Due to its position at the southern tip of Europe, Seville has always been a cultural melting pot; a crossroads, and a port of departure and arrival for great journeys and discoveries. Today, Seville is a major centre of communications that connects the province with the rest of the world. There is always a means of public transport to take you to your destination, and there are numerous options for adventure in the towns and in the city of Seville.
An immense legacy waiting to be discovered
The monumental heritage of Seville’s 106 towns and villages is the richest in Andalusia, with almost 300 monuments declared Assets of Cultural Interest. We invite you to discover the province’s hidden treasures in our streets, countryside, and museums: archaeology, goldsmithing, architecture, mining sites, prehistoric caves, dolmens, museums, baroque treasures in churches and monasteries, Roman engineering... an immense legacy waiting to be discovered.
Art, feeling and tradition
In the province of Seville, tradition is very much alive. Religion and festivity, rites and myths come together in a unique way in an explosion of popular culture.
Spring in the province of Seville has a special colour and smell, with the Seville April Fair and Holy Week in every town. Our towns and villages are filled with pilgrimages, processions, May crosses and country days, with deeply rooted agricultural traditions. In the province of Seville alone, around 80 festivals are held between the months of April and June. And the festivities continue into the autumn season, with bullfighting and flamenco festivals, theatre, film, and dance. Join us and enjoy the chapels and churches, the natural landscapes, equestrian traditions, and the cuisine of each town.
More than 300 natural sites and nature reserves
Nature has been generous with the province of Seville. There are more than 300 natural sites and nature reserves, protected parks and landscapes, and natural monuments sculpted by the basins of the Guadalquivir and its tributary the Guadiamar, where the impact of centuries of human activity is sometimes on show. Here you’ll experience a special harmony with nature: wetlands that are the only ones of their kind in Europe, countryside, forests and gullies; protected ecosystems among which the natural parks of Doñana and the Natural Park Sierra Morena Sevillana stand out.
Expect the extraordinary in Seville, from the marshes of the Guadalquivir – a reserve for birds travelling between Africa and Europe – to the wild and mountainous landscape of the Sierra Norte, with its clear starry skies free of light pollution. Get to know our exceptional geological heritage: fossil deposits, Palaeozoic acid rocks and volcanic rocks.
Tapas: eat well and drink even better
You eat the way you feel. In Seville, our cuisine is a mixture of cultures: Roman, Andalusian, Jewish, colonial, and American. In Seville and its towns, the culinary star is the tapas: the tasting of local and regional products in small portions, with elegance and flavour. Small yet great cuisine of popular origin and now of high standing: creative and innovative tapas by our Michelin-starred chefs.
