Before we delve into the best restaurants in Seville, I would like to share a little of the fascinating Seville history.

Travel to Seville couldn’t be easier. With links to the main European cities by air, road, train or sea., the choice is boundless.

The Romans governed Spain for six centuries. You can still visit Italica, the site, near Seville, of the first Roman colony.

The Romans built aqueducts and long straight roads linking major towns. You can find many of the artefacts from this period in the Archaeological Museum.

But, it was the Muslim civilisation that had the greatest impact on Seville. They occupied Seville  for more than 500 years. From 711 A.D. to 1248 A.D. until King Fernando conquered the city.

You can see a statue of King Fernando in Plaza nueva.

Some of the city’s most magnificent buildings stand as a legacy to this era, including the Torre del Oro, Torre de Plata, Giralda, Patio de los Naranjos, and the area of Triana.

By night, the river brings new energy to the city. The lights illuminate the bars and nightclubs along the riverbank and in the neighbouring district of Arenal.
