Seville is described as the quintessential Spanish town. It’s definitely got a lot of charm and plenty of sights to see.
We stayed in an apartment in the city center, which is close to most of the tourist attractions.
Fargo – Possibly my favorite meal in town came as a break from paella and bread heavy traditional food. The diner is very trendy and serves vegan and gluten-free organic dishes. It’s popular with Americans.
El Pinton – This spot is perfectly Instagram-worthy. Grab some light tapas and…
El Pasaje Bar – We swung into this bar for some happy hour tapas and glasses of sangria.
Luckily we were in town on the weekend and Seville has a vibrant night life. Most of the gay bars are along Alameda de Hércules.
1987 Bar – This is an 80s themed dance club.
Bohemia Bar – You’ll find the bears at this watering hole.
El Bosque Animado – This was my favorite gay bar in town. It was perfectly rowdy but we managed to snag a patio table to sit back at.
El Baron Rampante – This one is similar to the El Bosque and sits next door. Their patios are essentially one.
La Carboneria Bar – If you’re looking for flamenco but don’t want to pay for a show, this bar offers free flamenco performances. But do be prepared for plenty of drunken tourists.
Cathedral of Seville – Get the best view of Seville by climbing to the top of La Giralda and wait for the bell to ring out.
The Real Alcázar – My favorite site in Seville, the Alcazar is a Moorish palace with impressive tile, gorgeous gardens, and tranquil courtyards.
The Jewish Quarter – If you’re walking around to all of the typical tourist spots, you’ll find yourself strolling through the Jewish Quarter. Slow down, it’s definitely charming.
Plaza de España – You won’t find a stick of shade at this place, we learned that the hard way. It was a sweltering day when we decided to wander around the plaza.
Metropol Parasol – Arguably the largest wooden structure in the world, the Metropol Parasol hovers over a small plaza and marketplace. We stopped here for lunch and of course Instagram opportunities.
