What to see in 1 day in Seville: The best itinerary

You could spend forever wandering the picturesque alleys of Seville and still find something beautiful on every corner. And if you have enough time, it’s the perfect way to explore it. If you only have 24 hours in the most emblematic city in southern Spain, we propose an itinerary that will allow you to make the most of every moment and go directly to each place to know what to see in 1 day in Seville.

What to see in 1 day in Seville

First. After arriving at our accommodation in the center of Seville, (or dropping off your luggage if the room is not yet available), go to the nearest bar to have your second breakfast (or your first, if you haven’t eaten before). That’s right, the tradition of having a second breakfast is very deep-rooted in the south of Spain, and most Sevillians eat it in a bar (a word used here to describe a type of small, informal restaurant).

Order the typical Sevillian breakfast: toast with olive oil, fresh tomato and serrano ham and accompany it with a cup of coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice, and all for less than five euros.

Second. Head to the central Church of the Divine Savior to begin your sightseeing adventure. Visiting this small but beautiful church has an advantage: here you can get a joint ticket to visit it together with the Cathedral of Seville for the same price as a normal ticket to the cathedral. Even if not religious, both buildings are architecturally impressive and provide a fascinating insight into the history and culture of Seville.

Third. Once you’ve finished visiting the church, walk five minutes down the street to the grand cathedral, the largest of its kind in the world. Your Church of the Savior combo ticket will be able to skip the line here. If you are not afraid of heights and are physically capable of doing so, gradually climb the 34 ramps that lead to the Giralda tower to enjoy impressive panoramic views of all of Seville.

Four. Lunch time has arrived and here we are going to propose an option with which to enjoy the best gastronomy in the area, in the central Mateos Gago street, specifically at number 15 we find the Doña Rufina restaurant, with a 4 .7 out of 5 on Google reviews.

Fifth. We advise you to spend the rest of the afternoon visiting and exploring the majestic and grandiose palace and gardens of the Real Alcázar. If you have the opportunity to buy the ticket online you will appreciate it by being able to skip the queues that sometimes form to enter, yes, it is €1 more expensive but it is worth it. Since it appeared in Game of Thrones, it has become a pilgrimage for thousands of fans of the famous series.

Sixth. In the Plaza de la Encarnación, we will visit the Las Setas monument to contemplate the sunset from above. It is the largest wooden structure in the world, and was the subject of controversy among local people at the time of its construction. Once you’ve purchased your €3 ticket, you can ride the elevator to the top of the monument and take in views of the city as the day moves into the sunset. Don’t forget to explore every angle of the city by riding the winding ramps that wind along the top of the structure, and also stop for a drink at the small rooftop bar.

Seventh. Come to a flamenco tablao where music and dance are the protagonists. Look for venues with natural acoustics (no microphones or amplifiers), where food or drinks are not served and where artists rotate to ensure spontaneity and improvisation.
It’s the best way to make sure you get your money’s worth and see a truly impressive show.
