Temperatures soar the mercury level during the late morning and continue till late afternoon. Surely, you would not like to walk around the city during those hours. Plan your sightseeing around the city in a way that you can be engaged in activities indoor during the hottest hours. Go out and see the city outdoors during night. Since like all other European cities, Seville has late sunsets, you could easily go sightseeing during late hours of the day. Sunsets can be as late as 9.45 PM. For the hotter hours of the day, you could visit the churches, and museums. The high-roofed architectures will naturally keep you cool once you are inside.

While you plan sightseeing during the cooler hours of the day, spend the hotter hours in a bar or pub. You could choose to get into the modern bars of today, but I recommend you to check out some of the historic bars of Seville. El Rinconcillo, situated a little outside the city, is the oldest bar of Seville. The bar dates back to 1670! Most travel guidebooks makes it a mandatory place to check out while in Seville. Some of the other bars that have been serving people since 200-300 odd years are Casa Ricardo, Casa Morales, Alvaro Peregil La Goleta, and Bodeguita Romero. Order some beer and tapas, typically famous of Spain, and chill out indoors.

If you are panting and sweating in the heat of Seville, hit the beach. Seville is an inland city, but it is close to the Mediterranean Sea. There are quite a few beaches at just about 1.5 to 2 hours distance from Seville. Some of the closest beaches to Seville are Matalascañas, Huelva; Punta Umbría, Huelva; La Fontanilla, Cadiz; Bolonia, Cadiz. Get into the waters and be unaffected by the heat.
