Destination guide

Stay in great Seville holiday homes

The filigreed palace of Alcazar and the soaring Giralda bell tower herald the glorious Moorish styles of Seville from afar. This grand place was once a capital of Spain's North African rulers, complete with elegant mosques – now cathedrals – and formidable Christian fortresses – former Muslim strongholds. Seville holiday lettings promise a stay in the middle of all the city's Mudejar architecture and elaborate building complexes. And they offer a ticket to one of Spain's buzzing modern metropolises, a place where the plazas ring with the clinking of beer glasses, the cobbled lanes sizzle with plates of tasty tapas and the winding Guadalquivir River drifts past bars and galleries and enthralling museums.


Spanish history abounds near Seville holiday lettings

Seville holiday rentals could just be a top pick if you're looking to delve into Andalusia's long and immersive past this year. Legend has it that Seville was founded by Hercules, and it was certainly an important trading post during the times of the ancient Greek seafarers. The Romans later fortified the town, before the Moors conquered southern Spain and raised strong castles and mosques in its midst. After the reconquest in the 13th century, modern Seville began to take shape. The great Gothic cathedral was raised and the iconic Mudejar style perfected, all just in time for centuries of prosperity, as Seville became a principle trading port with the New World.

Things to do

Seville's top attractions and sights

The stopper of Seville's old city is the rising peak of the great Alcazar. The original Muslim fortress was razed by the Christians after the reconquest of southern Spain, and the Moorish castle you see today built on the site. The influence of Africa is clear to see – look for the arched doorways and palm-sprouting gardens, the arabesque alcoves and beautiful Mudejar art. The Renaissance spire of the Giralda tower looms nearby, joined at the hip to the mind-boggling medley of Gothic buttresses that is the Seville Cathedral – they are both must-sees. And then there's the Plaza de Espana. It brings an architectural tour of the metropolis to a satisfying end, showcasing accomplished revivalist buildings and beautiful tiled facades.

How to get around

How to get around Seville

It should be easy to get out and about to explore this enthralling cityscape, no matter where it is you bag that Seville holiday let. That's because bus routes and an efficient tram line combine to offer an excellent public transportation network. Puerta de Jerez and Plaza Ponce de Leon are the major interchanges in the centre and it's likely you'll never be short of connections to either. Tickets for buses can be bought on board, but it might be better to opt for a rechargeable Tarjeta Multiviaje card – it can be used on both buses and trams. Cycling around Seville is a good choice, too. Sevici rent stations are found across the city and there are plenty of dedicated bike paths throughout.

Food & drink 

Foods you must try when staying in Seville

Prepare the taste buds for a real medley of Andalusian treats. Tapas bars and creative Spanish eateries by the bucketload surround Seville holiday lettings. They burst with iconic dishes, like the Iberico pork, a local meat cut that's heralded as the most succulent in the country – at least by the locals. Rolled flamenquines are a carnivore's favourite, mingling cured Spanish hams with crusty breadcrumbs in a deep-fat fryer. Veggies might prefer the spiced espinacas con garbanzos – spinach and chickpeas. Wash the lot down with a smooth Rioja or cold craft-brew beer.
