Its biggest events include Feria de Abril, where flamenco dresses and “sevillana” songs are the star, as well as its religious processions throughout Easter.

In this unique city, you can enjoy monuments, museums and historic buildings (several declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO).

Seville is one of those cities that manage to make its visitors fall in love with its food and culture.

The best time to visit Seville depends on your interests. Spring offers the most pleasant climate and the possibility of enjoying the great events of the city, Feria de Abril and Easter. Autumn in Seville is also a good time to visit because the temperatures are mild.

Summer in Seville is recommended only if your tolerance to heat is high since thermometers usually exceed 40ºC during the day.

Finding a place to stay in Seville should not be a problem, regardless of the budget you have. Like most cities in southern Spain, accommodation in Seville is quite cheap. A three-star hotel in the City Centre can cost about €50, a hostel does not usually exceed €15 for a bed in a shared room.

The City Centre is possibly the best area to stay in Seville, as it is very pedestrian-friendly and houses most of the city’s attractions (See accommodation in Old Town). On the other hand, staying in La Alameda is a good option if you want to know the Sevillian nightlife (See hotels in La Alameda).
