(Leer en español) The cruises in Seville are coming and this year there are novelties. The tourists that are going to arrive in cruise, will find the Passengers Terminal in the Delicias dock. The new Terminal is a rare building that will be use for the first time this year with the Corinthian cruise arrival in March.
The cruises in Seville continue acquiring importance regarding both the people number and their enjoyment. Seville, Guadalquivir and its riverside are moderns and prepared to welcome visitors. They will spend wonderful days while the ship is moored in the harbor. In 2016, more than 21,000 cruise passengers came to Seville, a significant increase compared with the previous year. In 2017, it is expected to increase the total visitors number again, because of the facilities that represent the new Passengers Terminal.
The Passengers Terminal at Delicias Dock just opened over 1 km² usable and fully equiped. The sustainability of the project is the highlight, whose structure has been built recycling cargo containers. The building should be very functional for Seville, as well as ships welcoming arrival, exhibitions and events will be there in seasons without cruises.
The cruises Terminal in Seville is located in a unique setting, integrated in the María Luisa Park, co-located with some attractions in the city. It is next to the Aquarium of Seville, a place to enjoy the sea and river variety, with more than 400 species distributed in 35 aquariums and a distance of 700 meters.
Nearby, visitors can see important places of Seville, such as the San Jorge Castle, the Ceramics Museum or the Sewing House of Queen, now the Tourist Office. Besides the visitors of the cruises in Seville have time to venture into the streets of the city to visit more monuments, the Cathedral, the Giralda, its people, its bars and gastronomy.
Gastronomy and bars in Seville
The Cathedral area is amazing for exploring the cuisine of Seville. The bars on the Mateos Gago Street are a benchmark as far as tapas is concerned. Jamón (iberian ham), chacinas (sausages), pescaito (fried fish) and tapas with a modern twist in its preparation and presentation. It is a meeting point between Sevillian and tourists, allowing visitors to learn the culture and gastronomic tradition of the city. Is the same at Santa Cruz district.
If we look at the decor, tradition in Seville is markedly taurine and you can see it in the bars at Maestranza bullring. There is no better place to soak up the style. Pepe Hillo and Baratillo are mythical bars in the world of bullfighting in Seville and you can visit them to feel like a Sevillian during the cruise stay in Seville.
