This is an inexpensive attraction that gadget and panorama fans of all ages will love.

Aquopolis

Seville has numerous attractions, but the torrid heat in the summer months can discourage even the most avid traveler. Lucky, in their creativity, humans have created the perfect remedy for a hot summer day: water parks. Sevilla’s water park is located close to the airport and it is accessible by public transport. You will find something for each family member at Aquapolis, from ‘extreme’ water sliders to toddler’s pools, and even an exclusive, VIP area.
