Hi there - I am going to Seville in the spring with my mother for a few days and am beginning to do some research on things to do in Seville while we are there. I got this info from a friend who lived in Seville ten years ago - has anyone been there more recently who can add to this/ comment?
Here are my top tips for things to do in Seville:
- mosey around the Jewish quarter, it's has pretty little streets that you can get lost in and good eateries
- visit the Real Alcazar (the Alcazar Palace), the highlight of which is its gardens
- Next to the Real Alcazar is the Cathedral which is great to duck into on a Sunday as you might catch part of a service which is always interesting. You can go up its tower for a good view of the city
- down a street directly opposite the cathedral main door is the tapas place which I was talking about. It doesn't seem clear on the map for some reason but am guessing it is on Calle Federico Sanchez Bedoya. You go down this street for about 50 metres and the tapas bar is on a corner always open on both corners wiht large barrels (probably of the local sherry) everywhere in it.
- Calle Betis is meant to be a good street to walk along at night-time as is quite happening, it also has some nice places to eat with great fried seafood on the waterfront (a particularly nice place is on the waterfront just next to the Puente de San Telmo (hopefully it hasn't changed hands))
- If you fancy a day trip out of Seville, go to Ronda (attractions include the bull ring and the ravine) and its surrounding Pueblos Blancos (White Villages) - these are pretty villages high up in the hills where each corner you go round, you bump into an amazing view.
All your help would be much appreciated!
