Top 10 things to do in Seville, Spain

Things to do in Seville Spain

Between the world’s third largest cathedral and what was once the world’s tallest building, Giralda, lies your Oasis Hostel – smack in the cultural and historic heart of Seville. Whether you want to head out to the Alcazar, Casa de Pilatos, Archive of the Indies, or wander through the mass of amazing restaurants, bars, palaces and parks, and top it all of with flamenco and a big night out – at Oasis, you are just minutes walk from everywhere you want to be.


 

Restaurants

Tapas aren’t everything. Well…not to everyone, anyway. Sure it’s more common to go for tapas, but if you want a well orchestrated, full meal, there are a number of restaurants around the city that would love to accommodate you. Markets, as well, can provide you with fresh ingredients if you prefer to cook for yourself.

10 Things To Do

Seville has over 1.5 million citizens, over 4,000 amazing tapas bars, tons of great flamenco clubs, and an outrageous club scene. On top of all this there are a number of just plain cool places to see and experience. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite things to do while in Seville, just to get you going.

 

Tapas

Going for tapas is the most way common to dine in Seville. With over 4,000 tapas bars in the city, it’s no surprise. Tapas are cheap (between 1.50€ and 4€) and it’s common to see people sharing a ‘ración’ (plate) or a ‘media ración’ of one dish. While traditional tapas reign supreme, new international influences and vegetarian fusion have become very popular.

Best Bars

Call it an excuse to beat the heat, but Seville specializes in a number of interesting and super refreshing cocktails that just might leave you breathless, and will definitely leave you a bit buzzed.

 

Flamenco

Flamenco is a huge part of the culture all across southern Spain, and Seville is no exception. While some places can be overrun by tourists (and the prices will reflect that), there are a number of cool authentic locales specializing in hot music, cool drinks, and great food. It’s a great way to get your blood pumping before the night really gets started.

Museums

You’re in Seville, historically and culturally rich. It would be a shame to move on without absorbing some of the fascinating legacy that has made the city such a popular destination for travellers. Soak up some culture at any of the city’s abundant museums and monuments.

 

Clubs and Nightlife

When people say “Seville sizzles,” they’re not just referring to the high summer temperatures. Night Clubs in Seville are some of the best and most eminent, not just in Spain, but all Europe. Start with tapas, then drinks, maybe a botellón session outside with locals, and then stumble upon any one of Seville’s bumping night clubs to party into the morning.

Live Music

Listen up, you might learn something! Seville is proud to be one of the most attractive locations for live music in Andalucía. Passionate locals pour into these venues to catch local up-and-comers jamming and popular bands performing everything from funk, reggae, Spanish music, rock, hip-hop, and jazz.

 

Daytrips

Outside Seville, you can stumble upon a number of impressive sights and some relaxing reprieves from the hustle and bustle of Seville’s urban areas. Here’s a few suggestions for worthwhile excursions from the city to give you a more well-rounded visit.

It’s a great way to get your blood pumping before the night really gets started.


Casa de la Memoria

This place has a reputation for some of the best, most authentic flamenco in all of Seville. It must be noted, however, that alcohol is off the menu at this joint – but think of it this way: At least you’ll actually remember the show.

La Carboneria

As the name implies, this was once a coal store. Now it’s a cool rustic bar with flamenco and jazz fusion shows every night. It’s free to get in, so just bring some friends and enough cash for a few drinks.

 

Anselma

This place gets seriously crowded, even during the week. In a classic location with authentic shows, it’s no wonder why.

Lo Nuestro

A definite local favourite surrounded by bars in a lively area. This is a cool spot for more of an improvised, neighbourhood flamenco show. It’s unpretentious, welcoming, and always fun.



Best daytrips from Sevilla, southern Spain

Daytrips

Outside Seville, you can stumble upon a number of impressive sights and some relaxing reprieves from the hustle and bustle of Seville’s urban areas. Here’s a few suggestions for worthwhile excursions from the city to give you a more well-rounded visit.


The Alcázar Gardens

Take your time when visiting the Alcázar to sit and relax in the gardens. Especially in the summer it is a nice spot to find some shade and have a little rest.

Italica-Roman Ruins

Just a few miles north of Seville, in the village of Santiponce, lies one of the most important and largest Roman ruins in the whole of Spain. The Roman city of Italica demonstrates wonderful examples of Roman architecture, mosaic work and city layouts.

 

Visit Huelva´s historic center

In Seville, you’ve maybe seen the tomb of Christopher Columbus. Why not take it a step further and head to Huelva, where the famous explorer recruited many of his shipmates for his historic voyage to the Americas. Outside the industrial district, Huelva’s historic city centre is well worth a visit. This place has been an historically vital port city, having drawing in the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans, among others.

Buhaira Gardens

Visit the Jardines de la Buhaira and see some amazing fountains in the tree-lined and vastly expansive park.

 

Carmona

Catch a bus to Carmona (about an hour away) and spend a relaxing day in a pueblo.

Start with tapas, then drinks, maybe a “botellón” session outside with locals, and then stumble upon any one of Seville’s bumping night clubs to party into the morning.

Elefunk

Funk from the 60’s and 70’s as well as contemporary funk tunes makes this a lively macca for those who want to get, y’know, funky. Very popular with young locals and international students.

Malandar

Live music used to rattle the walls in this place, but because they exceeded the 92 decibel limit last December, they’ve been relegated to DJ sets. Still fun, and still in a lively area. Worth checking out, for sure.

 

Kafka

Good bar for electronic music. Don’t miss reggae vibes every Wednesday.

Jackson

If you like funk music, this place is for you. A very popular place, on weekends it’s always full. Go once, and you’ll see why.

 

Buddha Bar

For this place you have to dress up, but I’m sure you won’t regret it. Three amazing floors and a delightful terrace will make you have serious fun.

Best Bars and Cheap drinks in Sevilla Spain

Here is our list of best bars to have a cheap drink in Sevilla, Spain

Call it an excuse to beat the heat, but Seville specializes in a number of interesting and super refreshing cocktails that just might leave you breathless, and will definitely leave you a bit buzzed.

La Goleta

Locals call the place “Peregril,” and come in herds to down glasses of their sweet orange wine. It’s a quirky place with a lot of character and comic décor. For some unknown reason, singing is not allowed – maybe that’s for the best. A fun place to relax with the house beverage and the tapas aren’t bad either.

La Carboneria

Order a pitcher of their special cocktail, the “Agua de Sevilla.” This local concoction contains a few kinds of liquor, pineapple juice, cream, and – for a touch of class – champagne. Better have some friends help you out with this one or you’ll be crawling home. Of course, if you get carried away, you can stay late and sober up while you catch a flamenco show.

 

Cerveceria La Grande

Cheap beer and free gambas (shrimp) tapas! What else do we have to say? How about: “Lots of outdoor seating on their sunny patio.” That should do it.

Cerveceria Internacional

More than 100 beers to choose from! So you’ll surely find a brew that you like somewhere in their extensive 15 page menu of international brews.

 

El Garlochi

This freaky Semana Santa bar is something you don’t want to miss. Try the “Sangre de Cristo” cocktail (Blood of Christ) for a religious experience unlike anything you’ve had in church.
