Seville

Spain

Seville is the capital of Spain's southern region of Andalucia. Rich in culture and history, this city has loads to offer, including its world-famous cathedral.

Things to do in Seville

The enormous Seville Cathedral is the city's main attraction. For one thing, it's the biggest cathedral in the world, with numerous rooms and corridors and 80 different chapels within to explore. Secondly, it's home to the tomb of Christopher Columbus. Talk about a good photo op!

Other cultural highlights in Seville include the Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold), a 13th-century military watchtower on the banks of the Guadalquivir river. Climb to the top for views of the city below. You should also make time to visit the beautiful and sprawling Plaza de España in the Parque de Maria Luisa.

The Home of Flamenco

Seville is famous for being the home of flamenco, a traditional Spanish dance. There are plenty of places across the city where you can take in a show on any given evening. Many of them even serve you dinner while you watch. Look up the timetable at Casa de la Memoria, one of the most popular flamenco venues in town, and prepare to have your socks knocked off by the performers.
