Seville has a delightful, laid-back atmosphere, due in no small part to its hot, dry climate. The streets are lined with palms and orange trees and there are many attractive parks and gardens, making Seville the perfect city break destination.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Seville is perfect for a city break as it's an extremely walkable city. If you're staying in the centre, nothing will be more than 20 minutes by foot, and the historic centre especially has been made into a pedestrian heaven. Stop here for a coffee and watch the world go by, and there are lovely walks along the River Guadalquivir.

The feria in Seville is a Spanish fiesta at its best, giving the gentry of Andalucia an opportunity to see and to be seen, and us a chance to experience all things Andalusian - sherry, Sevillanas, toros, flamenco dresses and horses.

SEVILLE CITY BREAKS

A Seville city break will inevitbaly be jam-packed with culture and history - it is the birthplace of the mythical Don Juan, and was the hometown of the painter Velazquez. The long Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula left indelible traces in Seville as in all of Andalucia.

La Giralda, the tower of the stunning cathedral is the best-known of the remaining Islamic monuments. The cathedral itself, once a mosque, is the largest church in the world, and houses the tomb of Columbus (although some say he is actually buried in Dominica).

The city's golden age was from the 15th to the 18th centuries, when it thrived as the gateway to the New World. Fortunately the city was more or less unscathed by the Spanish civil war, and in recent times it has once more become one of the most vibrant and enjoyable of European cities.

The local joie de vivre is perhaps most noticeable in the traditional tapas bar crawl that takes place most weekend evenings as people wander from tapas bar to tapas bar, sampling the speciality in each and washing everything down with a fino sherry or a cold beer.
