Discoveries

Discover Local Highlights
  1. Catedral de Santa María de la Sede
    1. Catedral de Santa María de la Sede

    Built over the ruins of a grand mosque, Seville’s cathedral is one of the largest and oldest Gothic temples in the world. Parts of the mosque are still visible to the knowledgeable eye, including the Patio de los Naranjos, the Puerta del Perdón, and the minaret, now known as the La Giralda bell tower. In addition to notable works of art by Spanish artists like Zurbarán, Murillo, and Goya, the cathedral is home to the remains of Christopher Columbus.

  2. Córdoba
    2. Córdoba

    The one-time Moorish capital of Córdoba is a maze of winding medieval streets behind whose high walls hide orange tree-filled courtyards and traditional Andalusían villas. In the heart of the city lies its famous 9th-century Mezquita, a church-turned-mosque-turned-church that happens to be one of the most important works of Moorish architecture in the world. As befits the city’s multicultural history, the medieval Jewish quarter is one of its most picturesque neighborhoods.

  3. La Encarnación
    3. La Encarnación

    One of Seville’s most rapidly revitalizing neighborhoods, the historic La Encarnación district owes much of its current popularity to German architect Jürgen Mayer-Hermann’s avant-garde Metropol Parasol structure in its central plaza. In addition to the Parasol’s bars, restaurants, and archaeological museum, the area itself is lined with art galleries, hip boutiques, and trendy eateries.

  4. Mercado de Feria
    4. Mercado de Feria

    Dating back to the early 18th century, the Mercado de Feria is one of Seville’s oldest markets, and farmers and artisans from the surrounding area still come here daily to hawk their products. Best of all, though, are the prepared foods, which offer locals and visitors alike a chance to lunch on a sampling of Andalusía’s best traditional tapas.

  5. Museo de Bellas Artes
    5. Museo de Bellas Artes

    Originally a 17th-century Andalusian convent, this pink Baroque building has housed exquisite works of art by Spanish masters such as El Greco and Velázquez – and one of the great Sevillian painters Francisco de Zurbaran – since its transformation into Seville’s fine arts museum in 1835.

  6. Real Alcázar
    6. Real Alcázar

    A dramatic example of the Mudéjar architectural style for which Andalusía is known, Seville’s former royal palace dates to the 14th century, when Pedro I hired Moorish artisans to augment the old Alhomad palace and turn it into a seat of power dripping with Islamic details like vivid ceramic tilework, serene reflecting pools, and intricately carved stonework. To see more of the Mudéjar style, visit Palace of the Marquis of la Algaba, home to the Interpretation Center of Mudéjar Art.

  7. Santa Cruz neighborhood – historic Jewish neighborhood, old town
    7. Santa Cruz neighborhood – historic Jewish neighborhood, old town

    Once Seville's Jewish quarter, the labyrinthine streets of the Santa Cruz neighborhood are lined with colorful houses, fragrant orange trees, tapas restaurants spilling out onto the cobblestones, shops selling local handicrafts, and medieval churches, which were once synagogues. Let your feet lead you to picturesque squares with gurgling fountains, like the Plaza de los Venerables, the Plaza de las Cruces, and the Plaza Alfaro
