Covid situation in Andalusia:

The situation with the pandemic and restrictions is changing. For more information read the Coronavirus update in Andalusia.

What to see in Seville in two days? With so little time available, you have to select the most important monuments in Seville to visit. Normally I suggest dedicating to the capital of Andalusia at least three full days to be able to enjoy externally and internally the Plaza de España, the Cathedral, the Alcazar and all the other Sevillian wonders. For this, I present the monuments of Seville which must absolutely be seen. This article is just meant to be inspirational. For more detailed information on the places proposed, I recommend consulting the complete guide "What to see in Seville".
