Andalusia’s capital is Seville. It is a very accessible city, and it can be reached by land, sea, or air. Also has a train station and an airport, as well as being very well connected by the road system of Spain and Andalusia. It is also important to mention that it has “el río Guadalquivir”, the only navigable river in Spain. Seville offers us all these options because of how big it is, what it represents and the thousands and thousands of people who come or visit it every day. Whichever means of transport you choose; we are waiting for you here with open arms.
Finally, if you have decided to get by plane, you will land at Seville’s International Airport (San Pablo). It is located about 3 km from the city. It is a leading airport in Europe, but it is not too big so you can easily get around on foot.
This airport was designed by the famous architect Rafael Moneo. Its design immerses us in the Sevillian, and Andalusian culture based mainly on three characteristic components of this land: la Mezquita, el Palacio, and the orange trees. As soon as we enter, we are greeted by an orange grove. Upon entering, we find a very spacious hall with blue tones caused by the glazed tiles, accompanied by an arch supported by vaults.
This airport has a very large parking with access to the arrivals and departures areas, as well as offering all types of short, medium, and long-distance parking.
The airport is very well connected to the city, and if you do not have your own car or a rented car, you can take a bus and get there in just half an hour. You can find the bus timetables here.
The option of getting to Seville by train is very good as it is a fast and safe means of transport, in addition, Seville’s train station (Santa Justa) is located within the core of the city. This station has long and medium-distance routes, using the conventional network and the Spanish high-speed network, to travel from anywhere in Spain in record time.
This station was inaugurated in 1991 and it is the third station in Spain with the highest volume of passengers after Madrid and Barcelona. It is a big station, covering some 80,000 square metres. There are also three parking areas, two at the sides and one at the front. They offer very useful services such as car hire and tourist and hotel information points inside the station.
