When is the best weather in Seville?

Seville can be explored all year round, with perhaps the exception being July and August when temperatures soar to over 36 ºC (97 ºF) making it one of the hottest places in all of Europe. Unless you really enjoy the sweltering heat or have no other options, avoid those months.

But if for whatever reason you end up visiting in summer (or anytime from April to October for that matter), booking a hotel with a rooftop pool is always a great idea. Check out here the best hotels with pools in Seville.

Otherwise, Seville has quite comfortable weather the rest of the year. The winters are much less crowded and the temperatures are warmer than in most other places in continental Europe.

The spring and fall seasons are some of the best times to visit the city with temperatures in the low 20’s ºC (low 70’s ºF). Although rain is not much of an issue throughout the year, it can be said that fall is wetter than spring. From May to September there is hardly any rain.

When to visit to avoid crowds

The winter months are the best time to visit if you want to avoid crowds. The Seville Cathedral and Alcazar de Sevilla are among some of the top things to do in Seville. And in the high season they get extremely packed.

If you want to climb to the top of the Giralda tower in the cathedral for example, you can often expect to wait in line for well over an hour. And that’s already after you have waited to get into the cathedral itself! So visiting in the cooler months is a great time if you want to avoid crowds.

The winter months are also when you can expect to find the best hotel deals.

We think February is the best winter month to visit since it is a little warmer and has less rain. March is also a very good time for the same reasons.

April, May, September & October are the busiest months to visit Seville. July is not busy, but for good reason – it is crazy hot.

Holy Week: March 24 - 31 2024

Holy Week (Semana Santa in Spanish) is a week long celebration in preparation for Easter Sunday. All of Andalusia and particularly Seville take this week very seriously and people prepare for it all year.

Expect to see processions featuring lots of floats with carved figures, people dressed up in white clothing that looks eerily like the Ku-Klux-Klan and lots of crying. If this doesn’t particularly interest you, then avoid visiting during these days as the city gets extremely busy.

Feria de Abril: April 14 - 20 2024

The Feria de Abril (April Fair) dates back to 1847 when it began as a livestock fair. Since then, it has developed into the biggest party in the south of Spain, covering an area of 1.2 square kilometers and featuring over 1000 casetas (tents).

During the fair, all of the Andalusian stereotypes and cliches are in full swing – flamenco dancing, sherry drinking, bullfighting and of course, the donning of traditional clothing and costumes.

When to visit - monthly breakdown

  • January - High temperature is around 16 ºC or 61 ºF (coldest month of the year) and there are about 6 rainy days in the month. It is however, the least visited month of the year.
  • February - High temperature is around 18 ºC (64 ºF) and there are about 5 rainy days in the month. It is just slightly more busy than January. It’s probably the best winter month to visit.
  • March - High temperatures average 21 ºC (70 ºF) and there is a little less rain than in February. Many gardens start to bloom. Tourists number start to raise, especially if Holy Week is going on at the end of the month.
  • April - Comfortable temperatures of around 22 ºC (72 ºF) and more rain (6 days in the month). Holy Week’s easter celebrations are usually underway. Avoid those dates if you are not interested in seeing the processions. Also, Seville’s largest festival, the Feria de Abril, begins. It’s a 6 day festival of partying, dancing and celebrating local culture.
  • May - Temperatures get to 26 ºC (79 ºF) and the spring rain has normally come to an end (only 3 days rain on average). The gardens are in full bloom. It is one of the busiest months to visit, but there is a reason for it – the weather is as perfect as it gets.
  • June - Temperatures get to 32 ºC (90 ºF) and it is pretty dry. Less crowded than April and May.
  • July - Temperates get to a blazing 36 ºC (97 ºF) and it is the driest month of the year. This is the summer low-season. Unless you like it real hot, avoid this month.
  • August - Average high temperatures get to 35 ºC (95 ºF) and it is dry. Tourist numbers pick up slightly from July because of August summer holidays. For that reason, July would be better than August.
  • September - Temperatures start to drop from the sweltering months of July and August but still get to around 32 ºC (90 ºF). There is hardly any rain and it is one of the busiest months of the year.
  • October - Temperatures get up to 26 ºC (79 ºF) but there can be more rain (average 5 days of the month). This is the busiest month of the entire year but it is also a month with some of the best weather.
  • November - Temperates reach 20 ºC (68 ºF) and there is considerably less tourists than in October. It is slightly wetter than October as well.
  • December - Temperates reach 17 ºC (63 ºF) but it is the wettest month of the year, averaging 6 days of rain. The number of tourists is down significantly since October.
