The Tourist Attractions of Seville:

Seville is Spain’s fourth largest city and one of its most popular tourist destinations. It’s full of culture and beautiful architecture, so there’s plenty to see and do for everyone.

Seville Cathedral
Many of Seville’s landmarks are large and grand, and the Cathedral of Seville is no exception! Officially named the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, this is actually the largest gothic cathedral in the world, and said to be the third largest church in the world. Seville Cathedral is built on the site of a former mosque and was constructed between 1401 and 1519, and is beautiful both inside and out. Inside is the burial site of one of Spain’s most famous heroes, Christopher Columbus.

Outside, the Giralda is one of Seville’s taller landmarks. It was formerly the minaret for the mosque that stood here and was converted into a bell tower. You can buy an entrance ticket for both the cathedral and the Giralda, and climb the ramps up to the top of this bell tower for some fabulous views over Seville.

The Alcazar of Seville
Originally a Moorish fort, the Alcazar of Seville is now a royal palace and is one of the best remaining examples of Mudejar architecture. Still used in parts by the royal family, Seville’s Alcazar is open to the public anyway, and is definitely worth the visit. Along with the Cathedral of Seville, the Alcazar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and when you enter inside you can see why.

Plaza de Espana
Another large landmark of Seville is the Plaza de Espana. This is not as old as some of Seville’s other landmarks though it is designed in a Renaissance revival style, so appears older than it is. It was actually built in 1928 for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition inside Maria Luisa Park, where the exposition, or World Fair, was taking place.

Museums in Seville
As well as the wonderful architecture Seville features some excellent museums. The Museum of Fine Arts of Seville is one of the best known as it features many masterpieces from history, as well as Flemish paintings of the 15th and 16th centuries. As well as the Plaza de Espana inside Maria Luisa Park, the park is home to two museums; the Archaeological Museum, and the Museum of Traditional Arts and Customs, great if you are interested in the culture of Seville.

When Should You Visit?:

Seville has a lovely Mediterranean climate and the summer months of July and August are hottest – the average high is 35C though daytime highs get higher than this making this probably a little uncomfortable for sightseeing. October and May are both great times to visit as temperatures are a little cooler, and of these May is the drier and slightly warmer month.
