Seville Bucket List

Seville Bucket List

Whether you are an Erasmus+ student, or a visitor staying for a while, forget FOMO when in Seville! We have put together a complete bucket list, including tips and suggestions for best prices and places, that will be your guide throughout your stay in the capital of Andalusia, so you can have the full experience and immerse yourself in the Sevillian/Andalusian culture.


  • Explore the Real Alcázar

    The Real Alcázar of Seville is one of the oldest palaces in use in the world. A palace that has lived through different stages in time, from the end of the 11th century to the present day, and that has contemplated the influence of the different cultures that have passed through Seville. Pro-tip: entrance is 1€ on Mondays from 18:00 if you book online in advance!
  • Stroll around Parque de María Luisa

    This historical park is special for all its monuments, buildings, roundabouts, fountains and ponds. Within the park you will find the famous Plaza de España and the Plaza de América.
  • Climb the Giralda

    The Cathedral of Seville is the largest in Spain and the third largest in the world. This iconic building can be seen from many points in the city, as it’s the tallest building within the walls. It’s undoubtedly beautiful from the outside, but its interior is just as special you can see the grave of Christopher Columbus and climb the Giralda tower for amazing sights of the city. Pro-tip: entrance is 6€ for <25 year-old students if you buy tickets online!
  • Go to Las Setas at sunset

    Las Setas de Sevilla, also known as the Metropol Parasol, is the largest wooden structure in the world. You can go up to the viewpoint and enjoy the best panoramic views of the city for only 5€.
  • Visit the Archaeological Ensemble of Itálica

    Itálica is an ancient Roman city and amphitheatre built around the year 206 b.C. It’s a World Heritage site located in Santiponce, a few minutes out of Seville.
  • Take a day/weekend trip to nearby cities

    Andalusia has some of the most beautiful cities and beaches in Spain. Visit Córdoba and Granada for city tourism, and Cádiz, Málaga and Tarifa (southernmost point of continental Europe) for beach leisure. Pro-tip: check BlaBlaCar for cheaper transport!

Food & Drinks

  • Eat churros

    With or without chocolate, you must try the local churros for breakfast at least once. We highly recommend Quiosco de Calentitos, the popular kiosk located in front of the arch of Macarena, open every day from 9:00 to 12:00.
  • Try the traditional tapas

    You will never go short of great places and tasty tapas to eat and repeat. Caracoles (snails), salmorejo (cold tomato soup), espinacas con garbanzos (spinach & chickpeas), solomillo al whisky (pork loin with whisky sauce), boquerones fritos (fried white anchovies) and tortilla de patatas (Spanish tortilla) are some of the many flavourful dishes in Seville. Pro-tip: go in a group so you can share different tapas!
  • Try the local drinks

    A cold bevvy will always be a good idea in such a warm city. Cruzcampo is the beer from Seville that you will see everywhere; orange wine is impeccable, otherwise you can opt for tinto de verano or the beloved sangria; and don’t forget to try rebujito (white cherry wine + lemonade), an Andalusian drink typical of the Feria de Sevilla. 

Seville Bucket List Churros


  • Watch a flamenco show

    Olé! Andalusia is the birthplace of flamenco and Seville is home to some of the best flamenco shows. Pro-tip: find shows with local people, such as Peña Flamenca Torres Macarena.
  • Do a language exchange

    There is no better way to learn Spanish than to speak it with Spanish people. There are plenty of language exchange events happening every week in Seville, where you will meet young locals and play fun games that will stimulate your skills and knowledge.
  • Hire a rowing boat at Plaza de España

    Test your rowing capabilities in the artificial but charming lake that surrounds the symbolic square. 
  • Do a ceramics workshop in Triana

    Triana has been famous for its ceramic tiles for many centuries, and many companies offer the unique experience of painting your own tiles. Our suggestions are Barro Azul, La Tetera de Madera, Espacio Barro, Virgen Cerámica and Estudio Yoko.
  • Eat/drink at El Rinconcillo

    El Rinconcillo is one of the oldest tapas bars in Seville, dating back to 1670, and a great place to try traditional dishes.
  • Kayak or paddle board in the Guadalquivir

    No experience is needed to embark on a more active adventure like kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding. Observe some of Seville’s most emblematic spots from another point of view: the neighborhood of Triana, the pavilions of Expo 92, historic bridges, castles and monuments. Pro-tip: do it at sunset!
  • Spend a day at Isla Mágica

    If you are a fan of amusement parks, we have great news for you! On the other side of the river you will find Isla Mágica, a theme and water park. Apart from plenty of rides and rollercoasters, it contains an artificial beach, a wave pool, slides, swimming pools, a lazy river and a relaxation area. Pro-tip: buy tickets online for cheaper prices!
