Cathedral de Sevilla
Seville is home to Catedral de Sevilla, the largest Gothic church in the world. It also ranks as the world’s 3rd largest church. I highly recommend visiting this cathedral, as well as the La Giralda Tower. Tickets can be purchased in advance, and it’s a must unless you’d prefer to view it from the outside only… The website for tickets is here.
The Real Alcazar
If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, then you should visit the Real Alcazar! It is like stepping into the city of Dorne!
Seville became home to a lot of the film scenes of Game of Thrones as the seasons went on. The Real Alcazar Seville is the best place to visit alone! It is one of the oldest palaces in the world that is still in use as a residence. You can purchase tickets online, and skip the line waving to all the suckers who hadn’t research ahead. Tickets are available for all different types of tours. Walk the inner halls of this incredible historic landmark, and have lunch in the magnificent gardens.

Transportation to Seville
If you are arriving by plane, you can take the bus from the airport to Seville city center. The bus takes about 35 minutes, depending on traffic. This bus runs 365 days a year and costs 4 euro for a single ticket, and 6 euro for a return ticket. The website for the bus can be found here. I have decided to take the bus and I felt quite comfortable. The atmosphere is friendly and I blended in. Good transport means for solo female travelers.
Taking the train? I found that it was a good experience when I traveled from Valencia to Madrid.
Traveling to Exotic Places in Spain?
Where can I go from Seville?
Though I believe that Seville is one of the best places in Spain to travel alone, Granada is another right choice. It is approx—four hours by train and about 2 1/2 by car, with no traffic. Granada is quite extraordinary, and given the distance to Seville, I wouldn’t suggest it for a day trip. I would plan at least three nights and four days for Granada.
