Seville from on high is bewitching!
From whichever direction you admire it, Seville has a very special charm, especially when seen from high up! Take a deep breath and come with us up to the top viewpoints in the city or relax on its unique terraces. Seville’s stunning panoramic views are waiting for you. Ready?
Viewpoints you mustn’t leave Seville without seeing
• La Giralda: Seville Cathedral’s bell tower is one of the most striking sights on the city’s skyline and one of its oldest and best viewpoints! From La Giralda you can take in the whole city in 360º. The only downside is that you can’t see La Giralda itself!
• Torre del Oro: the symbol of Seville par excellence, this 11th-century tower houses the Seville Naval Museum and boasts stunning views over the Cathedral and the River Guadalquivir from its battlements.
• Metropol Parasol: hated by some, loved by others, the “Seville Mushrooms” or “Incarnation’s Mushrooms” certainly feature some unique architecture. Over 28 metres high, they include a 250-metre walkway offering amazing views over different areas of the city. There are maps and telescopes to help you get your bearings.
• Torre Seville: at 180 metres high (twice the height of La Giralda), the city’s first skyscraper boasts breathtaking views over the city from the clouds. Vital for photography lovers and Instagrammers!
• Cathedral Rooftop: climbing up out onto the rooftop is a unique experience. You can enjoy views of Seville Cathedral itself plus a panoramic sweep of the city. Rooftop access is only available through a booked guided tour.
Terraces with typical Sevillian charm
• Tempa Museo: the terrace of the Tempa Museo in Seville apartments is well worth bearing in mind if you want to enjoy the best of the city from on high! Its rooftop features a spa pool, chill out area, loungers and everything you need to unwind and freshen up. Pure relaxation in the heart of Seville!
• Roof ¡Estamos arriba! housed in the Casa Romana, an 18th-century building in the city’s old town laid out in ancient Roman style, is an excellent restaurant with stunning views and fantastic drinks in an unbeatable setting, with great background music and a jacuzzi to boot! Their Pasion in de roof cocktail, with Champaign, passion fruit, brown sugar and edible gold is a must.
• Terraza Puerto de Cuba: it might not be high up, but it still has amazing views over the Triana neighbourhood. This exotic terrace at the end of the legendary Calle Betis, next to Plaza Puerto de Cuba, is perfect for an after-work drink in good company.
• Mariatrifulca: a restaurant famous for its delicious food and marvellous terrace. Dinner overlooking the River Guadalquivir, Triana Bridge and the city’s most emblematic buildings isn’t something you can do every day!
• Muelle New York: this pub by the River Guadalquivir is on the Muelle de Nueva York, built in 1905, and is popular with young Sevillians and visitors alike. The views over the Puente de San Telmo and Los Remedios neighbourhood make it the ideal place for having a drink to unwind.
• El Corte Inglés in Plaza Duque: its terrace offers panoramic views over Seville, and its Gourmet Experience includes showcookings, tastings, excellent drinks and much more offered by the leading names in the restaurant industry. Foodies look no further!
