First-time Budget Weekend in Sevilla



Description:

Sevilla, the capital of Andalucía, is one of the most visited cities on the Iberian peninsula. Many of its customs and traditions are what people consider to be some of the most prominent Spanish traditions. This is where you’ll find flamenco, Moorish architecture, bullfighting, and a number of popular tapas bars with a lively nightlife scene.

If you only have a weekend to visit, these are the most popular attractions to put on your list, and all of them are free or around 8€ (Cathedral, Reales Alcázares). One of the nice things about Sevilla is that much of the city can be appreciated just by walking around. During the day, take note of the azulejo (ceramic tiles) and the bright colors used in the Moorish architecture throughout lively, sunny Sevilla, and then go out for tapas at night. If you can fit it in your budget, we’ve also included a flamenco show for your second night.

Day 1 - Seville


Arrive in Sevilla and settle into Hostal Da Vinchi, a popular spot for backpackers that’s centrally located. Grab an affordable lunch at La Judería, which serves traditional Andalusian food, and afterward, make your way to the Cathedral, which is the third largest church in the world. The Torre del Oro is another popular monument and an example of Moorish architecture, and this is a good spot for photos as well, as it is located along the river. At night, enjoy superior quality tapas and a few drinks at popular restaurant and tapas bar, Enrique Becerra.

Day 2 - Seville


In the morning, you can stick to your budget by getting an empanada from any local pastelería, but if you want a larger breakfast, try Orange—it’s a hip spot that’s open all day, and they even have flamenco shows at night. Ask about the schedule and prices to consider it an option for later on. Next, explore Los Reales Alcázares, an Arab palace built in the 10th century. For lunch, go to Vineria San Telmo. This restaurant has delicious tapas at very affordable prices, which make it a hot spot in the evenings. Since you’re on a schedule, skip the crowds and go during lunch instead. Take a walk over to Plaza de España and the Parque de María Luisa, where you won’t have to pay anything to appreciate the architecture, history, and beauty of Sevilla. El Rinconcillo, the oldest bar in Sevilla, is your go-to bar for tapas in the evening. If your budget includes a flamenco show, choose between Orange and El Arenal for some exciting entertainment tonight.
