Visit Seville in March
Visiting Seville in March is a great choice. This month, Seville is awaking from its winter slumber and welcoming spring. It is the month that oversees the final sprint to put the finishing touches to its two main events: Easter Week and Fair. For this reason, this post on what to do in Seville in March will inform you of highlighted events and interesting tourist activities you can attend as well as explain to you more about the lives of the locals. We should also state that we are offering you breakfast in Hotel Murillo and Murillo Apartments free if you book directly on our website. Our main suggestion for the month of March in Seville is a walk around the city. Enjoy the scent of orange blossom as it begins to flower on the more than 25,000 orange trees in Seville, mixed with the scent of incense that impregnates the entire city. This is Seville letting you know it's ready to welcome spring at the end of the month. Enter churches and chapels and you'll find brotherhoods preparing for the festivities, which involve moving religious statues, among other events. As you move from one place to another, take note of the shops selling flamenco items (these can be found around Plaza del Salvador, on Calle Francos, Calle Blanca de los Ríos...) and watch women entering and leaving them after choosing fabrics, trying on flamenco dresses, selecting flowers, browsing shawls, picking out earrings...

While wandering around at night or enjoying some food and drink you may find 'costaleros' practicing on a corner in the centre of Seville. Here's a link showing the times and places if you don't want to leave it to chance. You may also hear the bands that accompany them during Easter practicing near the river.

Apart from walking around Seville, we would like to recommend some other activities you can enjoy during March: - Velázquez Exhibition opposite Murillo. This is being extended until 2 April. You can find it opposite Hotel Murillo ands Murillo Apartments. If you would like further information, you can find out more in our November post. - Another activity you should check out in March is a visit to the cathedral's roof. You can enjoy a guided tour that combines culture with unique views of the city. We recommend asking for information from the company Sevilla Con Arte and booking in advance. Tours are scheduled and places are limited. - "Flamenco Thursdays" also take place this month with the Fundación Cajasol in Seville. Venue: Salón de Actos del Centro Cultural de Cajasol, Plaza de San Francisco, 1. When: Thursdays in March, April and June. Time: 9pm. Cost: Tickets between €6 and €18.
