The capital of the Andalusian region, Seville is famous worldwide for its culture, monuments and traditions. From its distinctive architecture, Andalusian charm and hours of sunshine, Seville certainly has a lot to offer.
Seville may be well known for its oranges, but the city has so much more to offer. One of the city’s most famous landmarks is the Alcázar, this is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe, as the upper levels are still used by the royal family. Scenes from Game of Thrones were also filmed in the Alcázar, so if you’re a fan of the show be sure to check it out. Another attraction well worth a visit is Plaza de España, the city’s impressive square, and renting a boat to row around the moat is the perfect way to explore the area.
The city boasts an impressive Cathedral, and those willing to climb the Giralda Tower will be treated to remarkable views, particularly of the Alcázar and Barrio Santa Cruz. If the climb is not for you, head to EME Rooftop Terrace and enjoy a cocktail and great views over the Cathedral, which is especially impressive after nightfall to see its spires and towers lit up.
For those looking to experience the Andalusian culture, head to La Carbonería, a traditional Spanish bar with authentic flamenco dancing and guitar. To sample some Andalusian cuisine, visit Mercado de la Encarnación, a food market with over 30 food stalls hidden underneath the famous Metropol Parasol. Metropol Parasol, also known as ‘Las Setas’, in the shape of giant mushrooms, is the largest wooden structure in the world.
