Seville, or Sevilla to the locals, is a beautiful city in the South of Spain, and according to a large majority (including me), it is one of the most vibrant cities in the country.

Known for being the birthplace of Flamenco and home to the world’s third-largest cathedral, you can bet your bottom dollar that you’ll never run out of things to do in the Andalusia capital.

And because there’s so much to see and do, it can get quite crowded. For independent travelers like me, you might be looking for somewhere to escape the crowds and discover some hidden gems in Seville.

Those looking for authenticity and uniqueness should look no further. In this guide, I’ve listed some of my favorite hidden secrets, so you can get off the beaten path in Seville.

Hidden Gems in Seville

Are you ready to explore the backstreets, secret corners and less-visited spots in Seville? Then you’re going to love these Seville hidden gems!

1. Iglesia de Santa Marina (c/ San Luis, 39)

Seville is a very old city, dating from the times of the Roman Empire.

As a consequence, it is full of monuments, buildings, and structures that have been there for centuries. The Iglesia de Santa Marina is one of them.

It was built in the 14th century using the base of an old mosque and it has survived earthquakes, fires, and wars.

I am always impressed by the simplicity of its design and, at the same time, the personality it has. If you get there and you see that the doors are closed, have a drink at some of the bars around and wait until it is mass time.

While most tourists think of Seville Cathedral when they think of Seville, this small church is a must-see hidden gem of Seville not to be missed.

2. Plaza del Cabildo

The Plaza del Cabildo is probably the only circled square (plaza) in Seville.

It is just 2 minutes away from the Cathedral but many miss it because you need to enter through a passage at the Avenida de la Constitución. Look for the entrance while you walk towards the Cathedral.

The action takes place on Sundays when people from everywhere gather to sell, buy, and exchange collectors (stamps, coins, stickers…). Even if you cannot make it on a Sunday, the detour will be worthwhile.

3. Convento de San Leandro (Plaza de San Ildefonso, 1)
