Visitors love this part of Spain because of the friendly climate characterized by mild winters and sunny intervals throughout the year. The temperatures are especially pleasant during the season and you will find the time you spend here to be amazing. It is a monumental city majorly and excursions within it will take you to some of the most amazing areas within it.

Santipoce: you will find Italica roman ruins within the town a few kilometers from Seville. Of particular interest is the Amphitheater and dwelling houses. There are also wonderful mosaics, statutes within the archaeological museum and the palace also found here.

Other features worth visiting in Santipoce include the gothic monastery and the Pickman Museum where you can witness the ceramic production and behold the exhibition of some of the most historic pieces of the region.

Carmona: the town is nothing short of picturesque and has impressive fortifications. It was initially Carthaginian but that changed with the settlement of Romans here. The town walls tell much of the history of the town and you can also take the time to check out the Alcazar palace situated here. The palace is the most outstanding feature of the town and cannot be missed.

Ecija: the tour through Seville will also take you to Ecija bordering the provinces of Cordoba and Seville. It is a traditional manorial kind of town with beautiful palaces. The Moorish influence can be enjoyed at the Arabian baths found here and the town walls which include the amazing doors of Puerta Cerrada and Puerta del Puente.

The town is commonly referred to as the town of tower mainly because of the numerous towers found here. The towers come in great harmony forming a skyline that is quite impressive. The 11 towers of Pescadera and Alberrana Merino are the most attractive and also the Santa Maria archeological museum and the Santiago Iglesia church.

Osuna: this is another wonderful town within Seville that is worth paying a visit. It is a very old dukedom and the Dukes of Osuna pantheon is the greatest treasure of the area. It is several kilometers from Seville but definitely worth spending some time in.

Seville has many other monuments each of which has a great story behind it and some are basically sights to behold. You will find the work on the monuments impressive with some of the monuments still in great shape despite their age.
