There are many places to catch a flamenco show in Seville, from professional performances, and tablaos, to flamenco bars and the peñas flamencas, cultural associations dedicated to flamenco. La Carboneria is a popular spot with lots of tourists there to enjoy free flamenco in a noisy atmosphere. For more information see my Flamenco in Seville section.

Welcome to Exploreseville, where you can find helpful information for the visitor, student or expat. I highly recommend you read the site guide to locate whatever you're looking for. If you're looking for pictures but don't have time for all the photo albums, you can take a quick photo tour of Seville. To keep you informed about what's going on in Sevilla check out the sections below for daily updates. For daily updates of life in Seville, check out the Exploreseville Blog.

October in Seville! We head into what should be Seville's second spring in the October, although it feels like the end of a six month long summer! On tap: first off the Cirque du Soleil once again comes to Seville, this time with Corteo. The Casa de la Diputacion has a great exhibit with some works of Diego Rivera on display. Spanish first division action is heating up, and don't miss a chance to catch a Betis match, with dates against Levante and Rayo Vallecano in October. If you like the organic scene, don't miss the Feria Ecologico (Organic Trade Fair) towards the end of the month. Recent news is the Davis Cup Finals which have selected Seville as the venue in early December. Or you can visit the newly opened market in Plaza de la Encarnacion. The entire structure is finally finished except for the top level - you can take the elevator up for a good view but I don't recommend it during the summer unless it's later in the day. You can buy in the market, and the museum in the lower level is also up and running. And there is always a flamenco show to see, and of course t, he tapas bars and restaurants await you!

For other ideas, take a look at my side trips section for destinations close by, or the: "85 Things to do in Seville" for some fun. The list is growing, so soon it will hit 101 things! I've launched a new Sevilla WiFi map, plus a hotel and hostal map which gives you more options than you will find on any other site! Finally, new individual establishments have been added in the hostal and hotel pages. If you're looking to rent an apartment, or find a hotel in Seville, check out the recently updated sections. I also recommend checking out sevilla5.com. Plenty of options from budget to the extravagant.

Spanish Courses in Seville

85 Things to do in Seville

One of the best ways to get to Seville for longer than just a few days is to study Spanish in a language school. There are several private Spanish Courses in Sevilleschools waiting to take you in, teach you some Spanish and find you a place to live. From intensive Spanish courses to private lessons - no matter what level - you can find a school in the city center. If you are interested in seeing some of the options, look no further! I've organized a little list of Spanish schools in Seville, with links directly to their web sites so you can request more information. All you have to do is pick a date and select a school. Check out the Spanish Courses in Seville section for more information.


Most people want to know what are the must see or do activities in Sevilla. While many already know to visit the 85 Things to do in SevilleCathedral or the Alcazar there are plenty of other activities which might not make every guide book or be recommended by your friends who've been to Seville before. With the help of some locals and visitors, plus my own experiences, I put together a list of 51 things you don't want to miss when you're in the city. Well, now it's grown to 85 as it's taken some time since I first started. I hope there's something listed will peak your interest. To find out more take a look at the new section, now appropriately named 85 things you should do in Sevilla.






Monthly Photo
Real Betis - Real Madrid
Past Photos of the Week

Real Madrid came to town over Valentine's Day weekend, but there wasn't much love for the team in Seville. Entering as heavy favorites - Madrid has been dominating the league, far out in front of Barcelona, while Betis is at the other end of the table - the game turned into a nightmare for Real, and happiness for us beticos. Thorsten, my coworker, took some photos. Above you can see Palmerín, the Betis mascot, shaking hands with Raul before the start. The good thing about Seville is the two first division teams (well, the good thing is Betis), so you can catch a match just about every weekend: Consult the Betis and Sevilla combined home match schedule.

Basic Information

From money to mobile phones, accommodations to the sites, or technology and the internet, you can read a little about it all here. You'll find some useful information as well as a few of my general observations on life and culture in Sevilla to help you understand some of the quirks and differences of life here. I've also included sections on tourist info such as transportation, shopping, nightlife (la marcha), hotels and hostals as well as where to buy food when you're sick of eating out. With some recommended books and helpful links I hope to assist those of you looking for more information on some specific topics. Finally, if you're looking for a more long term stay in Seville take a look at the living and moving sections.

Dining out in Seville

I frequent many tapas bars and restaurants in Sevilla, hoping to discover a few surprises hidden in the back alleys. I've also added international and vegetarian options. And with some recent work, the sections have been reworked and launched, with even more informatio. Soon to come: some photos and helpful tips on eating out. I've broken down the restaurants in Sevilla by neighborhood, but even if you don't know Sevilla that well you shouldn't have any problems locating these places with a map! And of course I've added a number of new places to eat and there are now over 60 bars and restaurants, from places for locals only (until you show up!), tapas or a complete meal.
