Seville Spain

In Seville, not only is the weather hot and sunny for most of the year, but the city is bursting with colour. Think ripe oranges dangling from green trees, golden sandstone buildings adorned in blue and white tiles, and glasses of red wine served with Manchego cheese.

Known as ‘Sevilla’ in Spanish, this historic city is best explored on foot. Soak up the laid-back vibes along the banks of River Guadalquivir, or stroll along the footpaths of María Lucía Park to Plaza de España Square. Located on the park’s edge, this magnificent square flaunts a variety of architectural styles, and four bridges that represent each of Spain’s ancient kingdoms. You can hire a rowing boat and slowly make your way along the curved moat that runs beneath them.

The Andalusian capital is also home to Spain’s largest cathedral. Be sure to get a good look at the Gothic-style exterior before entering to see the tomb of none other than Christopher Columbus. And you can find peace in the neighbouring Alcázar of Seville – a grand and iconic example of Mudéjar architecture, with its beautiful mosaic-tiled interior and sumptuous gardens known for their cascading fountains.

Seville hums with energy at night, from crowded tapas bars to nightly performances at the Flamenco Museum – a gorgeous 18th-century building built on the foundations of an old Roman temple.
