A heady mix of haunting sights, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life, Seville is one of Europe’s most beautiful and inspiring destinations. The result of 2,000 years of ad hoc urban development, Seville’s cityscape is an exhilarating spectacle.
Seville is the most rewarding city in Spain and a place all travelers should visit at least once in their lives. It’s a great city, but it can be hard for a first-time visitor to know where to start. Here are my recommendations to plan the trip of a lifetime.
Are you planning to get bullfight tickets during your trip to Spain? While it can be a challenging task, here is all the practical information to buy your tickets easily. Purchase them online and forget about the hassle of having to go to the bullring’s ticket office.
Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is elaborately celebrated each year in Spain. Did you know that up to a million visitors flock to Seville for the spectacle? Join Sevillanos to fill up the streets while watching dozens of solemn and incredibly beautiful processions.
Spaniards are known for celebrating everything and anything with great gusto, pomp and ceremony, and none shows that more off than the Feria de Abril. Seville really comes alive in April with its own lavish fair full of parades, horses, parties, drinking, and more parties!
Seville is popular… and can be very busy. The Sevilla Card has been designed so you don’t have to carry around cash or wait in line to buy tickets, saving you time and money. Place your order, get your pass, and start enjoying it as soon as you get to Seville.
A few days ago I returned back home after 3 awesome weeks in Spain. I’m in love! Thanks for all the useful and accurate information that you provide in your site. It has proved incredibly helpful both while planning the trip and onsite.

My family and I recently finished a trip throughout Spain. After visiting your amazing country, we can definitely say that Sevilla is our favorite city thanks to your useful guide. We will be back!
Seville can be easily reached from abroad and other Spanish cities. Additionally, it is a relatively compact city, so combining your own two feet with low-cost public transportation is the best way of getting around. And forget about cars because parking in Seville is a nightmare!
There’s a world of magnificent Spanish history, art and culture just beyond the gates of Seville. So many amazing destinations can be reached on a day trip that you should allow some time to explore other areas of Andalucía. There’s a lot to discover.
A morning or afternoon spent at a flamenco class is a memorable experience that enhances your visit to Seville, the city considered the cradle of this passionate dancing style. It’s one of the favorite activities of Seville Traveller readers and no wonder they are so popular.
The Pabellón de la Navegación (or Navigation Pavilion) was inaugurated in early 2012 after several years of a total state of neglect. The original premises were built for the 1992 Universal Exposition that was held in Seville. Alas, the large majority of constructions and structures relating to the Exposition were simple left unattended…
The Pabellón de la Navegación (or Navigation Pavilion in English) was reopened in January 2012. It used to be one of the main attractions of Seville’s 1992 Universal Exposition. Unfortunately, the premises – including this building, were left unused once the fair ended.
If you plan to attend a Spanish bullfight in Seville, you should have a look at the official bullfighting schedule. It includes all the corridas that will be held during the season as well as the novilladas.
La Maestranza (Seville’s bullring) holds bullfights from March or April until October.
