Experiences

There is a wide range of activities that you can do in Seville:

  • Tapas! – the first thing that pops in mind when we talk about food and Seville. The sheer variety of this appetizer is astounding and although this delicacy is found all over Spain, Seville has the best ones. There is even a whole district known for numerous tapas bars, but the most visited are those in the proximity of The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Sea and Casa Morales.
  • You can also go Kayaking on the river Guadalquivir. The activity is a lot of fun. The navigable river affords some unique sightseeing opportunities like the Maestranza and the Torre del Oro. Kayakers are given training and taught basic some techniques. This activity lasts approximately 2-3 hours and it is advisable that you book in advance.
  • You can also climb the top of La Giralda to get a panoramic view of the city. The tall minaret is a bell tower, and there are no lifts installed.  The tower has 35 ramps which facilitate the climbing. The Giralda is a combination of different architectural styles and affords a stunning view of the city. The admission to the bell tower is included if you visit the Cathedral.
  • Participate in a bicycle tour. These tours are a fun and flexible way to see many of the city’s landmarks. There are many tours to choose from and several bicycle rental stores organize tours through the city. Trudging on your feet can get exhausting and you can easily visit sights that are just a little further away on a bike. Seville is a very bike-friendly city with many cycle paths that run through the center, and trails that surround the city.
  • Fundación Cajasol is both a huge exhibition space and a place where regular events are held. There is always something fun going on here. Cajasol is open every day and is in the city center. The exhibitions are usually free to visit and is also open on Sundays. The type of exhibitions ranges from photography to mixed media and modern art installations.
  • Los Remedios, an area located across the river is used for the "Feria" (Festival). The event takes place here every year in April. There are public and private casitas (large tents) where you can eat, drink and dance the Sevillanas. Don't forget to drink rebujito - the Feria drink consisting of sherry mixed with lemonade.
  • Alamillo Park is in the north of Seville and can be recognized by the iconic bridge designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava that was built over the river. This park is one of the largest city parks in Spain. Many wild animals live here, and countless species of plants and trees grow. Various events and festivals are held here during the spring and summer months. There are lakes and sports facilities in a large green park, and it is perfect for a nice walk, bike ride or a picnic.
  • Spain is famous for flamenco and is a must-see for tourists. You can catch an authentic performance at the Casa del Flamenco, which provides a comprehensive overview of the culture and has performances by well-known artists.
  • Wander through an open-air market on Sunday on Vendors street. The well-known market is behind the Alcampo shopping center at Ronda del Tamarguillo on Avenida de la Paz. You can reach there by bus lines 30, 36 from Prado de San Sebastian. However, it is easily outdone by a large flea market that sells clothes, furniture, books, shoes, CDs, food, tools, and million other things. It is in the northwest of Triana near Avenida Carlos III (off of the left-hand side of most tourist maps).
