The Real Alcazar de Seville has a long and rich history. It was built in the 11th century for King Peter of Castille on the site of a Muslim fortress, and it boasts many different architectural elements that make it astonishing. In fact, after centuries worth of building and retouching, the castle features a melting pot of styles, from Gothic to Baroque to Romantic.

Step inside the palace to marvel at rooms and gardens decorated with geometric patterns, local azulejos, fountains, and lush vegetation. One of the best ways to discover the Real Alcazar de Seville is by getting lost in the maze of its gardens and being transported back in time

A very special place to visit in Seville is the Plaza de Toros. With the long, full name of Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla, this is Spain’s largest and most important arena for bullfighting.

With a capacity of 12,000 seats, this bullring was constructed starting in 1749, and over the next two centuries, it was enriched with different architectural features. The circular building boasts an impressive Baroque façade and the main entrance, called the Puerta del Príncipe, has a beautiful 16th-century iron gate.

The Plaza de Toros is still used for bullfighting, which is a controversial topic although an integral part of Andalusia’s cultural heritage. You can enjoy a visit to the building without attending a corrida. You will need to take a guided tour to visit the Plaza de Toros. The tour includes visiting a small museum that traces bullfighting’s history from the 18th century to the present day.

There are many interesting attractions in Seville Spain, and one of them is the Metropol Parasol. Of recent construction, as it was built in 2011 by German architect Jurgen Mayer, it is one of the newest attractions in the city.  

The Metropol Parasol is a vast structure, 150 meters long and 25 meters high, made entirely of wood. The building’s design resembles a series of mushrooms, which earns it the nickname “Las Setas” (The Mushrooms). 

Boasting the claim of being the largest wooden structure in the world, this giant art piece is a series of walkways that take you over La Encarnacion Square and give you one of the city’s best views. The Metropol Parasol also has an upper terrace called “El Mirador”, which visitors can access to admire a 360-degree view of Seville. The terrace also features a tapas bar, a wonderful sunset drink spot.

The basement of the building has instead a small museum showcasing some ruins and artifacts from the Roman and Moorish periods.

Since the Metropol Parasol sits right in the heart of Seville’s old quarter, locals strongly criticized its construction. In fact, its futuristic-looking design was seen as in lousy juxtaposition with the ancient sites nearby. However, it quickly became a favorite tourist attraction. Take advantage of this skip-the-line entrance and guided tour of the Metropol Parasol with an optional city tour to not miss this Seville unique site.

#6 Watch a Flamenco Show

Seville is the birthplace of the flamenco dance. This art form is based on the folkloric music traditions of southern Spain, and it developed within the gitano subculture of Andalusia. Since 2010, UNESCO has declared flamenco as one of the “Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity,” so watching a flamenco show while in Seville is a must.

A traditional flamenco performance comprises three elements: the song, the guitar, and the dance. Usually, the flamenco dancer starts standing without showing emotions and then begins a steady beat of clapping and stamping with her foot. Eventually, as the music builds the rhythms, the dancer will break into a masterful dance of intricate steps.

There are many places in Seville where you can catch a flamenco show. You can choose from shows marketed for tourists, which include drinks and dinner, or smaller and more intimate experiences in venues frequented by the locals. Moreover, strolling around the city in the evening, there is a high chance that you will find a lively flamenco street performance that you can enjoy for free.

If this is your first time watching a flamenco show, we suggest this combo tour that offers a walking tour of Seville with tapas stop before enjoying a live flamenco dance. It is one of the Seville attractions you cannot miss.

Many visitors arriving in Seville skip this next thing to do in the city as it still is under the tourist radar. The Casa de Pilatos is a 16th-century civil palace that still serves as the permanent residence of the Duke of Medinaceli. 

The palace was built after the union between the Enriquez and Ribera families, who erected this mansion to demonstrate their power and wealth. What’s unique about this Seville best-kept secret is its architecture that mixes elements from Italian Renaissance, Gothic, and Mudejar styles. 

Its intriguing name, which translates as Pilate’s House, was given to the place after Fadrique Enríquez de Rivera visited the supposed mansion of Pontius Pilate in Jerusalem. 

A national monument since 1931, the palace’s beauty had it used as the set for popular Hollywood blockbusters like “Lawrence of Arabia”.

Walk through the palace to step back in time and admire gorgeous marble gates, ornate arches, and walls with colorful tiles. But the real showstopper attraction of the Casa de Pilatos is the traditional Andalusian courtyard that you will find at its center, ornated with grand columns, statues, and a beautiful fountain.

This exciting archeological site lies in the present-day town of Santiponce. Italica was Spain’s first Roman settlement, founded in 206 B.C. by the Roman general Scipio. Italica’s centrality in Roman history is invaluable, as it was the birthplace of the two Roman emperors, Trajan and Hadrian. Under Hadrian’s reign, the city of Italica knew its heyday, and it was enriched with many beautiful buildings. 

Stroll around the site’s cobblestoned streets to enter villas and houses featuring off-the-period mosaics. Particularly stunning are the mosaics in the House of the Exedra, House of the Birds, and House of the Planetarium. Other buildings to see are the amphitheater, which was the third-largest arena in the empire at the time, and the Traianeum, a temple built by Hadrian in honor of his father, Trajan.

Game of Thrones die-hard fans will likely recognize Italica since it was used to shoot scenes for “Dragon-Pit” and “King’s Landing” in seasons 7 and 8.
