Seville

Seville can be a bit hot in summertime, but in spring the weather is soft and the beauty is all around with the flowers blooming in this marvellous city. The Giralda, the Cathedral of Seville, the Guadalquivir River and the Plaza de España are some of the must places to visit while visiting Seville, and their charm enhances in this season.

In addition, Seville has one of the most famous Holy Weeks. It is a spectacular festivity highly recommended for both, locals and tourists.  However, probably the most popular event in spring in Seville is the Feria de Abril: a huge social event all over the city when the Andalusian spirit reaches its highest splendour. Flamenco, music, colours, tradition and rebujito invade the city all day long.
