Do & See
Today’s Seville is a lively place, bustling with culture, music, exquisite food and unstoppable personality. Some of the city's main sights include the Moorish castle of Alcazar, the former upper-class neighbourhood of Santa Cruz, the promenades along the Guadalquivir River, the rougher Macarena neighbourhood with its Baroque churches, and the oldest bar in Spain, El Rinconcillo. The city’s gigantic Parque de Maria Luisa is worth visiting, as are the bohemian chic bars in the Alameda de Hércules district.

Cathedral Santa María de la Sede

This is the third-largest cathedral in Europe. It was originally built as a mosque in the 12th-century and its 328 feet-high minaret is now the Giralda clock tower. Christopher Columbus is buried inside the cathedral.

Plaza de Espana

This amazing massive building is the most impressive sight along with the cathedral and is a must-see when visiting Seville. It is located in the stunning Maria Luisa Park and was built for the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929, held in Seville. The style of this amazing building is inspired by the Renaissance with characteristic elements from the city: exposed brick and ceramics. Fun fact to know if you are a Star War fan; Plaza de España has been used for some of the scenes of episode II of George Lucas' Star Wars saga "Attack of the clones".

Alcázar

It is easy to mistake this for a Moorish palace, for it was built in the 1360’s by Moorish Muslim kings, with the lush gardens complementing the buildings perfectly. The upper levels of this spectacular palace are still used by the royal family, making it the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe.

Semana Santa

During Easter Week, Seville is transformed into a photographer’s paradise. Processions with the Virgin Mary and Jesus, the Nazarenos asking for penance, and colourful but not necessarily well-tuned orchestras all crowd the streets and fill the city with vibrant life.
