Seville: City Profile
The capital of Andalusia and the fourth most populous city in the country, there is plenty more to historic Seville than its sporting traditions.
Things to do in Seville
1. Get blown away by the cathedral: Built between 1401 and the 16th century, the Catedral de Sevilla, considered the biggest Gothic temple in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, will leave you awestruck. Make sure you stop by Christopher Columbus' tomb for a photo.
2. Enjoy its gastronomic universe: To officially be part of Seville, you must discover its delicious culinary traditions, from Iberian ham on a crunchy toast for breakfast to its traditional variety of tapas, all to be enjoyed in good company on one of the city's many terraces.
3. Visit the Mercado de Triana: In the heart of the Triana neighbourhood, you'll find the bustling indoor bazaar of the Mercado de Triana. Get lost in its numerous alleyways and be sure to try a delicious glass of sherry from the nearby Jerez region.
4. Get a feel for history at the Real Alcázar: This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must. With its palace and gardens, you will dive into an astonishing journey through time, from the Arabic period to the Renaissance. Fun fact: the palace is still used by the Spanish royal family.
5. Go up the tower: La Giralda will offer you a breathtaking view of Seville's city centre. You can access it directly from the cathedral, so you might as well make the most of your visit to the city's historical centre and start climbing to reach the top of this 104m-high tower!
