Historic Center of Seville (Centro Historico de Sevilla) Tours

Historic Center of Seville (Centro Historico de Sevilla)
Stroll cobblestone streets, stop for tapas, and marvel at centuries-old architecture in Seville's Historic Center (Centro Historico de Sevilla). This destination may be best known for its trio of UNESCO World Heritage Sites—the Cathedral, Alcázar, and the Archivo de Indias—making it a prime destination to uncover Spanish history.

The Basics 
Sometimes called simply the Casco Antiguo, or Old Town, the Historic Center of Seville contains many of the city's must-see attractions. The 13th-century Royal Alcázar is typically the most popular attraction, but don't miss Plaza de España—a pavillion replete with ceramic tiling—and the UNESCO-listed Seville Cathedral, in the Santa Cruz quarter. Beyond historic architecture, the canal area is worth exploring. Stroll across the Isabel II Bridge, and get lost in the city's twisty streets. 

Since this area is packed with must-see historical sights, walking tours and bike tours are the best ways to cover more ground and not miss a thing. Tours typically include entry at top sights, and may offer skip-the-line access. Foodies shouldn't miss a tapas tour to taste this famous specialty of Andalusian cuisine.

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • Wear comfortable shoes, since Seville has many narrow, cobblestone streets. 
  • Popular attractions here get busy, so book a skip-the-line experience to avoid crowds.
  • If you love birdwatching, consider a day trip from Seville to Sierra Norte or Grazalema. 

How to Get There
In this labyrinthine, ancient part of the city, it's best to arrive on foot or by bike. If your plan is to explore Spain with Seville's Historic Center as one stop, multi-city tours are a great option; you can avoid itinerary planning and cover top attractions in Seville, Cadiz, and even destinations as far away as Barcelona. Some tours even include a visit to Morocco. 

When to Get There
Summer in Seville can be quite hot, and you can expect some precipitation in fall and winter. To enjoy the pleasant, sunny weather but avoid the peak summer season, visit in March, April, or May. Spring is also the time to enjoy two of the city's festivals, Semana Santa and Feria de Abril. 

Visiting the Royal Alcázar of Seville
If there is one must-see attraction in Seville, it's the Alcázar. This historic palace and fortress with extensive gardens has a history dating to the Middle Ages, and its diverse architecture reflects centuries of overlapping cultures. You can visit the Alcázar plus other sights by booking a Seville monument tour—most visit Seville Cathedral and Giralda Minaret—or try an Alcázar tour with convenient, skip-the-line entry.
Address: Pl. del Duque de la Victoria, 8-6, Sevilla 41002, Spain

Are you a big Game of Thrones fan? Me too! Join me on a private tour to the royal palace of Alcazar better known in the show as the Kingdom of Dorne and the Water Gardens of Sunspear. Alcazar is so beautiful that even the creators of the show said the palace was perfectly designed just for them.
