4 Fantastic Attractions to See When You Visit Seville

Spain, Sevilla Guide (B): 4 Fantastic Attractions to See When You Visit Seville

My family recently traveled to Sanlúcar de Barrameda for a visit and we decided to take a day trip to Seville. We had a great time, but I wouldn’t recommend going to Seville during the months of July and August if possible – it’s known for being unbearably hot in summer (all the locals go to Sanlúcar and other nearby beach towns to escape the heat!). Luckily while we were there it was only about 33 °C degrees (92°F) – usually the temperature is around 40 °C (104°F) in August. Once you’re in the center (near Barrio Santa Cruz), all of the main attractions are within walking distance – I would recommend visiting the Plaza de España in the morning and save the Cathedral and Alcázar for the hottest parts of the day. The best time to visit the Metropol Parasol (or “seta” as the locals call it – meaning “mushroom”) is in the evening at sunset.

If you still have your student card from university bring it! Most of the attractions offer a student discount– I’ve been out of school for about 5 years now and was able to use my old student ID from college, if you’re under 26 years old you can qualify for other discounts too. ......
