Seville: my favourite Spanish city

14.1.19


After Madrid, I knew I'd want to chill for a bit before heading back to city life, so I headed to the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia. 

I've been to quite a few cities in Spain and I think Seville has pipped Barcelona as my favourite in the country. I was only there for two full days and though it annoyingly rained all on one of those days, the weather was pretty good for the rest of my time there (17 degrees in November - always great.)


 View from the Metropol Parasol - a must do!

 Lemon trees in the Real Alcazar - saw plenty of orange trees dotted along the streets 🍋🍊

Food is life - Paella is in my top 10 favourite foods #LOVEIT 🥘


Living in the concrete jungle that is London, architecture is always something I like to pay attention to on my travels; the patterns and the intricate designs make a nice change from the grey skyscrapers and Brutalist council blocks.

When your outfit almost matches the tiles, a photo must be taken


 The infamous bubble man always drew a crowd (and not just children!)



Quick Tips:


 - If you're in Seville on a Tuesday or Thursday, head to the Dream Hostel in the evening for some free flamenco 💃
- Seville is a small city, so everywhere is pretty walkable and public transport isn't needed much
- Head to Bar el Comercio for THE best churros ever. It's quite famous for being the best in the city, so it's quite busy but definitely worth the wait


Despite the lack of people who looked like me, it's a shame I was only in Seville for two full days and I can't wait to go back!

If you're still planning your 2019 travels, Seville would be a great addition.
