Located in southern Spain, Seville Airport lies just ten kilometres north-east of the capital city Seville, between the city and the next large town Rinconada. The airport is locally referred to as San Pablo Airport.
The airport’s beautiful design draws on Spain’s turbulent past and displays three cultural influences: Spain’s Arab connections, the major agricultural produce derived from orange tree plantations and the palace, an homage to the Royal house of Spain. Arriving passengers are reminded of an orange grove, when they first see the airport.

Seville has many attractions to offer, and if you are planning to see a fair bit of Andalucia, it is worth considering hiring a car for a few days, so not to miss out on the many attractions in the region. Seville is a welcoming, friendly city and many parts are pedestrianized for the best access to shopping, leisure facilities, restaurants, nightclubs and bars.
The Guadalquivir River traverses the city. Historic Seville charms with winding lanes, secret court yards, romantic gardens, wide plazas and ancient streets lined by historic monuments spanning several centuries. From Santa Justa train station you can easily explore Andalusia’s other cities and towns or travel across Spain in comfort and style. The airport bus also stop at the train station.
Day trips into the foothills of the Sierra Morena in the north or the Sierra sur mountains in the south are also popular leisure time pursuits. There are many paths and safe hiking trails provided for hikers and mountain bikers to enjoy.
The Guadalquivir River has not only provided the Seville region with fertile agricultural lands but has also given it a waterway that stretches from the sea for more than 70 kilometres inland to the city of Seville.
With a rented car you can explore the historic towns and cities that lie along the banks of the river, although some journeys are possible by coach.
It is an unforgettable trip into Spain’s rich heritage, with architecture that displays Arab and Jewish influences alongside traditional Spanish architecture.
