Car hire in Seville
Hiring a car in Seville
Seville is one of Spain's most popular inland destinations, partly because of its reputation as one of the best cities for food in the nation. This is even more impressive, as Spain is well-known for its culinary delights.
The Alameda district is one of Seville's most popular destinations for food and drink, with its many bars and restaurants offering outside seating areas. The city is also rich with historical architecture, with one of its most famous sights being Las Setas, which translates as the mushrooms. This structure is a stunning example of contemporary architecture, and is famous across Spain.

Where to go
Seville is well-known for its stunning contemporary and historical architecture, so you'll want to make sure that you get to see as many sights as possible, including Las Setas, La Giralda and the Alcázar Palace.
In addition, its shopping is a true delight for anyone who loves some retail therapy, offering everything from high street stores to vintage boutiques. In fact, the markets are one of the main highlights, selling almost anything, including handmade leather goods, jewellery, clothes and souvenirs.
You can also find some of Seville's top bars and restaurants hidden down side streets, in the main squares and even in what first might seem like someone's home. If you have the time, then it pays to go exploring, as you really will find some hidden gems.
Just an hour south of Seville you can find Doñana National Park, a natural reserve in Andalusia. As well as the great variety of ecosystems, you can see a large amount of wildlife, including thousands of European and African migratory birds, fallow deer, Spanish red deer, wild boars, European badgers, Egyptian mongooses, and endangered species, such as the Spanish imperial eagle and the Iberian lynx.
If you're looking to visit the coast, then in just over an hour you can reach Mazagon, which has a variety of stunning beaches. Although it caters for tourists, this area is much less developed than the more well-known tourist destinations in Spain.
To travel a bit further and take in even more of Spain's stunning towns and cities, you have a world of choices not too far from Seville.
Just over an hour north-east of Seville you'll reach Córdoba, a city famed for its stunning architecture.
Mezquita de Córdoba was originally a mosque, but was paired with a cathedral in 1236 as the city rulers deemed it too beautiful to tear down. This unique mosque-cathedral is now considered one of the most beautiful places of worship in all of Spain.
Two hours south-east from Seville is Malaga, one of Spain's top tourist destinations. This area in the Costa del Sol is known for its stunning beaches, as well as its beautiful architecture.
