Visit Seville for Christmas

hotel rey moro

Make the decision for a getaway to the Andalusian capital and stay at a hotel in the centre of Seville. There is no better time than Christmas to do it. For a Christmas full of magic and colours, Seville has specially dressed herself up and prepared a wide variety of activities for its residents and visitors.

In particular, if you have already planned for a charming trip to Seville in the end of December, please let us recommend the following activities that you should not miss:

  • Visit nativity scenes. The land of Giralda has kept all its Christmas traditions, among which there are very typical things of Spain such as the nativity scenes. For this reason, one should never miss the opportunity of seeing some of the most beautiful nativity scenes set up at the symbolic places of the city.

  • Try the cakes. One of the charms during the holiday season is the typical gastronomy that people prepare. If you are a sweets lover, a tour to the Sevillian convents where the nuns hand-make sweets such as polvorones, mantecados among many others is a must.

  • Sightseeing in the old town. It is obviously necessary to take advantage of your stay for visiting different sightseeing spots in the central areas of the city, such as el Prado de San Sebastián, where you would see spectacular Ferris wheels and ice rink.

  • Strolling around the city centre. The street Sierpes, Plaza de San Francisco and the area of La Campana are three must-go places in Seville during Christmas. The true spirit of holiday season stands out in these areas through the decorations, the Christmas carols from the street artists even those stalls selling roasted chestnuts.

If you are going to visit Seville during these days, we recommend EME Catedral Hotel, a hotel in the centre of Seville with a perfect location and exclusive views to the Giralda that would take your breath away in a second.
