The Andalusian capital of Seville 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!
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.

Seville is a small city and so it is very walkable.
FreeNow is a great service to use for cabs.
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.
