In Seville the Capital of Southern Spain’s Andalusia region, you will find restaurants under trees, alleys with cute shops, pretty gardens, and lots of historic sites.  It is a popular and busy city and also the birthplace of the Flamenco dance.  Seville is rich in culture and it is also the perfect place to experience real authentic Spanish Tapas.

When to visit:

Seville has a Mediterranean climate, characterized by hot summers and mild winters.

  • The peak summer months (June to August) can be extremely hot, with temperatures often exceeding 40°C (104°F). If you prefer milder weather, it’s best to avoid the peak summer season.
  • Spring (March to May): This is generally considered one of the best times to visit Seville. The weather is pleasantly warm, with temperatures ranging from 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F). The city is also adorned with vibrant flowers and there are various cultural events, including the famous Semana Santa (Holy Week) processions and the Feria de Abril (April Fair).

  • Autumn (September to November): Autumn in Seville offers comfortable temperatures, ranging from 20°C to 28°C (68°F to 82°F). The city is less crowded compared to spring and there are cultural events like the Bienal de Flamenco, showcasing traditional Spanish dance and music.

  • Winter (December to February): Seville experiences mild winters, with temperatures ranging from 10°C to 18°C (50°F to 64°F). While it may not be as warm as other seasons, it’s still pleasant for outdoor activities. The city is also less crowded during this time, making it a good option for sightseeing without large crowds.

Ultimately, the best time to visit Seville depends on your tolerance for heat and preference for cultural events. Spring and autumn are generally favored by many travelers due to the pleasant weather and the array of festivities taking place.

Focus on Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is a tourist hot spot with its narrow lanes and pedestrian-friendly alleys, and it is worth it to explore.  Everywhere you will find tourists aiming to find the perfect photo spots.  However keep in mind that they do have the fantastic ‘Siestas’ in Spain, which means that some shops might be closed from 13H00. 

In Santa Cruz, you have to stop at the Plaza de la Virgen de Los Reyes with its convent, fountain in the center, beautiful palace, and cathedral.

Here at the Plaza de la Virgen de Los Reyes, you will have the opportunity to explore the city by horse-drawn carriage.  (Very romantic)

You will find it easy to explore Calle Susona and Calle Alemanes which have beautiful tiled paintings and decorations everywhere and ceramic shops.

I suggest you try true Spanish Tapas while in Seville, so you might as well stop at the Bodega Tapas Bar in Sante Cruz.  Here you will find fantastic food and friendly people.  This is definitely a place to put on your itinerary.

In the evening you will find the streets lined with restaurant tables, soft lights, and people enjoying their dinner or drinks.  There are beautiful settings all along some of the streets.  Also, check out Plaza Venerables.

Getting around

Taking the city Tram is a fantastic option for getting around.  You can also make use of the Lime Scooters which you can book online and explore the city on a scooter, but just walking around is still the best way and the most popular.  Bike rentals are also available.
