Seville Travel Guide

Seville was a great city in Muslim times and again in the 16th and 17th centuries, Seville has seen bad times too, so it knows how to enjoy the good ones when they come.

For more than a century, every April Seville has thrown one of Spain's biggest parties, the Feria de Abril. A couple of weeks before the feria, the city's Semana Santa (Holy Week) processions are among the most magnificent in Spain.

The poet-king Al-Mutamid was one of the first people to fall in love with Seville, and the city's ability to dazzle has not abated since. It takes a stony heart not to be captivated by its exuberant atmosphere - stylish, confident, ancient, proud, yet also convivial, intimate and fun-loving.

The city crowded centre unfolds subtly as you wind your way through narrow streets and small squares. Itsbullfighting, flamenco and nightlife are incomparable. But above all, Seville is an atmosphere. Being out among its happy, celebratory crowds on a warm night is an unforgettable experience.
