As the Sevillians say: “Sevilla tiene una cosa que solo tiene Sevilla” (Seville has one thing that only Seville has). This city has an unparalleled appeal. If Seville during the day is a unique experience, at night it takes on a magical atmosphere. Let us imagine ourselves for a moment in the centre of this city, surrounded by the scent of orange blossom mixed with the sound of a Spanish guitar while we contemplate one of its sunsets. This is an experience we should all live at least once in our lives.
The Triana neighbourhood stands out for its impressive history and charm. It is the cradle of Seville, the mother of Andalusian art and the origin of flamenco. Visiting Triana means entering the heart of the city and being surrounded by its purest customs. To drink in Seville’s culture, all you have to do is stroll through its small streets, have some tapas in a bar on Calle Betis or sit on a bench overlooking the river. Any of these plans allows us to enjoy the best spectacle in Triana: the sunset.
One of the best places to see the sunset is the Puente de Isabel II, better known as the Puente de Triana. Whether walking along the bridge itself or sitting on the small viewpoint to the right of the bridge, you can enjoy this beautiful sunset.
The Plaza de España represents the majesty of Seville. It is located in the Maria Luisa Park and was part of the famous Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. The intention was to build a plaza-palace that was different from all the others, and they succeeded. It is an immense monument considered one of the most visited tourist attractions in Andalusia.
The sunset in the Plaza de España is one of the most romantic in the city. A recommended experience is to rent a boat to cruise the canal while watching the sunset.
Seville’s most famous landmark without a doubt is the Giralda. This monument represents a mixture of centuries of history. Its architecture reflects the culture of the different inhabitants that have passed through Seville. For this reason, it has become a unique element of the city that we cannot miss.
If we want to see the Giraldillo shining, the highest point of the Giralda, we must observe it from a parallel perspective. Seville is full of wonderful hotels with upper terraces where we can have a drink whether we are hotel guests or not. From there we will be able to see a splendid sunset. However, we must bear in mind that it is a privileged place, so we must make sure we go there soon to get a seat.
Seville’s Barqueta Bridge is one of the city’s most famous engineering works due to its elegant design. Its great white arch crosses the Guadalquivir River. Its structure together with its reflection in the water reminds peace and simplicity. For this reason, it is one of the strategic points from which to contemplate the sunset.
There is nothing like sitting on the banks of the river and watching how the sun shines through its metal rods. It’s an experience that will bring serenity and tranquillity if you need to disconnect from the stressful routine for a moment. So, going alone won’t be a problem! It is a place that allows us to reflect as well as relax.
Torre del Oro is another emblem of the city of Seville. Although it does not stand out for its height, it does stand out for its beauty. It is said that its name comes from the reflection of the top of the tower in the river. This is due to the material of which it is made. It can therefore be known as the light of Seville.
The sunset in this place has a peculiar charm. If we stand on the San Telmo Bridge, we will have the image of Seville in its pure state: the Torre del Oro illuminated by the orange sun with the Real Maestranza in the background.
It is advisable to buy a ticket for a boat trip on the river during sunset. It is an incredible experience that allows us to enjoy the moment from another perspective.
