24 hours in Seville

24 hours in Seville may not be long, but it’s enough time to realise why so many people praise this Spanish city. You’ll find royal palaces here, as well as a dramatic catholic church, beautiful parks, and a contemporary edge in stores, restaurants and bars. Sevilla is easily reached by train from the Spanish capital Madrid, making it an ideal stop on any Interrail journey.

Look at the size of that thing!

Walk the streets and soak up the history

Santa Cruz is a beautiful neighbourhood to explore on foot. Previously the Jewish quarter, this vibrant region of the city is defined by narrow streets, thriving tapas bars and interesting museums. It’s a great place in which to get lost and track down a high-quality meal. After lunch it might be a good idea to have a traditional Spanish siesta.

3 PM // Plaza De Espana

Alameda de Hércules may have the reputation for the best nightlife in Seville, but it’s worth a visit even if you’re not partying the night away.
