May is one of the favourite months of the year in Seville, both for visitors and locals. Spring is in full bloom. Every corner of the city smells of orange blossom, giving the streets a refreshing look with the white buds flowering on the many orange trees, their sweet scent filling the air.
The weather is ideal during this month, with long sunny days and pleasant evenings.
The city also hosts many activities at this time of year, with museums to visit, concerts to attend, plays to enjoy, evening tours to take and so much more.
In addition, the 1st of May is Labour Day, creating an ideal bank holiday and making the days prior perfect for visiting the city.
The 30th is San Fernando, patron saint of the city, which coincides with the date of his death in the Alcazar in 1252. This day sees a solemn and traditional ceremony take place in the Cathedral, in the Virgen de los Reyes Chapel, where he is buried. During mass, the urn remains open with the incorrupt body of the saint within. Once the event ends, attendees can see and venerate the saint.
It is a great season to enjoy fully and the wonderful weather allows you to grant yourself certain pleasures such as taking a dip in a pool with incredible views while you enjoy a cocktail, or taking a leisurely walk through Seville’s streets and alleys. For this reason, we recommend a luxurious hotel in Seville, which will help you enjoy every detail.
