There are many activities to do in Seville, but where can you go when you are looking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city? The numerous terraces that the capital has to offer immerse ordinary people in a sea of options to be weighed up depending on what they are looking for at any given time.
Seville’s climate is a strong incentive for users. When dusk falls, both Sevillians and visitors look for an open-air place where they can enjoy themselves in company.
Many of these spaces offer the client a unique experience that stands out from the rest, but how do they achieve this? Each establishment looks for a factor that makes it stand out. It can have, among other things, privileged views of the city, provide the place with a characteristic distribution of the furniture, have a swimming pool, be recognised as a ‘chillout’ place, host the best parties and events, carry out complementary activities that stand out from the services normally offered or even offer the opportunity to taste from the most traditional to the most atypical gastronomic menu.
