post which could help you plan your next visit to Seville!  Seville pronounced in Spanish (sevi”y”a). One of the most beautiful cities i’ve seen in the South.

Accommodation Suggestions:

  • EME Hotel. A nice hotel recommended by locals, and in front of the cathedral.
  • Hotel Casas de la Judería. In the historic city center. Lots of patios and nice views. (loved it)
  • Hostal Callejon del Agua. A very small hotel but convenient and cute.
  • YH Giralda. Near the EME hotel, very good  location.
  • Plácido y Grata
  • Unuk
  • Las Casas del Rey de Baeza
  • Hotel Casa 1800 Sevilla
  • Hotel Palacio De Villapanes – AlmaSevilla
  • Hotel Amadeus
  • Triana House

Walk around & Discover:

During the day, go and walk around Plaza Nueva, Plaza de San Francisco and Plaza del Salvador. These are the main three squares and each is next to the other. There, you can find many tapas bars, and terraces if the weather is good. Also, go walk around Barrio de Santa Cruz which is the old city centre. This area is probably a bit touristic (as most city centers) but is worth visiting.
In the afternoon/evening you could go to to the Arenal area. In this area you can see the bullfighting ring (called “Maestranza”) which has an interesting museum about bullfighting history in Sevilla. Around the Maestranza there are many bars and restaurants. A restaurant I tried and recommend BIG TIME is called “Bulla” located in calle Dos de Mayo.

Tourist Spots and Attractions:

Must seesAlcazar, Catedral and Archivo de Indias.Ofcourse, there is always the Hop-On Hop-Off bus/tour where you could by a ticket and use it to go around the city. I believe the ticket is valid for two days or such and you could easily get the ticket from either your hotel or the station of the bus.

Try to also see/do;

– I’ve taken an amazing segway tour with “ensegway” company. It passed by the old town, plaza españa, the gardens, cathedral – basically all the important spots.

-Barrio Santa Cruz

– Plaza de España

– Maria Luisa’s Park (there are old bulding from the Universal Exposure in 1929)

– Puente de Triana (Bridge) & walk around Triana

There are a few nice terraces and cafes to enjoy the view in the Plaza de America. If you’re into Flamence; Flamenco was born in Sevilla. You could arrange to learn & take Flamenco lessons.  Otherwise, you could arrange with your concierge to book a Flamenco show with a dinner if you prefer. If you’ve never seen a flamenco show in your life, I highly recommend its fun and loud!!

I’ve visited the Flamenco Museum which is a museum with Flamenco shows, the BEST flamenco Ive yet seen. Amazing!


  • Bulla
  • Perro Viejo

Visit Osuna

A small town near Seville to fans of Game of Thrones!

Visit Ronda

An option is to do a day trip to Ronda. You rent a car and drive there. Ronda is absolutely BREATH-TAKING. It was one of my favorites parts about Andalucia. If you don’t feel comfortable driving, there is an option where it could be arranged via a day tour that includes watching a bull-fight. For more information on this feel free to ask me and i shall provide you with the details.
