The charming city of Seville is popular with pilgrims and art-lovers alike, but it can also be a great destination for a romantic weekend escape. Whereas Barcelona and Paris are Europe’s well known romantic cities, they are often too crowded to ever offer the intimacy that most couples seek for. Which is not always the case with Seville.

Although a big city and major tourists attraction, Seville has preserved a certain freshness that makes it a very original destination for romantics. Its historic center, its restaurants and hotels create the kind of atmosphere that kindles love and poetry. These are just a few examples of romantic attractions in Seville:

Royal Alcazar

The Alcazar of Seville is not only a major attraction in the city, but also one of the finest example of mudejar architecture. Once you enter the gate of this medieval palace you will marvel at the beauty of its rooms, interior courts, gardens and fountains, but also at the creativity of its architects. The centerpiece of the palace are the underground baths which use rain water to function. The palace has also witnessed numerous love stories, and the guides will probably tell you some of them.
