A route to visit Seville in 3 days

What to see in Seville on the first day

Seville-GiraldaThe best thing for the first day is to start the visit at the most famous monument in Seville, the spectacular Giralda.

And next to it we find the beautiful Cathedral of Seville, located at the foot of the most famous tower in the city.

Inside the Cathedral of Seville you can visit the Alabaster Chapel and the Tomb of Christopher Columbus, although there is controversy as to whether the remains found there really belong to the discoverer.

What to see in Seville in three days - Patio de los NaranjosAfter visiting the interior of the Cathedral we can go inside the Giralda, with entrance from the interior itself and climb its ramp to the top from where we will have great views of Seville, its surroundings and also the famous Patio de los Naranjos of the Cathedral where we will go after descending again.

The next point of our visit this first day is the Reales Alcázares, a refuge of peace and nature that we should not miss.

Reales Alcázares

It is the oldest palace in the world, with Muslim, Mudejar and Gothic styles, so a tour of its interior is like taking a tour of the history of architecture.

After crossing the Puerta del León we will go through the different courtyards and palaces, as well as its beautiful gardens before continuing our tour of Seville.

If you want all of the above to be presented to you by a professional guide, do not miss out on the guided tour of Seville and skip-the-line entrance to the Cathedral and the Alcazar

Nearby is the Archivo de Indias, the third point of interest along with the previous two that form the World Heritage Site of Seville.

Important documents related to the discovery of America are preserved there.

The walk of this first day in Seville ends in the Plaza Nueva, where the Town Hall is located, and its surroundings, being able to make our purchases in the famous Calle Sierpes.

What to visit in Seville on the second day

What to visit in Seville in three daysAfter a very complete first day visiting the area where the main monuments of Seville are located, on this second day we move a little away from the center to see other places of great interest.

First of all, we will go to the Plaza de América, inside the Parque de María Luísa, where you can visit the three buildings that were built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 and that also left other jewels in the city.

An interesting activity to do in Seville is this guided visit to the Parque de María Luisa.

But the best thing that that exhibition left us was the Plaza de España, a tribute to all the provinces of Spain and with an enviable architecture that simulates an embrace of the Guadalquivir River and where it is impossible for its beauty not to flood our eyes.

Seville - Spain SquareNext to the Plaza de España is the most famous park in Seville, the Parque de María Luisa, a beautiful park, an open-air museum, where you can enjoy the tranquility and nature and relax.

Seville is a very hot place, so if you go at a time when the sun is hot, it will come in handy to cool off and regain strength.

After leaving the park and admiring the San Telmo Palace, we can go to the Tobacco Factory, a great symbol of the industrial revolution that currently houses the headquarters of the University of Seville.

And to end the day you can return to the center of Seville to enjoy its gastronomy and a flamenco show.

What to see on the third day in Seville

Seville - Gold TowerFor the last day we have left another of the most important and visited places in Seville, the famous Torre del Oro.

On the banks of the Guadalquivir River and in the port area we find this beautiful tower, which we also recommend visiting at dusk on any of the other days because when illuminated it is also beautiful.

Inside is also the Naval Museum, with models, navigation charts and other details that take you through the history of navigation in Seville.

The next point of interest is found a little far from there. It is the Museum of Fine Arts but we can walk along the river or in a horse-drawn carriage. Halfway there, do not forget to enjoy the façade of the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, or a visit to its museum if you like the world of bullfighting.

Seville - Triana neighborhoodAfter visiting the Museum of Fine Arts, we recommend you cross the river and enter one of the most special and charming neighborhoods in Seville, the Barrio de Triana, the cradle of flamenco.

In its alleys you can feel like one more Sevillian and enjoy the atmosphere of the most authentic Seville. Do not forget to enter one of its tapas bars or enjoy every corner of this genuine neighborhood.

We hope that with this three-day route you can enjoy one of the most beautiful and charming cities in Spain.

If you have more time or want to change something from this route, in Seville you can also visit the Hospital de los Venerables or you can also spend a good day in Isla Mágica.
