To do in Seville

Qué hacer en Sevilla

What can we do in Seville if we have ONE DAY or if we have a few hours?

You are leaving your suitcase and/or belongings in the neighborhood of Santa Catalina, one of the neighborhoods that make up the city center of Seville. Let us tell you a bit more about this neighborhood. Its origins date back to the years 1500 and 1600, with structures and streets similar to what we see today. It is also home to charming squares such as Plaza de los Terceros or Ponce de León, which are well worth a visit to enjoy and marvel at their rich architectural heritage. This neighborhood is filled with churches, such as the Church of Santa Catalina, recently restored and open to the public, in Gothic-Mudéjar style. It was declared a National Monument in 1912.

From this location, our recommendation is to continue towards the iconic Metropol Parasol (Las Setas de Sevilla), passing through Plaza de San Pedro and Cristo de Burgos, where you will find the Parish Church of San Pedro, a Gothic-Mudéjar style church from the 14th century.
Just around the corner is Santa Ángela de la Cruz Street, which leads us to the Foundational House of the Little Sisters of the Poor, where the popular Saint is buried. If you are interested, you can see her embalmed. Here is the link for more information:

Also, before continuing towards the Metropol Parasol, you can take a detour to the Palacio de Dueñas, which belongs to the House of Alba. It is the birthplace of the poet Antonio Machado and houses a large collection of paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts from the 16th to the 20th centuries. Due to its historical and artistic value, it was declared a Cultural Heritage Site in 1931. Here you can find all the information for access:

Back on the initial path, we arrive at our destination, the Metropol Parasol, commonly known as Las Setas de Sevilla, located in the famous Plaza de la Encarnación, in the neighborhood of San Juan de la Palma. This monument is a modern wooden structure that hovers over the traditional square, measuring approximately 150 x 70 meters in length and reaching a height of 26 meters. It was designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer with the aim of bringing life to the square, and it has succeeded, becoming the third most visited monument in the city. Notable features include its two large concrete columns that house the elevators to access the viewpoint

it’s morning and not Sunday, the Mercado de Abastos will be open, where you can purchase local products and enjoy some snacks. Leaving behind this impressive monument, you can continue your stroll towards the Seville Cathedral, but we recommend making a stop at Plaza de El Salvador, one of the most pleasant squares in Seville, to have a beer or a soft drink. The fastest way to reach this place would be through the aforementioned Las Setas, crossing to the other side of the viewpoint and entering Puente y Pellón Street, which leads to Córdoba Street. As you walk through it, you’ll be greeted by the intense smell of incense, typical of Seville’s Holy Week. If, on the other hand, you prefer to go shopping, you can leave Las Setas behind and continue along Imagen-Laraña-Martín Villa Street until you reach Plaza de la Campana. From there, you can access Sierpes, Velázquez, or Tetuán Streets and enjoy various shops and bars.

From these points, you should head towards the Seville Cathedral and the Giralda, and one of the best ways to get there is through Francos and Placentines Streets. Once you arrive, take your time to explore the surroundings and let yourself be carried away. You cannot leave without entering the cathedral, where, after admiring its facade, you should step inside to see the fantastic Main Altarpiece, the Patio de los Naranjos, and the tomb of Christopher Columbus. Afterward, climb to the top of the Giralda and enjoy the breathtaking views of the city.

Upon leaving the cathedral, continue your visit to the Alcázar of Seville, a fortified palace that transitioned from being the residence of Caliphs to Christian Kings. Don’t miss the various courtyards, halls, and take time to relax in its beautiful gardens.

If you don’t have more time, on Mateos Gago Street, you can find countless bars where you can relax and enjoy typical Sevillian cuisine. One of our favorites is Bodega las Columnas, but you can also try Taberna Álvaro Peregil or Bar Las Teresas.

Do you have time to continue exploring the city after lunch? Well, let’s keep going! We’re heading to the Santa Cruz neighborhood.

During the walk, you will pass by places such as Casa de Salinas, Calle Mesón del Moro, the former synagogue and now Church of Santa María la Blanca, until you reach the touristy Calle Cruces, which has three wrought-iron crosses. From there, you will arrive at Plaza de Santa Cruz, where the popular flamenco tablao Los Gallos is located. Afterwards, explore charming corners such as Callejón del Agua, Calle Pimienta, Plaza de Doña Elvira, Calle Reinoso, Patio de Banderas, Plaza de los Refinadores, and the Hospital de los Venerables Sacerdotes. A great way to learn more about the history of this popular neighborhood and its main places is to book a guided free tour.

Next stop! The Torre del Oro! But be careful, it closes at 6:45 PM. It’s another iconic and best viewpoint in the city that we recommend visiting. With a height of 36 meters, if you don’t want to go inside, at least you should see it up close by the river. It will seem like a dream. Leaving the Torre del Oro behind, we go to Plaza de España (Spain Square), an impressive monumental square and one of the most beautiful in the world. After exploring the galleries and crossing one of the bridges over the canal, you can’t leave the square without taking a photo sitting on the tile bench representing your province if you are Spanish, or of course, take it on the one representing Seville! You’ll have a lovely memory!

And to end the day, if you still have time, we recommend crossing the Isabel II Bridge to enjoy the lively atmosphere of the Triana neighborhood. Take a stroll through the neighborhood and have some delicious tapas at Bar Triana or nearby Bodega Sol y Sombra, among others.



We can advise you on how to get to Santa Justa Train Station or Seville Airport:

1- SANTA JUSTA TRAIN STATION: You have the following options:

a. ON FOOT! It’s not the most comfortable option, but it depends on the luggage you have and whether it’s light or not. It takes about 18 minutes from LOCKERS SEVILLA to the station. If you have time, you can take a pleasant walk. Here’s the link so you can connect it to your mobile and follow the route without getting lost.


b. BY CITY BUS. In Seville, the company in charge of urban transportation is TUSSAM, and it’s also a very quick and economical option. The usual schedule is from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM. There are also night lines.

To do this, pick up your luggage and leave the street where LOCKERS SEVILLA is located towards Calle Juan de Mesa. Turn right, very close to the entrance of Hotel Baco, across from Plaza Ponce de León, you’ll find the bus stop that will take you to the station. The bus number is 32. During the bus ride, there is a small screen describing the route. You should get off when it says “Estación de Santa Justa” or simply ask the driver to let you know.

How much does the ticket cost and where can I buy it? The individual ticket costs 1.40 euros per person and you can buy it directly from the bus driver. It’s valid for a single trip. From 9:00 PM onwards, you’ll need to have the exact change for each ticket.

If you’re traveling with more people, it might be worth it to purchase the multi-trip card. The minimum recharge for this card is 7 euros, and each ticket would cost 0.69 euros. However, until June 30, 2023, there is a reduced price of 0.35 euros per person and trip.
