Seville is sweet all year long, but the summer months can get pretty hot. Our favourite time to visit is in the winter when ample sunshine makes even cold days bearable. Our advice is to avoid the throngs of tourists and go when the weather is a little chillier so that you will feel like you have some parts of the city to yourself.
When to Go
The weeks leading up to Easter are also a fascinating time when the faithful slowly make their way through cobbled streets, dressed in black, carrying massive floats with huge and very real looking wooden statues of a solemn Jesus and tearful mother Mary with a shining golden crown topping her head, resembling a heavenly halo. Some of these depictions are hundreds of years old. Children carry long candles and women quietly cross themselves in silent prayers. It’s hard not to get caught up in the emotion and devotion of the moment as the city prepares for the Semana Santa week when thousands of worshippers follow these floats as they make their way to the Cathedral.
What to Pack
Bring a light jacket because the sun can be a little deceiving. It can still feel cold! A scarf for evening walks is also a great idea. And keep the heels at home, flat shoes are a must on Seville’s cobblestone streets.
