How to spend 24 hours in Seville

Plaza España; Sevilla; Andaluzja

Is it possible to visit Sevilla just in 24 hours? Of course! You just need to plan your trip before and I promise you will even find time to enjoy the spanish tapas with a glass of wine, beer with lemon called “”cerveza con limon” or a glass of  tinto de verano 🙂 Take a look what I managed to discover! 

The clutter of flamenco shoes, majestic cathedral, the amazing colors of Plaza Espana, the taste of tapas and the tears of Virgin of Hope of Macarena – this is how I will remember Sevilla! 

24 hours for sightseeing, with sleep included it definitely not enough. However if we would always think that way, we wouldn’t travel. I was lucky as the trip was planned and organised by my husband who is Spanish. This is why we managed to visit the Must See, eat some tapas and enjoy the wonderful flamenco concert.  

Sevilla is one of the hottest cities in Spain located in the south in the region Andalusia. It’s also capital of that region. If you tell a Spanish person that you are going to visit Sevilla in July or August he or she will 100% sure laugh at you! Temperatures in this months are above 40 degrees in the shadow. A record temperature of 47 degrees was measured in July 2017.

  1. I love the Spanish architechture especially the bull fighting arena exterior. I love how the itinerary is full but not too packed. You still get time to sit down and take in the sights.

    1. Thanks Chris! Spain is amazing! I’m happy you like my itinerary! If you like the Spanish culture I will be posting this week an article about the most beautiful Spanish part “Feria de Jerez” 🙂 Stay tuned.

  2. Plaza de Espana square is very famous, got to see in many scenes. Great to know about the history behind each bench representing one province of Spain. I would love to visit all these places along with Metropol Parasolis. Its hard to believe its wooden structure. Great architect work.

    1. Indeed, the most surprising structure was the Metropol Parasolis! 🙂 But the city has much more to offer, the only thing is you need much more time for that.

  3. First of all I must say that you have taken wonderful shots of Seville and it is my favorite place in Spain. I loved Royal Alcázars of Seville and its interiors with Spanish style tiles on the walls. Also Plaza de Espana was very grand and magnificent.

  4. I have always been an admirer of the Spanish architecture and Seville seems to be a great city to experience that. The beautiful shots here really highlight the beautiful structures and artistic vibes of the city. The bull fighting arena looks actually quite bright and lovely on the exterior.

  5. Amazing shots!! I guess I would require more than a day to explore Seville as the city is completely splendid. I have always loved the Spanish decors. La Maestranza looks exactly what I would expect to see in some TV or movies.

  6. Wow, amazing photos! I hope to visit there one day!
    You just encouraged me to add Seville to my next trip and possible family blog. Great ideas. Thanks!
