With so many beautiful parks, stunning views and amazing restaurants, Seville is the perfect place to spend a romantic evening with that someone special.
For many people, Seville is one of the most romantic cities in Spain, and even in all of Europe. It takes just one stroll through the historic city center to feel the special atmosphere of the Andalusian capital. Whether you’re taking in the beautiful landscape by day or meandering through the gently lit streets at night, romance can be found around every corner in Seville
Of course, we do celebrate Valentine’s Day in Seville, but you will see just as many loved-up enamorados walking hand-in-hand through the city on any normal day as you do on February 14th. There are many hidden romantic places in the city, but here are some of our top suggestions for romantic things to do in Seville.
Take a romantic stroll
Sometimes the simplest of things can be the most romantic. Parque María Luisa is a must-see when you’re in Seville, and with so much space and greenery it’s the perfect place for an intimate picnic on the grass. When the sun goes down, take a stroll down by the river from the Torre del Oro towards the iconic Puente de Isabel II, an especially beautiful sight at night. Then settle into one of the riverside bars for a drink – a perfect romantic evening in Seville!
Sit down to a special dinner
Seville may be famous for its casual tapas bars and restaurants, but when the occasion calls there are a number of amazing sit-down restaurants in the city. And if you really want to impress your other half, why not wine and dine them at some of Seville’s fine-dining restaurants.
Perhaps the most appropriate for a special romantic night is Abades Triana (Calle Betis, 69), where the food is great but the views across the river are absolutely spectacular – this is THE place to go if a candle-lit dinner is top of your list of romantic things to do in Seville.
Take in a breath taking view, drink in hand
With so many amazing monuments in Seville, it’s only natural you’re going to have a number of rooftop bars with a view in the city. The Hotel Doña Maria has a cozy rooftop with incredible views of the city’s Cathedral and Giralda. Thinking of planning a romantic evening during the colder months in Seville? Don’t worry! Get a round of drinks, head up to the rooftop for sunset and snuggle up beside the stove heaters that bars put out for colder weather. That sure sounds romantic to us!
Relax in the Arabic Baths
The Moorish influence on the architecture in Seville is perhaps the first thing you notice when you enter the city. But apart from the towering Giralda bell-tower and the Real Alcazár Palace, we also have the Moors to thank for the Baños Arabes in Seville. Hidden away in the Jewish Quarter of the city, Aire de Sevilla is the perfect romantic escape for any couple. Forget the stresses of life and enjoy some quality time with your loved one with an amazing massage before a relaxing dip in the dimly lit pools of the Arabic Baths.
See a flamenco show
Flamenco is an intense, layered dance telling stories of love and strength and the perfect way to spend a romantic evening in Seville. The infectious passion of the dancers and performers will blow you away! With so many authentic flamenco shows in Seville you’ll be spoilt for choice, and combining the show with some delicious tapas or a drink with a view makes for the perfect evening with that special someone.
Why not experience the magic of a flamenco show in the company of a local expert? Our Evening Tapas & Flamenco Tour is the perfect way to learn about the magical art form while devouring some of the city’s most delicious tapas.
Lose yourself in the Santa Cruz neighborhood
If you ask any local where the most romantic places in Seville are found, they’ll almost certainly say the Jewish Quarter of the city. Hidden away in the narrow streets of El Barrio Santa Cruz are a whole host of intimate squares; ornately decorated, gently lit and incredibly peaceful.
If you’re lucky, you may even stumble across a local musician strumming a beautiful flamenco tune on their guitar. Throw caution to the wind and ignite your sense of adventure by getting completely lost in the area, you’ll always stumble across something new – definitely one of our favorite romantic things to do in Seville!
