Time zones

Seville has the same time zone as Central Europe (GMT +1). Capitals such as Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin or Stockholm share the same time zone as Seville. This is, for example, 6 hours ahead of Washington, 8 hours behind Beijing, 9 hours behind Tokyo, 10 hours behind Sydney or 4 hours ahead of Rio de Janeiro.

We speak Spanish in Seville, although with a rather characteristic accent. Anyway, if you are from another country and have little practice with Spanish, don’t worry, we are very accustomed to understanding you and making ourselves understood without any problem.

In Seville, communication always flows.
