Seville is a city full of history, culture and nightlife. If you are planning a weekend in this beautiful city, here are five plans to do in Seville in a weekend that you should consider:
Visit the Cathedral and the Real Alcázar
Did you know that the Cathedral of Seville is the largest Gothic cathedral in the world and the third largest temple after St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican in Rome, and St. Paul's in London? In addition to its amazing architecture, it is home to the tomb of the famous discoverer Christopher Columbus. Don't miss the opportunity to climb the Giralda, an old 12th century tower that offers impressive views of the city.
The Real Alcázar is a royal palace dating from the 9th century and is one of the most impressive buildings in the city. The palace is famous for its Mudejar architecture and its beautiful gardens. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the Patio de las Doncellas, one of the most impressive patios in the palace.
Stroll through the Santa Cruz neighborhood
This neighborhood is known for its narrow cobbled streets, its flower-filled balconies and its traditional Sevillian houses. It is the perfect place to get lost and discover the most hidden charms of the city. During your walk, do not forget to visit the Plaza de Santa Cruz, one of the most emblematic squares in the city, the Callejón del Agua or the Plaza de Santa Marta.
Attend a flamenco show
Flamenco is a deeply rooted tradition in Andalusia and Seville is one of the best places to enjoy this art. La niña de los Peines, Pepe Pinto and Manolo Caracol, among others, were born here. If one of the plans to do in Seville over a weekend is to enjoy flamenco live, there are several venues where you can see shows, such as the Tablao Flamenco Álvarez Quintero, the Patio Sevillano or the Tablao El Arenal. Make sure you book in advance to ensure you get a good location.
Take a tapa of croquettes
Croquettes are one of the most popular Sevillian tapas, so among the plans to do in Seville in a weekend, a tapa (or portion) of croquettes cannot be missing from your table. Although there are many bars where they are prepared with love and care, Casa Ricardo stands out. It is a bar with aesthetics and atmosphere around the Holy Week in Seville and that serves ham croquettes whose liquid bechamel sauce you will not be able to resist!
Enjoy the night life
Isla de la Cartuja is a perfect place to enjoy a night in Seville. The place has several bars and clubs that offer a wide variety of music and atmospheres. Be sure to visit the Alameda de Hércules neighborhood, one of the most popular places near Isla de la Cartuja to party. Do you prefer something more central? Paseo Colón has different bars where you can have a drink with views of the river and the Triana Bridge.
In short, Seville is a city full of things to do and see. Do you already know where to stay on your next visit? At Hotel Cervantes you will find the ideal place to rest and disconnect in the center of Seville.
