2 days in Seville

This summer, I made a short road trip in Andalusia, the first stop of which was the wonderful city of Seville. I loved discovering the capital of Andalusia, where beauty is so omnipresent that you don’t know where to look. When I left for Spain, I did not expect such a change of scenery and it was a real good surprise to discover beautiful Andalusia. I take you with me in this article by listing you the things to do in Seville in two days. I hope this will make you want to check it out soon!

Where to stay in Seville?

For my part, I stayed in a youth hostel, at the For You Hostel Seville. I highly recommend this hostel, the dorms are very clean and modern and each dorm has its own bathroom. The hostel is very well placed for exploring the city, which allows you to do everything on foot.

What to do in Seville?

Two days to visit Seville, it is possible, but it is not easy! A three-day stay seems ideal to discover the city more calmly. For my part, I was busy with more than 20 km on the clock every day, my feet cried but I did not want to miss any of the wonders of Seville. Here is the list of things to do in Seville.

The Plaza de Espana

Plaza de Espana is by far the prettiest square I have visited. It is huge and you will never tire of walking along the arcades, climbing on small bridges, or even admiring the azuleros representing each Andalusian city. In the early morning, when few tourists are already present, there is something extremely peaceful about the atmosphere. This is a must see in Seville!

Parque Maria Luisa

From Plaza de Espana you can walk to Parque Maria Luisa, which is right next door. It is a very peaceful and pleasant place, where it is good to take a break during the summer heat!

Giralda cathedral

Then go to the Giralda cathedral, emblem of Seville. It was originally a mosque, later converted into a cathedral, which gives it a spectacular architecture. Take the time to walk around this cathedral and observe it from all angles.

The Real Alcazar and its gardens

If there is one must visit in Seville, it is the Alcazar and its sumptuous gardens. Buy your skip-the-line ticket before your visit, there are a lot of people on the site and it will save you time. Once inside, you will inevitably be seduced by the peaceful atmosphere that reigns in the place, the gardens will never cease to dazzle you with their beauty. Allow an hour and a half to two hours for this visit.

Paseo de Cristobal Colon and the Torre Del Oro

Take the time to walk along the canal, the ride is very pleasant. Then you will arrive at the Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold), a former military observation tower. For 3 €, you can go up there and discover a maritime museum inside, as well as enjoy the view of Seville from its top.

Eat some tapas at Mercado Lonja del Barranco

Mercado Lonja del Barranco is the type of concept I could never get enough of, although we are seeing more and more of it! It is a covered market combined with a food court. You can taste the specialties of the various stands for very reasonable prices, the setting is super nice, you can sit on the terrace under the misters to taste your dishes.

Visit the Triana district

The district of Triana is the old gypsy quarter of Seville, located to the west of the city. You can get there by the Isabel II Bridge. You will certainly be seduced by the lively and lively atmosphere of this district. Let yourself go strolling through the alleys of this pretty district and take the time to admire the many multicolored facades. Do not miss the one on Calle del Betis, which you will see from the canal!

The Metropol Parasol

Finally, pass by the Metropol Parasol (La Seta), a wooden architectural work that can be found in Encarnación Square. I did not climb there, but it is quite possible, in order to gain a little height to admire the city.

Stroll through Santa Cruz and the Casco Antiguo

In my opinion, the most important thing when visiting a city is not to go to a specific point but to indulge in the streets. In Seville, you will not be disappointed! Each corner offers you its share of architectural beauties, you will come across squares each more attractive than the next, you will be surprised by the magnificent domes that adorn most of the buildings and your eyes will be drawn to the pretty multicolored facades throughout. of your ride. Take the time to explore Seville, the Andalusian capital is worth it!

That’s already all for this first stage in Seville, it was a real crush and I would have spent a few more days in this beautiful city! To follow the rest of my road-trip in Andalusia, see you very soon on my story of Cordoba and Granada.
