View from the Setas de Sevilla (Metropol Parasol), Seville, Spain
The historical centre of Seville, the largest autonomous community and capital city of Andalusia, is packed full of remnants of the past, from grand churches to Moorish palaces. And it comes as no surprise that Seville's narrow, winding streets have so much culture to explore - in the 16th century Seville was the mercantile centre of the western world, and its river was the main maritime route for Atlantic traffic for more than 200 years.
It's also one of the warmest cities in Europe during winter, with year-round mild temperatures and an average of 80 days of rain, so you're likely to have blue skies while you explore the city's three UNESCO Heritage sites: The Royal Alcazar, Seville Cathedral and the Giralda, and General Archive of the Indies. Whether it's for history, culture, good weather or delicious tapas, a trip to Seville has so much to offer.
