Visit Seville in summer
Visiting Seville in summer? Great! Seville is an excellent choice year round, including summer. It's true that it is very hot, but that's why we wish to provide you with some recommendations for discovering our city during the summer months. The heat means there are less queues for monuments.
Here are some tips:
- Have breakfast earlier on the terrace at Hotel Murillo. An al fresco breakfast will enable you to start the day with more energy and wonderful views.
- Make the most of the first hours of the morning to visit outdoor places, such as Plaza de España or María Luisa Park. Both are a 15-minute walk from our establishments. You could also check out La Cartuja Monastery and the tour of the Expo 92 pavilions.
- After the middle of the morning, we recommend exploring inside the monuments. Discover the cathedral (it's nice and cool), the Museum of Fine Arts (the second largest art gallery in Spain) or churches such as El Salvador or San Luis de los Franceses (the latter is a perfect example of Seville's baroque period). Of course, you could also visit the Archive of the Indies, which is a World Heritage Site.
- In the afternoon, after lunch and if you don't fancy a siesta, take a walk through the Santa Cruz district. Its streets seem prepared for the heat of summer here as they are extremely narrow and cool. You can also visit the Real Alcázar de Sevilla at this time and spend the afternoon in refreshing gardens and rooms where air conditioning isn't overly necessary.
- Night time is the perfect moment for a walk along the banks of the river, visiting Triana and enjoying tapas in any of the terrace in the old fishing district.
We hope our tips help you on your visit to Seville this summer.
