Spring has sprung in Seville! Temperatures are heading upwards, the smell of orange blossom is filling the streets and the city has come alive again after the winter!
Seville is famous for its scorching summers, but if you feel like seeing the city in all its glory without the extreme heat, March is the perfect time to plan a trip. Temperatures tend to average around 15-20 degrees and with clear skies most days, you can relax and take in the amazing views across the city. Check out our suggestions for things to do in Seville in March and get planning the trip of a lifetime!
Catch an unmissable art exhibition
Commemorating the huge artistic contribution of two of Seville’s most iconic painters, you can’t miss the Velázquez Murillo Exhibition at Hospital de los Venerables this month. The original run of the exhibition was just until the end of February, but (thankfully) it was extended due to popular demand. Pioneers of the Baroque artistic period, this is your last chance to see these masterful works of art. Some of the artists’ best works are on display, including depictions of Seville’s patron saints and a number of self-portraits. For art fanatics and relative newbies looking for things to do in Seville in March, this is an unmissable opportunity!
Location: Hospital de los Venerables, Plaza de los Venerables, 8
Times: Monday to Sunday 10:00 – 18:00
Price: 8€, free entry Tuesdays from 14:00 – 18:00
Join us on a special day trip
This month we are launching a special wine-focused day trip to beautiful Jerez, Spain’s first official wine region! Home to Andalusia’s iconic sherry wine, Jerez is a fascinating place full of history and, you guessed it, delicious wines. What’s interesting, is there is more to this wine region than just sherry, our action packed experience includes a more modern winery showing off the reds and rosés of the region and many more fascinating cultural insights. Stay tuned to our website for more details soon!
Lose yourself in the Jewish Quarter
One of the most historic parts of Seville, the Jewish Quarter is always worth getting lost in. But with the orange blossom beginning in March, it’s our favourite time to stroll the narrow streets and explore the hidden squares of this part of Seville. Especially beautiful is the Plaza de Doña Maria, a hidden gem in the Santa Cruz neighbourhood that is ornately decorated and beautifully covered in vibrant orange trees. Perfect to sit down and take in the unique beauty of Seville and one of our absolute favourite things to do in Seville in March.
Visit the Roman market
Are you a fan of Roman culture? You’re in luck! The III Jornadas Romanas takes place in the Alameda de Hercules at the end of March. Over the course of the weekend, there will be a Roman market in place in the Alameda square. You can buy handmade crafts and clothing, enjoy performances by local performers and taste some delicious food. If you’re bringing the kids on your trip to Seville, there are also attractions and a whole host of activities, especially for younger audiences. There will be a food collection throughout the weekend and all funds raised will be donated to a local charity!
Dates: March 31st – April 2nd
