Friendly but really touristy. Up to you...
There are horse-drawn carriages in all the tourist sites of the city, but it is especially in front of the Giralda that the horses gather. Normally count 45 € (official price) for 45 minutes to 1 hour of ride according to a precise route in normal times (for the same service, 50 € during Holy Week, and 95 € per hour during the April feria). If there is not a crowd, do not hesitate to negotiate. In any case, the official prices are clearly displayed around the main sites.

City car parks
Treville, and we do not laugh with the parking bans! The cars are loaded by the grua (the pound), without any compassion: around € 144,50 the fine!
It is best to drop off your belongings at the hotel, then park your car in a guarded place. Count 18 to 23 € per 24 hours. Some car parks offer decreasing prices, if you stay for several days in a row, and some hotels have discounts: do not hesitate to ask for them. They do not accept payment cards, provide cash ... The tourist office issues a card on which the parking lots are indicated.
The most extensive solution.
There is also a free, unguarded, but permanently operating car park at Blas Infante station, behind the Parque de los Principes in Triana.
Bovis and gorrillas
When you park in the street, you will quickly find that there are city agents (The bovis, in red pants and white shirt) ask you a parking fee against a ticket of around € 1. It's completely legal and nicer than parking meters.
In contrast, less pleasant, types known as gorrillas (the caps) do the same job, but quite unofficially and illegally. They offer to keep your car in your absence. In fact, they don't watch anything at all.
In addition, if you refuse to give them a little something, there is a risk that you will find a nice and harmonious stripe on the door stopper or a reminder to pay on your return and donate more than € 1.
