Our specialists ‘Must Do’

Visit the Plaza de España, a semi-circular Renaissance/neo-Moorish style building with a tower at either end. In front of the building, following the curve of its façade, is a 500-metre canal crossed by four bridges. Why not rent a small boat to row on the canal? All along the wall by the canal are 48 alcoves, one for each province of Spain, each with a colourful painted ceramic tile depicting a significant regional scene and map.

A little more about Seville

Seville or Sevilla as the locals know it is a captivating city by day and tremendously atmospheric at night. Whether visiting some of the cities historical monuments and grand palaces or just sitting in a bar with a selection of tapas, sipping a cold glass of sangria and watching the world go by, this is a city with a large array on offer for travellers. The old Jewish quarter, Barrio Santa Cruz, is a myriad of cobbled backstreets, lined with traditional tapas bars and restaurants often opening out onto a small plaza draped with colourful bougainvillea where locals come to sit under the shade of an orange tree.

The area is also home to one of our favourite boutique hotels, Hacienda de San Rafael. Located about forty minutes' drive from the city centre, it makes a perfect base for your holiday from which to explore all the Seville has to offer along with the many local olive groves, vineyards, beaches and villages in the area.

When to go

It is possible to visit Seville all year round; however, the best time to visit is during spring and late autumn.
