The life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, famous for her portraits, has been reinvented in a small exhibition that will be touring the capital cities of Andalusia by local artist, Fausto Velázquez, who was fascinated by her iconic face, as well as her dramatic and turbulent life. The 22 portraits are on display at the Sala del Apeadero, located in the Town Hall (Plaza San Francisco) until the 26th of June from 10.00am – 1.30pm (Monday to Friday) and Saturdays in the morning only.

Wind down with a sunset drink– and a view!

During June the weather is just about warm enough for it not to get cold in the evenings, so why not make use of this mild climate by settling into one of Seville’s roof terrace bars for an evening drink. The weather is pleasant, the views are great, and the vibe is perfect for passing the early summer evenings by with a glass of vino blanco or a cool cerveza or even perhaps a cocktail or two. The rooftop bar at Hotel Doña Maria, located near the Cathedral, is a favorite of ours!

Relax by the river

During the month of June the weather is warming up so if you need to escape the heat of the afternoon, the riverside parks make a great place to relax. The Jardines de Chapina near Seville’s Plaza de Armas bus station is filled with locals and visitors alike, retreating in the shade of the trees and enjoying the cool breeze coming off the river.

Seville’s gastronomic market,Mercado Lonja del Barraco, is on the edge of the park, so when you are ready for a bite to eat and a refreshing drink, head inside and visit the food stalls that serve everything from simply prepared seafood to hearty local tapas.

One of the best things to do in Seville is June is take to the banks of the river and enjoy the scenery!

See a bullfight

Bulls and bullfighting are two things which are icons of Andalusia, though contrary to popular belief outside of Spain, bullfighting doesn’t happen on a regular basis. In Seville, the majority of the bullfights happen around the time of the Feria de Abril, but until mid-June there are a smattering of bullfights before the matadors take a break for the summer.

Bullfights will take place at the Plaza de Toros on Sunday the 5th and 12th of June, and if you want to watch the spectacle which is synonymous with culture in Andalusia, make sure you book your tickets in advance.
