Back again to $10, time flies so fast when you’re in the quarantine… The next thing you know, it’s the last post in August’s $10 series already!
This week, we’re going to Southern Andalusia to talk about places and activities you shouldn’t miss in the capital city: Seville.
After covering Cordoba and listing Cruzcampo as one of the most recommended local beer around the world, thanks to Paulina of Visit Southern Spain, we could find out more things to do on the budget in South Andalusia.
So, what could you get in Seville on the budget? Check this out!
Things to Do in Seville on the Budget
While the city of Seville has affordable rates for accommodation, entertainment, and food, there are still a dozen of things that are really cost-effective and will cost you really low or even free.
If you are wondering in which neighborhood in Seville to stay for budget travel, I recommend La Macarena.
Did you know?
The most recent UEFA Europa’s champion in 2020, Sevilla FC is based in Seville with their stadium called Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, which is named after the club’s former president.
Have Churros for Breakfast
Definitely, you won’t want to wander around in the city with an empty stomach so fill it up with churros in breakfast while you begin your day. You may visit Bar Comercio on Calle Lineros that is famous amongst tourists and locals too.
Join the Free Walking Tour in Seville
If you are on a tight budget, you can plan to take a free walking tour and explore the various things to do in Seville.
This three hours free tour by the local guides begins at Puerta de Jerez and ends at Plaza de Espana.
Just to be nice and show some appreciation for the tour undertaken you may hand them some tips as per your wish.
Old Jewish Quarter in Seville
Next on the list is the visit to Seville’s Old Jewish Quarter where the tiny streets are full of orange trees, cafés, bodegas, shops, buskers, and good food.
Do not miss out visiting the world’s largest Gothic cathedral by volume, Torre Giralda & The Cathedral with 35 inclined ramps and 17 stairs.
Watch Bullfighting Live in the Arena
If you are someone who is into sports and have seen bullfighting on screen, then don’t miss the lifetime opportunity to see where it happens.
Visit the bullring, and in less than $10, you can get a guided tour of the arena and access to the museum as well.
Metropol Parasol, mushroom-like wooden structures are aesthetically pleasing and worth seeing.
Don’t Miss Flamenco!
Your on-budget things to do in Seville remains incomplete if you miss out on Flamenco. You can visit La Carboneria, where you can get your hands on the wines, sangria, or beer, and Flamenco comes complementary with live musicians. You can get a glass of wine for less than 2€!
Some Other Places You Shouldn’t Miss While in Seville
San Fernando Cemetery is another beautiful and silent place with bullfighters like Paquirri and flamenco singers, war heroes, and criminals names illustrated. In the meanwhile, if you are hungry after visiting all these places, it’s time to fill your stomach.
Head your way to Taberna Los Coloniales where at really low costs you can feed yourself on big plates. Even though you have a less budget these things are full of solemnity and merrymaking.
So, when are you planning to visit your first trip in the capital city of South Andalusia?
