A day in Seville

Today we tell you in this post how to spend a perfect day in Seville. We will take you to essential places where you can experience the city as a Sevillian more step by step.

We suggest you start the day early in the morning to enjoy the city and enjoy it as much as possible. We will start with a good breakfast, in Seville, you will find many bakeries and cafes to have a coffee, an orange juice and several options of toast with Iberian ham, virgin olive oil and tomato, the most typical.

The first place you must visit is the Real Alcázar de Sevilla.

The Alcazar is a must in our city and the most famous monument in Seville, where Game of Thrones was also filmed. This palace was used as the palace and the water gardens of Dorne, the home of the Martell family. The story of the series and reality is very similar and if you are a Game of Thrones fan you will love our GoT sets tour in the palace.

The palace and gardens are Mudejar style, it means that have Islamic and European influences. You can also visit the upper floor, called Cuarto Real Alto, current dependencies in Seville of the Spanish Royal House which has another ticket different of the general.

After visiting the Alcazar, we will walk towards the Guadalquivir river. During our journey, we will find the Abdel Aziz tower and the Royal Mint of Seville. And to crown the area, the beautiful Torre del Oro. This Almohade period tower was a watchtower to control the river and the city. Now inside there is a naval museum about its history and a wonderful view of the river from the top of the tower.

We will back to the center walking through the Arenal neigborhood and crosing the "Postigo del Aceite" entrance, to visit the Cathedral. This cathedral is declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the third-largest Cathedral in the world and the first in Gothic style. The cathedral's roots are not Christian, but Muslim, as it was originally a mosque, which centuries later was converted into a Christian temple, but of which there are still vestiges, such as the Patio de Los Naranjos or one of the symbols of Seville: The Giralda.

Probably after you visited the main monuments of the city, it is time for lunch. In the area, you will find many restaurants and bars to try some typical dishes and tapas from Seville. We recommend El Peregil, Las Columnas, La Azotea, or La Casa de la Moneda.

To follow palaces tours and if you liked the first we recommend the one that is, in our opinion, the second most imposing in the city: La Casa Pilatos. Today, in addition to the Medinaceli family home, it is also a museum full of art and a fascinating mix of Renaissance, Mudejar, and Baroque styles.

(EXTRA TIP: If you like palaces or want a second option, we suggest El Palacio de las Dueñas, a palace built in the 15th century and the home of the Duchess of Alba until very recently. Inside you will find an impressive collection of art. Be careful because it is very easy to lose track of time here!)

After the palaces, we can choose go to a Flamenco Show. It is something that you have to know because it forms our history, our identity, our being ... and it's the Andalucian traditional dance. If you would like to feel the Flamenco we offer a visit where tell you all you need to know to enjoy it: how its born, whats means, how it developes, and also taste it too having a local wine tasting before the show.

When the show ends its sure you're hungry, so it's time for dinner! In the Santa Cruz neighborhood, the old Jewish quarter of the city, you can find as many bars and restaurants as you want to dine like a king. The neighborhood is well worth a walk while you find the best bar. We can recommend El Pasaje, Casa Moreno, Casa Morales ... or also you can add some tapas to your tour and get an authentic sevillian dinner in Triana.

If you are not tired yet, you can go to the Alameda de Hércules to have your last drink and enjoy the Sevillian night, here, in addition to cocktail bars and terraces there are some clubs where you can spend the night dancing good music and enjoy the nightlife from the city.

A glorious trip in the most beautiful city in the world without wasting a minute!
