On holiday in Seville

Seville has enough historic streets, gardens and parks to spend a whole city break idly wandering. For a romantic holiday, have late nights and watch passionate flamenco, for a historical tour, seek medieval Moorish architecture.

Enjoy the Spanish weather exploring outdoor spaces like The Plaza de España, in Maria Luisa Park or the divisive design of the Metropol Parasol, which you can climb for a view of the city. The wider Andulasian region is ripe for exploration, too, with many fascinating areas. Its setting makes Seville an ideal starting point for a multi-centre holiday. Book flights to Seville and see where they take you.

Seville – Algarve
Algarve

Portugal isn’t as far away as you might think from Seville Airport, in fact you can drive there in less than two hours, and you’ll also gain an hour by crossing a time zone (Portugal is on GMT). The wonderful Algarve is famous for its beauty and charismatic coastal towns like Faro, Lagos and Portimão. Inland, the villages still live out a rapidly vanishing way of rural life and the local cuisine is excellent. British Airways flights depart daily from Faro to London Heathrow (LHR), London Gatwick (LGW), London City Airport (LCY) and London Stansted (STN).

Seville’s historical sights

Take in Seville at a leisurely pace. In the historic Santa Cruz district, you can’t miss the cathedral – the largest in the world and adorned with gold. Climb the bell tower, or giralda, a beautiful remnant from the original mosque. The star architectural attraction for many is the Alcazar. A Moorish-style palace, magnificent doesn’t quite cover the splendour and detail of its decoration.

Sample the famous tapas

Tapas is perfectly proportioned small plates. Sample it ‘til late at night – it’s not unusual in Spain to start eating at 10pm. Eat addictively crisp, deep fried morsels of fish and simple, delicious frittata and pastry treats with custard fillings. A tapas bar crawl won’t force you to travel far, they line the street on Calle Mateos Gago. Follow the Sevillanos – who eat late and visit the liveliest locales.

Feast your eyes on Flamenco

Feast your eyes on Flamenco

Flamenco dancing is really misunderstood until you see it. Accompanied by guitar, voice and percussion, the dance has a reptilian abruptness and is utterly hypnotic. Seeing the real, sensual thing puts hours of television parodies and bolts of fancy dress ruffles to shame. Watch at the Museo de Baile Flamenco – from 7pm most nights there is an authentic hour long performance.

Celebrate festivities

Seville’s reputation as a festival city comes from its solemn observation of Easter and its intense celebration of spring. The Feria de Abril sends the locals into marquees to dance and the tourists wondering how to get in. The solemn Easter weekend processions cloak the locals in traditional penitential garb. The streets, too, take on a gravitas as crowds gather – a resonant time to make your own pilgrimage.

Take the kids

Kids will appreciate Seville’s history when you tell them of galleons bringing hauls of gold up the Guadalquivir from the Americas. Visit the water park Isla Magica if a cool-down is needed. Buy sweets from the nuns in the convents, through a charming hole in-the-wall system.
