SEVILLE

Why Seville?

The Andalusian capital is renowned for being one of the most charming cities of Spain. Overflowing with history, the city is packed with iconic landmarks. From the third largest cathedral in the world to the Maestranza bullfighting ring. Plus, it’s the birthplace of Flamenco! 

Highlights

"To explore the city, just wander. During my first couple of weeks here I just walked everywhere and saw so much. There's no need for a checklist, just wander and you'll see loads."

The Metropol Parasol

Known locally as las setas (the mushrooms) for its toadstool-like appearance, you’re able to take a lift to the top of this wooden construction for just a few euros with a free drink included… a bargain, and much appreciated on a student budget. 

Watch some Flamenco!

Wander to the Puerta de Jerez or stop by the Plaza de España during the day and you might be lucky enough to witness a free performance. Alternatively, if you prefer to sit back and relax with a caña (beer) in hand, head to la Carbonería in calle Céspedes, but don’t be late as this bar’s long benches are quick to fill up.

Transport

  • Walking
  • Public Transport
  • Taxis

Seville is a small city and so it is very walkable.

There's a developed bus service called Sevici. There is a metro but it sort of spans the centre without too many stops within it. There's also a few tram lines to the centre and outskirts. Best buy was the Sevici subscription. It cost around 40 euros for the year, and if you're just here for a semester there's plenty of people selling their subscriptions or looking to buy someone's on the various Erasmus groups.

FreeNow is a great service to use for cabs.

“Hi, I’m Emma! I decided to split my time between France & Spain for my year abroad. I worked at a language school in the heart of Seville as an English language assistant/the odd translation. I ended up loving the south of Spain so much that I’m back here now, this time working in Jaén as a British Council Language Assistant. Don’t hesitate to message me with any questions about living/working in Paris, Seville or Jaén. I’ll try my best to answer them!"
