Best Times to Visit Seville

The best time to visit Seville is from March to May. During these months the temperatures are mild, the rush of tourist traffic hasn't reached summer volume and the hotels tend to offer lower rates (except during special events). Plus, springtime hosts the city's most notable annual festivals like Semana Santa and Feria de Abril. Summers in Seville are some of the warmest in all of Europe, with temperatures often exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This can cause a lot of locals to flee to the nearby beach towns, making the abundance of city tourists more noticeable. In the fall, temperatures cool off and tourist crowds thin out, but rainy season begins. The winter months bring chillier weather and many Sevillanos spend more time indoors.

March-May

Comfortable temperatures, orange blossoms and outdoor markets are enough to compel visitors to venture to Seville in the spring. But it's two of Seville's biggest festivals of the year that draw people to the city. Seville's Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is one of the Roman Catholic community's most culturally significant events, during which parades and other religious and family gatherings fill the streets and plazas. Feria de Abril is a grand six-day fair that combines rides and carnival games, parties and Sevillana dancing shows. 

Key Events:

June-August

Summertime heat in Seville can be unbearable with temperatures averaging in the mid-90s (air conditioning becomes a highly sought after commodity). But the hot weather does have its pluses: Cold beer never tasted better, and nighttime temperatures are great for evenings at rooftop bars and outdoor patios. You may spot fewer Sevillanos as they tend to head out of the city to the region's breezy beaches for some relief from the heat.

Key Events:

September-November

Early September usually brings relief from summer's steamy weather, but beginning in October, Seville enters its rainy season. Visit Seville in the fall and you'll get stuck with quite a bit of mist to accompany your sightseeing. The good news is hotel prices will dip and most of the tourism congestion will thin out during this shoulder season.

Key Events:

December-February

Despite Seville's reputation for sweltering summer weather, the city does get fairly chilly during the winter months. Though temperatures rarely dip to freezing, they can teeter in the 40s and 50s. This is still warmer than conditions in much of Europe, so some European travelers retreat to Seville to take a break from the bitter cold of northern destinations.
