  • Seville


Sevilla is Spain at its truest and brightest colours. It’s a burst of passion, flamboyance, music, flamenco dance and great food with a bold flavour. The history of this city is that of Spain; here you will find the essence of what this country is. Immerse yourself in the rich Roman and Moorish heritage, the city’s colonial glory, its tapestry of ornate buildings. Sevilla is bathed in semi-perpetual sunshine and during the hot months los Sevillanos retire within the thick walls of their enclosed gardens until the scorching sun is well and truly disappeared.


Gaytway Guide to Seville

  • Part of the Gaytway purpose is to connect LGBT+ travellers with people, places and experiences. Our specially curated guides introduce you to what's on offer in each destination; where to stay and rest tired weary travellers feet and rejuvinate in between exploring sights and wonders, as well as where you can eat, drink and while the days and night away.

    And because we too love travelling and exploring, and know you can never know everything about somewhere, we would love to hear from you about that great place to stay, the new and hip bar or club in town or ways to meet and connect with the local LGBT+ community. That's why we make it easy for you to send us your own personal recommendations!

    • A huge Cathedral
    • Seville’s Cathedral is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world. It is built on the original mosque that stood here during the Muslim rule. In fact some parts of the old mosque were retained; The Giralda, the cathedral’s belltower is the former minaret of the old mosque.

    • The Alcázar
    • This was the old Royal Palace of the Moorish Kings and it’s just stunning. Centuries later it still performs its function, being still used today by the royal family of Spain as their official Seville residence, the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe.

    • Modern meets old
    • The Metropol Parasol is a wooden structure located at La Encarnación square, in the old quarter of Seville. Designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer it’s the largest wooden structure in the world. Absolutely mesmerizing. There is an archaeological museum underground and a spectacular restaurant on top of the structure, allowing great views.

    • Flamenco
    • There is nothing more Andalucian than Flamenco. And here in Seville the whole thing is often brought to an art form. You will find plenty of Flamenco shows in the city, some more, some less touristy – but it’s really worth spending some time listening and seeing this quintessential Spanish tradition.

    • Seville Fair
    • – If Munich has its Oktoberfest, Seville has its April Fair. It generally begins two weeks after the Easter Holy Week and for the duration of the fair, the fairgrounds and a vast area on the banks of the Guadalquivir River are totally covered in rows of casetas, marquees where there are crowds partying and dancing sevillanas, drinking Sherry, manzanilla or rebujito, and eating tapas, often in traditional dresses throughout the night.
