Cathedral & La Giralda

The Cathedral and La Giralda are the two must see attractions in Seville. “Let’s build a cathedral that is so great that the future generations think that we were mad” was the mantra of the constructers of the cathedral and it explains its impressiveness and beauty. The cathedral of Seville was built between the years 1434 and 1517 on the place of a mosque and the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. If you look for historical things to see in Seville, this is your place: The cathedral of Seville is the final resting place of Christopher Columbus and one of the most iconic landmarks of Seville. La Giralda was originally a minaret of a mosque and nowadays the tallest bell tower of Sevilla, which offers impressive views of the city. The climb to the tower is made with 34 ramps because, according to the legend, the constructors of the hotel wanted to be able to climb in on horseback.

Plaza de España and Parque María Luisa

Plaza de España, originally built for the Ibero-American Exposition in 1929 is one of the most known attractions in Spain. It’s surrounded by beautiful canals, built with Sevillian azulejos (ceramic tiles) and it has a part displaying pictures of local food and monuments from every one of the 50 provinces of Spain. For movie-related things to see in Seville, the Plaza de España is perfect: Star Wars fans may also recognize the square and the building since they appeared in the second Star Wars movie. Parque María Luisa is a large colourful garden dating back to the 1500s where one can spot the Sevillanos on a leisurely afternoon stroll. It’s full of artful fountains, sculptures, pavilions, ponds and beautiful banks of flowers as well as some Sevillian charm.

Metropol Parasol

Metropol Parasol, or las setas (the mushrooms), as the Sevillanos call them, were built in 2011 by the German architect Jürgen Mayer-Hermann to occupy the empty space of Plaza de la Encarnación and to liven up a quieter part of town. If your type of things to see in Seville are the architectural ones, don’t miss out on this one! Metropol Parasol said to be the largest wooden structure in Europe and offers a stunning view of the skyline of Sevilla, especially during the evening when it’s illuminated.

Barrio Santa Cruz

Barrio Santa Cruz is a neighbourhood, or more precisely a maze of colourful narrows streets dating to the 15th century is filled with flamenco, orange trees and undiscovered restaurants and shops with interesting things to see. In Seville, this is the neighbourhood where on the hot Andalusian evenings one can find the locals enjoying their tapas and refreshing cervezas in a Sevillian fashion. We recommend that you take a very precise map with you to this neighbourhood since it is extremely easy to get lost in the labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys. If this happens you can always sit down in a local bar to enjoy some tapas with a glass of wine and ask the locals how to leave the neighbourhood – if you still want to.
