The peak season in Seville is the summer season in July and August. It is extremely hot with nearly 11 hours of daylight on an average, and the mercury soars in excess of 100 deg F. The city celebrates its 400 year old festival of Vela de Santa Ana every year during 21-26 July. In order to enjoy the city’s festivities during this time, it would be best to book your tickets early to avoid last minute rush and inflated prices. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, it would be best to come here during the winter season in November to February. It would be colder and damper at about 64-76 deg F but it would still be much warmer than northern Europe and that you would get to enjoy Christmas and New Year Celebrations.
