Seville (map) is Andalusia’s capital. With heritage from the Arabs and from the Age of Discovery, as well as the flamenco scene, Seville is a diverse destination.
Its old town, with an area of 4 square kilometres (2 sq mi), contains three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Alcázar palace complex (map), the Catedral de Sevilla (map) and the *General Archive of the Indies (map).
Seville became one of largest cities in Western Europe in the 16th century. Coinciding with the Baroque period, the 17th century in Seville represented the most brilliant flowering of the city’s culture.

Seville is approximately 2,200 years old. The passage of the various civilizations instrumental in its growth has left the city with a distinct personality, and a large and well-preserved historical centre. In the 19th century Seville gained a reputation for its architecture and culture and was a stop along the Romantic “Grand Tour” of Europe.
Barrio Santa Cruz (map) is the old Jewish Quarter, the winding narrow lanes just east of the cathedral and north of Alcázar. It’s the most charming part of the city, with lots of bars and eating places, but it’s also the most touristy.
Feria de Abril (Seville Fair). Also known as “Feria de Sevilla” – a release after the somberness of Semana Santa. To say this is a huge party would be an understatement. Most if not all of Seville takes a week’s holiday and they plan for the fair months in advance. The fair is close to the river.
This must be one of the best funfairs in Europe – it takes weeks to assemble and pack up. Experience traditional dress, flamenco dancing (and the “sevillanas”, the traditional dance of the region of Seville), guitars, fino, great tapas and participants who dance with gusto and eat and drink the day and night away.
! Sevillanos are famous for their nightlife so if you don’t plan to be out at all hours yourself, then seek accommodation on a street without lots of bars and restaurants, or ask for a room set back from the street.
