Spring in Seville is one of the best times of the year to visit and our guide covers the top seven reasons and things to visit in Seville Spain.

Reason 1. Spring has sprung

Spring in Seville

The Seville’s weather in March is perfect for exploring the city on foot, instead the baking hot temperatures of July to September when the thermometer can reach a whopping 40 degrees.

Reason 2. Teeming with history

Seville is teeming with history, from the Moors to the Catholic Kings, to the Plaza de España built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. The Alcazar, Plaza Alfaro and the Archivo de Indias are perfect for romantics and history buffs alike.

Reason 3. Easter Holidays

Holy Week is celebrated for both religious and family reasons in Seville. From Palm Sunday to Good Friday processions take place to the tune of the saetas, a traditional Flamenco style song. This tradition can be seen by anyone who chooses to stay at one of Seville’s hotels, but book early because it is one of the most popular times of the year in the city.

Reason 4. La Giralda Tower

Giralda Tower

Part mosque and part Catholic cathedral, the Giralda was the minaret of the original mosque upon which construction started in 1184. It’s a climb up to the top, but the view is worth it. Come here in March, April or May and stay at the Catalonia Hotel for the best month to visit Seville.

Reason 5. A River runs through it

The Guadalquivir River is the fifth longest river in the Iberian Peninsula. There are four bridges in Seville which you can use to cross and take in the view of the water below, one of the most famous being the Alamillo Bridge which was built for the 1992 Expo and can be seen from the Giralda tower.

Reason 6. Tapas, tapas, tapas


Tapas are simple really – they are all about sharing. Order as many of these small dishes as you like and enjoy with a cold beer and good company.

Reason 7. Neighbourhood Santa Cruz

This neighborhood is the main tourist area and here you will find the Giralda, the Cathedral and of course the Alcazar of Seville, which borders the Santa Cruz neighbourhood.

If you need to know how many days to visit Seville we recommend at least three to really enjoy everything this city has to offer. The Hotel Catalonia Santa Justa is a great place to stay with a fantastic central location near to the Santa Justa train station. It has its own restaurant and bar for when you simply want to relax without heading out and is a top traveller choice for those wanting to know where to stay in Seville. And if you prefer to spend your time close to the iconic Giralda, your hotel is Catalonia Giralda.
