50 Things to Do in Seville

What to Do in Seville


Visiting Seville? There's no chance you'll get bored - I've found 50 things to do in the city. If I had included every fine tapas bar or historic church, this list could have easily reached 100.

I've divided this list into each major barrio or district of Seville. Many of the activities on this page are free with the Seville Card or Seville Cultura Card. The Cultura card is cheaper, but has less benefits. Click on the links to learn about each card.
