Located in the province of Seville in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Seville is in south west Spain. Sitting on the River Guadalquivir, it is the fourth largest city in Spain.

With a history dating back to the Romans, a Golden Age during the Spanish Empire, three World Heritage sites, and a thriving modern culture, Seville is a terrific destination for a city break.

Visitors can enjoy charming streets and grandiose squares, historical monuments, splendid architecture, colourful markets, tranquil parks, and amazing tapas bars in the Andalusian capital.

This wealth of attractions is complemented by a huge selection of budget friendly accommodation and hotels in Seville.


Neighbourhoods of Seville

Seville consists of 11 districts and 118 neighbourhoods. The coolest ones to visit include:

  • Santa Cruz: One of the most iconic barrios of Andalusia, this charming old Jewish neighbourhood is centred on Seville’s mighty St. Mary of the See Cathedral nestled among winding cobbled streets. As well as being home to the balcony that inspired the iconic scene in Romeo and Juliet (in (Plaza Alfaro), another must-visit is Calle Agua (Water Street).
  • Triana: Today, this former gypsy neighbourhood is known for its whitewashed houses adorned with handmade ceramics, its association with flamenco artists and bullfighters, and the lively market.
  • Arenal: Arenal is a smart residential district with plenty of tapas bars and restaurants around the bullring which still holds shows. Controversial yet spectacular.
  • Feria: One of Seville’s coolest neighbourhoods, Feria translates as party, so it’s no wonder it is nightlife central. The barrio’s central artery, Calle Feria hosts plenty of lively bars as well as vintage clothing boutiques, and a flea market every Thursday.
  • Macarena: This neighbourhood contains some of the oldest parts of the city and the largest remnants of the original city wall built by the Moors. It also houses the two oldest entrances to Seville, the Puerta de Cordoba on the east side and the Puerta de la Macarena on the west side, and the city’s oldest market, the Mercado de la Feria.
