On day 1 in Seville  you will get to understand why locals claim that “Sevilla tiene un color especial” as a famous Spanish song says… Here we provide you with ideas for a two day plan. More information is available on our Seville travel guide

“Sevilla tiene un color especial” claims a famous Spanish song… The soul of this city may emerge from the passion of Flamenco in the taverns of Triana neighborhood, or from the greedy conquistadores that populated it, or you may have to blame Easter for it. No matter where the truth is that few cities in the world can pride themselves on being a perfect mix of beauty and charisma.  Today you will learn about the history of Seville at the Alcazar, enjoy one of its most relaxing areas in Maria Luisa and, discover the passion of Flamenco in one of the flamenco shows in Seville.

The itinerary for the day

Insider´s hints

The Alcazar

The Alcazar . Not many people know that the Alcazar is one of Spain´s most visited monuments. It was always very visited, but having been used for Game of Thrones has increased its popularity. We strongly recommend booking a tour to avoid queues or get there very early and with your ticket booked

Archivo de Indias

Located right next to the Alcazar, the Archivo de Indias has some amazing documents in it like the ones used by Cirstonal Columbus to calculate the latitude and longitude of this first trip. The entrance ticket is free, and you will be able to enjoy an exciting video.

Horse-drawn carriage

This is an exciting way to enjoy Seville. You will find many people that offer a ride. In order to avoid problems with the prices, the City-hall fixes a price each year. We recommend checking the current price at the tourism office to ensure you know the exact amount to pay. 

Plaza de España

It is widely known today that the Alcazar has been used in Game of thrones. Fewer people know that La Plaza de España was used in Lawerence de Arabia. Seville turned out to be a real oasis for the filming crew after having spent weeks at the dessert in Jordan.

On your way to Triana 

Walk by the river. Once you leave the Park, we recommend not to enter Triana by the Puente de los Remedios, but to do it by the Puente de San Telmo to enjoy a walk next to the river.

Pescaito and tapas

Once you are finished with Flamenco we recommend you enjoy a bit of fried fish (pescaito) and tapas in Calle betis in Triana


Estimated walking time

1 hour – 3 hours

On day 2 in Seville you will get to know the world´s largest Cathedral, enjoy a walk and tapas at one of the most famous neighbourhoods in the world (Santa Cruz) and enjoy Seville as locals do by visiting Calle Sierpes and its shops and end your visit at the opinion-dividing largest wooden building in the world (Metropol parasol)

The itinerary for the day

Insider´s hints

Seville´s Cathedral

The cathedral of Seville is the world´s largest Cathedral. The old mosque was used as a church till 1402, but then the church authorities decided to build the largest Cathedral in the world. A guided tour is highly advisable.

Santa Cruz

The Santa Cruz district is very wel but there are still some thingsl unknown to most tourists, the Plaza de las Cruces in Santa Cruz neighbourhood is, in reality, a street that widens and where three crosses stand in the middle. If you pay attention, you will also find more crosses in the walls.

Santa Cruz

Besides the Plaza de Santa cruz (which gives its name to the district) and the romantic Plaza de Doña Elvira we recommend you Plaza de Alfaro. On the ground floor of the palace off Lope de Rueda there is a forging window which locals refer to as “La Reja del Diablo” . The design of this forge work is almost impossible to accomplish: “the devil´s work”.

Calle Sierpes
The origin of the name of his street hides a dark story, the sort you would find in a Stephen King novel. The street was known before as Calle Espaderos (blade maker) due to the number of workshops dedidcated to swords. But the name changed to Sierpes. Locals start to call it like that due to a legend. In the mid XV century children disappeared in Calle Espaderos and a huge snake (serpiente in Spanish) was found guilty. Locals started to refer to the street as Calle de la Sierpe.

Calle Sierpes
Do not miss these fantastic facades and shops. Confitería La Campana, Real Circulo de Labradores, papelería Ferrer, El cronometro , maquedano sombreros, abanicos Diaz and Robles Laredo bar (where you can actually stop for a well-deserved drink!)

Metropol parasol

You will be able to decide for yourself if you love it or hate! (Metrosol-parasol divided local opinions when it was built). Five inmense mushroom-like pillars hold up a gigantic undulating roof
