Seville is everything you have ever dreamed a romantic city should be, and more. Its monuments, natural beauty, cuisine and events all come together to offer a surreal holiday experience. Let's start with the Santa Cruz neighborhood that has winding streets and pretty flowers that overhang brightly colored houses. It wouldnt be exaggerating to say that a walk through Santa Cruz feels like walking through a postcard.
Seville Cathedral is the third-largest cathedral in the world, only behind St. Peter's in Rome
and St. Paul's in London. La Giralda
Tower adjoining the cathedral stands tall; you can get dizzying views of the city by walking up to its topmost floor. Perched above it is the weather-vane called El Giraldillo, which has become symbolic of Seville.
Plaza de Espana, the main square
Plaza de Espana is the main square in Seville Centre. Impressive buildings, a giant fountain and canals make it the place to hang out at in town, probably one of the best areas to book a Seville holiday apartment
. Visitors spend hours admiring the detailed tiled displays around the plaza that depict local scenes from various regions in Spain. Parque Maria Luisa
situated right across the plaza welcomes tired visitors with ample shade and greenery after a long day of sightseeing. When it comes to food, Seville's restaurants and tapas bars serve up exotic Andalusian fare that is both delicious and cheap; it can't get any better than this.
Isla MagicaIsla Magica
was a temporary site erected on the Isla de Cartuja in Seville to host the 1992 Expo World Fair. However, the site was retained even after the Expo and converted into an amusement park in 1997. It has entertaining Spanish colonial theme rides for children and adults as well as various live shows. It is within walking distance of Seville Centre, so you can plan a fun day out with the family.
Bullfighting in Seville
Most people instantly associate bullfighting with Spain. This national sport is being banned in many parts of the country but still takes place in Seville. Take a tour of the Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza; if your holiday falls between April and October, you may actually get to watch some action inside this bullring. You will easily fall in love with Seville. With attractions this good, no one can blame you!
