Seville city break for the sophisticated traveller
Take advantage of our handpicked luxury travel offers by heading to one of Spain’s most exciting cities. Seville may be famous for flamenco dancing, oranges and bull fighting, but there is much more to the city than that. Outside of the traditional tourist trail, the city offers much more in the way of the ‘real Spain’, with some of the oldest and most beautiful architecture in the world, as well as a thrilling Easter festival which is famous the world over. Seville is one of the most fun-loving and cultural of the Spanish cities, and offers a great deal of luxury as well, for the upmarket traveller.
What to do in Seville
There is plenty to do during a city break in Seville, from the Cathedral, which is one of the world’s largest Gothic cathedrals, to the city’s Jewish quarter, Barrio Santa Cruz, which surrounds the cathedral and may be recognised by film buffs as the location for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Seville is also home to Reales Alcazar de Sevilla, Europe’s oldest palace, which was originally a Moorish Fort.
Explore the architecture of Seville
Much of Seville’s history dates back thousands of years, as it was first developed into a city by the Romans, when Julius Caesar first came to Spain in 45BC. However, the city also has plenty of contemporary architecture and points of interest, for those looking for modern luxury holidays in the sun. The Metropol Parasol opened in 2011 and has a sweeping parasol-like design and a number of attractions within it.
Choosing luxury in the city
Luxury is easy to come by even during a city break in Seville, from 17th Century palaces which have been developed into luxury hotels to cutting edge boutiques (like the NH Collection Sevilla or the H10 Corregidor Boutique Hotel) and world class art and fashion, the city has plenty to offer to more sophisticated travellers. There are elegant shopping and dining destinations throughout the city, from sophisticated markets to top end high fashion stores, as well as traditional Spanish restaurants with some of the finest chefs in the country.
