How to arrive

We always have to mention the Universal Exposition of 1992 as the inflexion point from which Seville became one of Spain’s cities with the best communications in all means of transportation. The Expo of ’92 celebration in our city sped up the dive into modernity, with construction and infrastructure. This includes the first road bypass in the city (the SE30) that now, two decades later, is being completed with a second round, the SE40.

Also, in 1992 the new terminal in the San Pablo International Airport was finished. This addition, created by Rafael Moneo, has allowed Seville to receive almost eight million foreign visitors, people from other Spanish cities and people from different European cities. Another gate of the city is the Santa Justa Station, a magnificent building made by Architects from Seville, Cruz and Ortiz that has become a big reference for travelers.

  By Road

Seville is joined to Madrid through the A-4, one of the six radial highways that connect the Iberian Peninsula centre with the cities and provinces in the coast. The A-4 continues to the city of Jerez and Cádiz.

Furthermore, you can arrive to Seville from Malaga or Granada by the A-92, the highway that is the major road in Andalusia from West to East.
From Southern Portugal and Huelva you can arrive to Seville by the A-49 highway.

The traditional “Ruta de la Plata” ends its route in Seville. Following the traditional route (N-630) or the most modern one highway A-66) it is possible to reach our city from Gijon, Zamora, Salamanca or Mérida.

In addition to these ways of transport that join Seville to many others cities, the city is surrounded by a bypass road (SE-30 highway, 22 km long) that aids in traffic distribution according to the different approaches without passing through the city centre.

Apart from private transportation, there are many different companies that arrive to Seville from the main Spanish, Andalusian and even some European capital cities, from the bus stations: “Plaza de Armas” and “Prado San Sebastian.”

  By Plane

Seville is very well-communicated by air. The Airport, designed by Rafael Moneo, constitutes one of the most prominent examples in the contemporaneous architecture in the city. The inspiration on classic elements can be clearly appreciated in the main hall, which is covered by arches of great magnitude, and in the use of elements such as the tiles or the orange trees in order to take root to the building in the architectonic Andalusian tradition.

Seville Airport exceeded, in 2009, four millions visitors in the nearly twenty airways which operate from the airport and connect the city with national, European and northern Africa destinations.

Transportation from the airport to the city | The bus line called “Especial Aeropuerto” connects the arrivals hall with the city centre and it has several stops including the Santa Justa Station, Nervion Plaza mall, San Bernardo and Prado de San Sebastian.

Moreover, there is a taxi stop that lets you arrive to the airport from any city point with a fare around 22€.
  By Train

Seville is one of the first high speed line that was built in Spain after Madrid. Santa Justa Railway Station is another important building for transportation in Seville. Designed by Antonio Cruz and Antonio Ortiz, both native to Seville, it was inaugurated some time before the Universal Exposition in 1992 in order to replace the Cadiz and Cordoba Stations, thus becoming the organizing junction of rail transportation of the city. Its opening and laying of the tracks that cross the whole city cover large urban areas, such as Torneo and Buharia Avenues.

Sevilla-Santa Justa is connected with high-speed lines to Cordoba, Madrid, Zaragoza and Barcelona in the SW-NE line and to Malaga by means of AVANT trains; Renfe operates both of them.

The city is also connected by means of regional lines to other capital Andalusian and Extremaduran cities, such as Huelva, Cadiz, Granada or Merida. It is also works a large
network of local lines that let you arrive to Seville from any near municipality or region, such as Sierra Morena or the Campiña.

  By Boat

Although Seville has an outstanding port industry for transportation and shipbuilding as Spain’s most important River port, there is no regular passenger transportation service provided by the Guadalquivir River arriving to the city.

However, there are several shipping routes that visit Seville in their routes from the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

From May to October “Cruceros Torre del Oro,” a local company, offers boat excursions between Seville and the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, Sanlucar de Barrameda (Cadiz).
