Sevilla in July?

by irvingboy

We are considering a three night stay in Sevilla in mid July. A friend told me that she was there in July and the heat was unbearable (40 C or 100 F). Should we expect it to be that hot, or was her experience rare? The temperature charts say that the average temperature in July is closer to 28 C or 82 F.

Advice? Should we avoid Sevilla and go straight to the mountains or coast?

You friend is right.

You have to bear in mind that the “average temperature” is the result of adding the “average maximum” and the “average minimum” together, and then dividing the total between two.

The average maximum for July is (according to www.weatherbase.com) 35C. Temperatures of up to 38C are not uncommon, especially when the wind blows from the Sahara desert. The highest ever recorded temperature in Seville is 45C.

I would not discourage anyone from visiting Seville, as it is such a beautiful city, but you should definitely prepare for the heat.

I agree totally with eugene.uk, Sevilla in July is HOT, but it is a wonderful city that should'nt be missed. It all depends how you stand the heat, and of course be prepared for it.

Do sightseeing early in the morning and late in the afternoon and hold your siesta in between.

Exactly, use the early hours in the morning, and then scape to your hotel until the sun sets...that`s why people have dinner so late, and you can find many things open until very late.

Remember: "If it is cold...walk faster"...and vice-versa.

Yes, there won't be any stores open during the middle of the day anyway although you can go to the major tourist sites during that time. You'll likely be wiped out after a morning of running around anyway and a cool shower or dip in the pool and a nap is a great way to spend the hottest hours of the day. I was there in May 2005 and it was in the mid-30s most days and did reach 40+ on the one day we took a day trip to Cordoba.

Well, at least you'll be able to experience the "real" Sevilla. I've only been to Sevilla twice: once in June it was 43C, another in July it was about 40C. There are some beautiful things to see in that city, though, despite the heat. You now know why virtually nothing happens during the afternoon and things come alive at night. Night being after 10PM or so.

We were there in July'07.
We LOVED it! However we took siesta every day.
It is actually quite nice to stroll the streets on the morning. Take siesta after lunch and get all ready for the evening stroll + dinner.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

Visit Alcazar - I don't want...

by Ruthy2001

Visit Alcazar - I don't want to write much about it as it is a very visual place but safe to say it is a very beautiful bulidng with gorgeous grounds and water features - sounding very like a guide book now so going to stop.

Noisy colours

by Joyce_HK

Spanish love colour; especially southern Spanish! Everything related to Seville is full of details and noisy colours! One of my fondest memory was when we visited the Sunday flea market to pick a second-hand flamenco dress. We found our outfit in the sea of colours and ruffles......

Holy Week is Sacred

by lotafro

The smell of incense impregnates throughout the Sevillian streets, the milk-toasts don’t stay in the shop windows of the bars and restaurants for too long and, each citizen, prays to the clouds in the sky that at least, during these seven days, to wait for their time to cry. Waiting all year long for the rain to steal away the hopes of so many kids and adults.
From Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, approximately 57 brotherhoods leave from their chapels. Plaza de la Campana (Bell Square), Sierpes Street, San Francisco Square, Constitution Avenue, this is the Official Route that the processions must continue once they make way to their destination: the Cathedral of Seville.
When the processions of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary parade though Seville a lot of people feel their souls shudder. The bearers, covered by the big drapings that hang from the fraternity’s religious floats, carry it over their shoulders, with love, devotion and tenderness, and a calm and rhythmic march.
The penitents hand out candy while propping the hood that covers their face with the palm of their hands. The music, like a backdrop, moves with the dance of the float as it captivates the crowd.
One of the most awaited days is Holy Friday, also known as madrugá (dawn), where prominent fraternities come out like El Silencio (The Silence), which in his first image represents Jesus bearing the cross on his shoulder, in an inverse position as the usual one; and the canopy float, which shows Our Lady of Concepcion accompanied by Saint John, under a canopy. This Brotherhood leaves the mark of its silence as it advances through the streets of Seville.
Also on this day, many wait for the arrival of Jesús del Gran Poder (Almighty Jesus); with this image of the Lord: golden, illuminated by lanterns of gold-plated silver. And how about Esperanza Macarena Brotherhood’s float, that wins your heart over with its presence alone!; or the one of Esperanza of Triana, that makes you cry when its bearers sway her by the bridge of Seville that her name...

Agua de Sevilla

by betis1

It runs through the river between el centro and Triana, but it also is a popular drink offered at a few bars here. Try this instead of sangria if you're feeling bold. Don't finish the night up with a pitcher of it, though, as it packs a punch. Served in jaras (pitcher) or media jaras (half-pitchers) be prepared to pay a hefty price - anywhere from 20-30€ for a pitcher. Here's what's in it (it may vary a bit from place to place):

-zumo de piña (pineapple juice)
-champagne
-whisky
-ron (rum)
-Licor 43
-Cointreau
-nata (whipped cream: on top and then stirred in)
-azucar moreno (brown sugar)
hielo (ice)

Jardines de Murillos

by swedishanna

The gardens, Jardines de Murillos, used to once belong to the Alcazar gardens until Isabelle II gave this part to the people of the city.
It stretches along side the Alcazar wall, from the University to the edge of Santa Cruz, and is a lovely spot for a small walk or to just sit on one of the benches and enjoy the orange blossom. Filled with palm trees, flowering bushes, familes and dog walkers, this is a peaceful part of the city despite it being parallel to one of the main roads in the city.
