Are you going to spend five days in Seville? Excellent choice! Seville is a city that invites you to visit it calmly, to stroll around it, to discover it little by little...
If you like, you can start by following this plan for the first two days. Then, on the third day, you’ll feel lucky to have time to enjoy other places.
We recommend a visit to the Cartuja, approaching the Torre Pelli, the tallest building in Andalusia. Next to the skyscraper, you have the CaixaForum. Very near here, the emblematic spaces of the 1992 Universal Expo, which today offers the Navigation Pavilion or the Andalusian Centre for Contemporary Art (located in the historic Monastery of Santa Maria de las Cuevas).
To eat, we suggest you cross the river to the Barrio de San Lorenzo and Alameda de Hércules, areas of the city where you’ll find some of the best and most extensive culinary offerings in Spain.
In the afternoon, you can head to the Macarena, see the city walls and the arch of the Macarena, one of the only three accesses that are preserved from the walls of Seville. Once there, you can’t leave without entering the Basilica of La Macarena, which houses one of the most famous and revered icons of Seville’s Holy Week.
Whether you come with family or not, we suggest a visit to the Seville Aquarium, located in the Muelle de las Delicias. It has the deepest tank on the Iberian peninsula, with more than 400 species. You can even spend the night among the sharks!
From there, you can stroll along the banks of the Guadalquivir river until you reach the emblematic Torre del Oro, which houses the Naval Museum of Seville. The Torre del Oro was formerly a defensive tower and was attached to the Reales Alcázares by a section of wall.
Nowadays, the emblematic Torre del Oro houses the Naval Museum of Seville.tweet
Continuing along the Paseo Colón, you will find Seville's bullring, the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza. It is home to the bullfighting museum, one of the most visited in Seville, where you can tour its history, see bullfighting posters, its picture collection, matador costumes, etc.
Later, you will arrive at the famous Triana bridge, next to the Lonja del Barranco Market, where you can enjoy a wide variety of culinary treats and relax with beautiful views of the river.
After lunch, we suggest you visit Triana so that you get to know its personality, exploring the history of the Castillo de San Jorge, see the artisan wonders of the Triana Ceramic Centre and visit Calle Betis, the Triana balcony over the river and the city. And why not? Enjoy an inspiring journey along the Guadalquivir on board a river cruise.
On your last day in Seville, perhaps you will already feel a little bit Sevillian. Just stroll, enjoy and let yourself go. Walk through the centre of Seville, stand on a bright terrace or venture into an old and hidden bar. Examine the small details in the great things in life. Feel the joy that breathes through the city's atmosphere.
