Climate and Weather
In Seville, the climate is characterized by rather cool winters, dry and prolonged summers (from May to October) and very sunny.
The most favorable travel times to explore Seville are the spring orfall. We enjoy pleasant temperatures, without the crowds. In spring, pay attention to the dates of festivals (Holy Week) and fairs (see the cultural agenda of Seville.

Health and security
Delinquency is a reality, but it is not a reason to sink into paranoid! Lock your car with the key, park it in a guarded car park, leave nothing in evidence, remove the rear shelf to show that there is nothing in the trunk, unhook your GPS, avoid showing your smartphone, so many common sense precautions ...
In hotels, but also in bars, restaurants, taxis, there is a book of complaints (el libro de quejas) targeted by the agents of the repression of fraud of the town hall. In the event of a dispute, ask for this document and the problem will be resolved ... At the restaurant, always check your note carefully: additions can sometimes slip in, as well as calculation errors!
In the street, avoid the gypsies who pretend to read the lines to you while a sidekick nimbly picks your pockets!
