Cheap flights to Seville
As Spanish as sangria and jamón serrano, Seville is where you go if you want an authentic Spanish experience. The capital of Spain’s sunny region of Andalucía is not only home to the fictional characters of Don Juan and Carmen, but also flamenco, tapas and some of Spain’s most colourful festivals.
If you’re after a fiesta then look no further than Seville – if there’s one thing the locals here know, it’s how to throw a party. But this city is more than just dancing, drinking and eating.
As European cities go, Seville is something of a stunner boasting the world’s largest Gothic cathedral, Moorish-style palaces, and neighbourhoods like Santa Cruz that are packed with cobblestone streets, white-washed houses and hidden squares galore. And to top it all the weather’s not bad either – think hot summers, winters with temperatures that hover around 18 degrees and more than 300 days of sunshine a year.
A classic Neo-Mudejár hotel dating from the 1920s, the Alfonso XIII is a marvellous place to stay, but if this is stretching the budget too far, consider stopping by for a fino (sherry) in the bar overlooking the gorgeous interior courtyard (2 San Fernando, hotel-alfonsoxiii-seville.com).
Even if you can't afford the price tag for a stay, visit Hotel Alfonso Xlll for a glass of sherry in the sumptuous neo-Mudejar courtyard and bar (2 Calle San Fernando, hotel-alfonsoxiii-seville.com).
Just 6km north-west of the city lie the extraordinary archeological remains of the Roman town Itálica, complete with a magnificent amphitheatre and beautiful mosaics from the patios of the affluent town houses that once lined the wide avenues here. andalucia.com
