Practical & additional information


Seville has a mild Mediterranean climate, with warm, sunny summers and cool, mild, winters. The hottest months are July and August, with temperatures sometimes reaching a high of 99°F (37°C). Temperatures are, however, sometimes modified by cool sea breezes - a relief at the height of summer. Spring is perhaps the best time to travel to Seville as temperatures are more moderate, though still warm.
