Stansted Airport to Seville Spain

The budget airline Ryanair has recently started a daily service between London Stansted and Seville with a flight time of around 2 hours. The airport, named Aeropuerto San Pablo, is just  7km (4 miles) from the city centre along the A4 Cordoba road. On weekdays there is a  half-hourly bus service between the arrivals terminal and Puerta de Jerez in the city centre with a journey time of around 30 to 40 minutes. This service is reduced at weekends and holidays with only 15 buses each way daily. A typical taxi ride from the airport to the centre costs between 15 and 18 euros, although it is advisable to check with the driver beforehand. Seville is the capital of the Andalucia region in Southern Spain. It is renowned for its fantastic architecture, which includes Islamic, Gothic and Renaissance styles, along with its lively nightlife and famous Feria de Abril (April Fair). It is best to avoid visiting Seville in the summer months – especially July and August – as the heat can be unbearable.

Popular tourist attractions and events in Seville include:

  • Cathedral - This enormous Gothic structure is one of the largest cathedrals in the world. Its construction was started in 1401 and not completed until 1507. The cathedral replaced the 12th century Amohad mosque, of which all that remains is the 90-metre-tall minaret, known as La Giralda tower. There are great views of the city from the top of La Giralda.
  • Alcazar - The Alcazar palace, located south of the cathedral, is one of Seville’s must-see attractions. Constructed by the Moors in the 10th century, it has been added to and altered ever since. The Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella, welcomed back Christopher Columbus after his discovery of the New World in the impressive Salon de Embajadores. Also worth seeing are the Alcazar’s beautiful gardens.
  • Feria de Abril (April Fair) - This is the most spectacular of all Andalucia’s ferias, with six nights of dancing, drinking, eating and music. There are also parades of horses  and carriages through the city every afternoon.
  • Semana Santa (Easter week) - During Semana Santa from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday there are great processions, some lasting more than an hour, through the streets of Seville to the cathedral. Each procession depicts different scenes from the Easter story.
  • Isla Magica - If you are travelling with children you may want to visit the Isla Magica theme park, situated in the north of the city. There are a couple of great roller coasters to try out - El Jaguar and the Anaconda.
