The horse drawn carriage tour is a very popular attraction in Seville. It’s a great experience to get an overview and orientation of the city, especially if you are short of time.
A horse drawn carriage tour is very romantic
The use of horse drawn carriages started long time ago, when the Feria de Abril was starting to become a tradition in Seville. At that time, important personalities and wealthy families used this carriages to get to the April’s Fair facilities. They went there either to enjoy the event or to acquire some products.
Currently, a regular horse drawn carriage fits up to six people although you’ll be pretty squeezed. It’s great for four people and the ideal would be just two. If it rains or the sunrays are incredibly strong, some of the carriages have a retractable roof. Just in case, wear a hat or a cap especially if you are travelling with children.
