Enjoy the romantic sights and sounds of Seville. Explore the historical city centre by day, and make your way to the many bustling tapas restaurants, cafes and late-night bars at night. If you're brave, do as the locals do and try your hand at flamenco.
You'll find a host of exciting attractions to keep you busy during a short break in Seville. Start off by discovering all about the city's rich Moorish heritage with a visit to the Alcázar. Complete with breathtaking architecture, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is regarded as one of the best architectural gems in Seville.
When you're ready to escape the noise and hubbub of the city, head for María Luisa Park. This beautiful public space in the heart of Seville stretches alongside the east bank of the Guadalquivir River and is an ideal spot for a picnic, a quiet stroll or perhaps even a short afternoon nap.
While in the park, take time to visit Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares, with its exhibitions of folk art, or Museo Arqueológico Plaza de América where you'll find the Treasure of El Carambolo on display. The hoard contains items of jewellery dating back to the 8th century BC that were discovered three kilometres to the west of the city back in 1958.
Heading out from your hotel on foot is a great way to get a real feel for everything Seville has to offer. Lose yourself among the winding alleys of the Santa Cruz quarter, home to the Cathedral of Seville and a number of the city's oldest churches. Formerly part of a mosque, La Giralda tower now forms part of the cathedral and is the place to go if you want to enjoy outstanding views across the city.
Spend time browsing in the shops around Plaza Nueva and Plaza Duque de la Victoria, the heart of the city's shopping and commercial district. Of course, when you're ready to take the weight off, simply drop into one of the many bars and restaurants in the surrounding area to enjoy some delicious tapas.
While Seville is regarded as a vibrant city all year round, it really comes to life during the two main annual festivals. Semana Santa de Seville, or Holy Week in Seville, takes place in the week prior to Easter. Expect floats, parades and church services aplenty.
Time your visit a few weeks later to coincide with Feria de Abril and you'll get to experience Andalucía at play. Colour, dancing, drinking, horses and flamenco dresses are what this week-long festival in April is all about.
