What to see and do in Seville?
Seville is a small but diverse city. There is so much to see and do in Seville that you should plan to visit for at least 3 days.
Most visitors to Seville start with a visit to the Seville Cathedral and the nearby Alcazar royal palace. While at the Cathedral you should know about the dress code as you could be denied admission if you do not comply with the dress code. After visiting the main building, you should consider visiting the Giralda clock tower, or go on the Cathedral roof tour.
When you visit the Alcazar of Seville, know that your visit includes an option to visit the Royal Apartments (Cuarto Real) for a separate fee. If you have an evening free you could take the Alcazar Night tour. The Alcazar has been used as a location for shooting sequences from Game of Thrones.
There are many worthwhile attractions in the historic centre of Seville, including the more recent Metropol Parasol where you can go to the roof for views of the city. Or you could go into the basement to see the Roman ruins. There is also the Museum of Fine Arts, a world class museum that often gets missed.
The Santa Cruz Jewish quarter has narrow lanes and quiet squares to spend an afternoon. Or you could take a horse carriage tour; head over to the majestic Plaza Espana where you can rent a boat. Or you could explore Maria Luisa Park on a bicycle; Seville has a very good bike sharing service called Sevici.
Seville is the spiritual capital of Flamenco. You must catch a flamenco performance at one of the authentic tabloas. If you know the local secrets, you can enjoy flamenco performance for free .
You must visit Triana - across the river - on your trip to Seville. There is lots to do in Triana, from tapas along the river to ceramics shopping, and traditional flamenco shows. There is the Spanish Inquisition museum to visit, and the nearby produce market as well. Triana also has old Roma (gypsy) communes where Flamenco evolved over the centuries.
You Seville experience should also include a flamenco performance and a visit to a traditional Arab Hammam; make sure to book in advance.
