Seville City Guide

What to see & do during a weekend break in Seville.

…Except just eating the endless Tapa’s of course!

We stayed in the beautiful Corral Del Rey, which could not have been a better location! It is right in the heart of Seville, with only a maximum 15 minute walk away from all of the main sights. We didn’t step foot on public transport once, which I think is quite rare during a city break.

It is so easy to access everything by foot. A friend recommended we walk everywhere to experience the real Seville, to see all of the little cobbled side streets, she wasn’t wrong, that is where the real Seville is!

The Corral Del Rey has six absolutely stunning rooms, all with a different style. We stayed in the Deluxe Double Room which is PERFECT! It has a full minibar with a little kitchen area (microwave, fridge, kettle, coffee machine) gorgeous bathroom with a huge bath and one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in!

The breakfast is amazing too, it is all freshly made in the morning, you can either enjoy it inside the restaurant or out on the terrace near the little plunge pool overlooking the city views.

If you’d like to see more of The Corral Del Rey take a look at my ‘Seville’ Instagram highlight!

The Plaza de España is a must when you visit Seville. It’s located inside the Maria Luisa Park which is about a 15 minute walk from Corral Del Rey. The detail in the building is absolutely insane, it’s stunning! We spent the morning wandering around taking it all in & enjoyoing the views. It was really quiet when we arrived at 9:30am, but it started to get busy by around 11am ish. I would definitely try and arrive as early as you can to beat the crowds! It is totally free to access.

Las Setas has lots of different names…You may have heard of the Metropol Parasol or ‘The Mushroom.’ It costs 3 euros per person to experience the view point, but I do think it is worth it to get the views. Plus it is a great central point to find some of the best tapas spots.

From Las Setas, if you walk down Calle Regina you will find lots of cool little art-cafes & design shops, it was exactly how we imagined Seville!

We were heading towards Quilombo, which is a restaurant that was recommended to us. It has the most amazing tapa’s and sharers! If you carry on walking from Quilombo you will come to La Alameda, which is a square packed full of other great restaurants.

The Real Alcazar is where scenes from Game of Thrones are filmed!

If you’re a fan it’s definitely a must see. I’ve never seen a single GOT, but I still found it an incredible place to visit. It’s quite pricey though at €18 a ticket. (I’ve just seen online they do free entry on a Monday, that could be worth factoring in if you’d like to visit!)

It is such a stunning place but it was VERY busy. We booked a slot at 11am & there were people everywhere. It was too busy for me! 11am was the only time slot we could get, I imagine it’s much quieter earlier in the morning, I really wish we didn’t book our tickets so last minute!

Planning a trip to Seville? Let me know if you have any questions!

There are lots more pictures over on my Instagram.

    I haven’t heard about this city so I need to google it where it is located however, I had this vibe feeling its somewhere in Spain, and gotcha! I was totally right. The places and photos you have captured remind me so much of our culture too here. That place is stunning!

    While everyone is saying it’s perfect it’s nice etc etc. I must say I will admit only when I personally experience myself. Joking. Even I loved it. Hehe

    Oh my goodness, Seville is gorgeous! Or maybe it’s just the beautiful photos you took and chose to share. I would like to go there right now – and after walking through the city sit in one of those courtyards just relax. Yes, I’d have some tapas, too, please!

    Seville is one of our favorite cities to visit and I can’t wait to go back because the seafood was fabulous. We stayed in Corral de San Jose self catering apartments and found it to be really comfortable for our family of five and close enough to walk to everything in the old town too.

    I had to go back to this post to show it to my husband. He is just so amazed at how pretty Seville is. My brother was in Spain for a business meeting about two months ago, but he was in Barcelona and Madrid. Hopefully, me and my husband can do some travels this year.

      Ohhh great! We did the same, we flew into Malaga, then drove to Seville and then to Estepona to spend a couple of days by the beach. Hope you have a good time! 💗
