From the Rooftops of Seville

Summary

Get a unique perspective of Seville on a 2-hour walking tour across its roof tops! See the romantic and picturesque sites of the city, with spectacular views of the cathedral, old city wall, Alcazar, bell towers of more than 100 churches, and more.

Look over the skyline of Seville to see parks and streets below, all from the top of emblematic buildings. This creative walking tour offers that and more, as a guide takes you on an adventure with panoramic views from the city’s rooftops, providing sights that you just can’t see from the street.

The route has been especially designed to take you to the rooftop terraces with the most spectacular views.

    We did the rooftop tour with Frederico today and it was great! We saw beautiful views over the city and learned some lovely facts and history about Seville that you wouldn’t otherwise know. Fred was really friendly and insightful - the perfect tour guide! We’d recommend this for an alternative view of Seville!

    This two-hour tour was easy walking and provided a nice overview of the city. We were able to see many of the wonderful locations in Seville from the three rooftops visited during the tour, and we were given a nice historical and cultural synopsis as we walked between the rooftop sites. It is well worth taking the tour just to skip the line at the Metropol Parasol, which is a fabulous landmark in and of itself and which provides wonderful views of the city.
