Great weather, fascinating history and enchanting scenery are just some of the countless reasons to book flights to Seville. After an afternoon siesta, you’ll also want to sample the thriving nightlife of open-air bars and flamenco in places like Isla Cartuja, Triana and Plaza Alfalfa.
The city’s old town and Jewish quarter are absolutely charming, with beautiful parks to walk through and coach and horses for those who just want to sit and marvel at it all. Seville Cathedral is the third-largest cathedral in the world and the burial place of Christopher Columbus, and its gothic buttresses are a magnificent sight to behold. The Real Alcázar nearby was originally a Moorish fort, but is now a royal palace with stunning baths, courtyards, fountains and gardens. The Torre Del Oro near the San Telmo Bridge and the Giralda minaret are other examples of Moorish architecture that you’ll want to visit.
The city is hot and welcoming all year but it’s worth taking cheap flights to Seville in April for the Feria de Abril de Sevilla, a ten-day celebration which other Spanish cities do too but originally started here. Women in attendance will dress up in flamenco dresses while men walk around in traditional hats and even matador outfits. Thousands of little tented houses called “casetas” line the festival area of the city with all sorts of attractions going on inside them and lots of food, drink and dancing, A large fairground is also set up for the event.
