(4 nights)

From £731

Welcome to the stunning capital of Andalucía

The city of Seville (or Sevilla in Spanish) is the capital of the Spanish region and province of Andalusia and is the fourth largest city in Spain and has the largest historic centre of Europe. The historic city centre of Seville offers many attractions, such as the Real Alcázar de Sevilla, the Seville Cathedral with the Giralda Tower and the Torre del Oro at the river.

This beautiful city is located on the Guadalquivir Rive and thanks to the many historical highlights, Seville is seen by many people as the most beautiful city of Andalusia and Spain. Enjoy the beautiful attractions and sightseeing of Seville, the warm weather, the delicious tapas, long nights, ancient culture, temperament, and flamenco. Seville is a city where you can easily spend a full three days visiting all of the sights which is why we are staying 4 nights to really make the most of our time. 

Barrio de Triana, a district of Seville is seen as the birthplace of flamenco, the typical Spanish dance and music. Seville is famous for its Mudéjar architecture, which is a mix of Islamic and Catholic architectural styles. After the Catholics defeated the Moors, who had ruled over Seville for more than 500 years, they kept many beautiful buildings intact like the Alcazar Palace. Sometimes they gave it their own Catholic twist, like the cathedral with the Giralda.
