Images Of Seville

When people discuss what Spanish city you get to experience the 'real' Spain, where the streets are deserted during siesta time, Flamenco music rings through the streets at night and tapas bars abound every corner, they regularly refer to Seville. This city in the south of Spain bears all these trademarks. It's also home to one of Europe's most breathtaking cathedrals and has a Moorish royal palace right in the heart of the city centre. And as it's such a prominent university city, attracting students from all four corners of the globe, it gets into full swing every night once the sizzling sun sets.

    Warm and friendly

    Though I was only in Sevilla for 15 hours, I feel that I got to enjoy quite a bit of the nightlife and some daytime activities too. The place is full of culture and beautiful things to see!

    Insider Tip:join a walking tour to get to know the city and culture a bit better.

    Favourite city in Spain

    Stunning scenery, very picturesque. Lots to see, would recommend Alcazar (like the Alhambra's little sister), cathedral, plaza de Espana, bullring. Wish I had spent more time here. Easy to walk anywhere you wanted.

    Insider Tip:Just get lost in the streets around the Alcazar, I found this wonderful orange shop down some side street which served the best fresh orange juice anywhere I went to in Seville. Also I found the restaurants in the side streets better than any of the more touristy places.

    most beautiful city

    i spent 5 months in seville to study and i fell in love with the city the day i got there. up to now it's still the most beautiful city i've ever seen and i'd highly recommend to everyone to spend a few days here (better in september/october than in summer). it's the perfect size, as it's big enough to be able to party in more than just 3 different clubs and to have enough shopping possibilities and stuff like that, but it's also small enough to feel at home easily and to walk everywhere.

    Insider Tip:you definitely have to get breakfast (tostada and fresh orange juice) at los puentes at las setas. it's a really spanish cafe and really really good. another spot to have breakfast is "la cacharreria", also at las setas and afterwards a cookie just opposite it.

    I've been in Seville in July and the only problem was the weather - it's way too hot in this time. There are for sure a lot of things to do and to see, as Plaza de Espana, Cathedral, Plaza de Toros. If you're going to shop keep in mind siesta.

    Insider Tip:Go to a free tour offered by hostels: guides not only know the city and its history well, but also tell the stories interesting.

    I love Sevilla. I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and Sevilla and Spain are definitely my favorite places. You cant beat the culture, nightlife and friendliness of Spaniards and Sevillanos. Its an amazing city with lots of rich history and tons of things to do.

    Insider Tip:I really enjoy going to the maria luisa park, partying on calle betis at night (dont go before 2 am anywhere in spain), the new tapas market on the sevilla side of the triana bridge, and walking through the quiet streets of Triana, my favorite neighborhood in the city.
