The airport is situated 6 miles from the city itself, between the city limits of Seville and the nearby suburb of Rinconada. Its official address is Carretera N-IV Madrid-Cadiz, Kilometre 532, Seville. The design of its grounds and facilities were inspired by the mosque, palace and orange trees that make the Seville landscape unique.
Five major car rental agencies operate facilities at Sevilia Airport, where you can rent a car or pick up a rental that you reserved prior to your trip. There are four taxi services that operate authorized airport taxis, and the flat rate for a ride to the city of Seville is either â‚¬21.89, â‚¬24.41 or â‚¬30.50 depending upon the actual destination, time of day and day of week.

You can begin your experience in Seville with a visit to the medieval Muslim palace of Alcazar, where the Moorish rulers of pre-Christian Spain built beautiful and relaxing gardens to complement their palace. The Plaza de Espana, a classical architectural masterpiece that was actually built in 1929 for the World's Fair, is another great place to start your tour of the city. Don't miss the Giralda Tower, a minaret that was converted to a bell tower, or Barrio Santa Cruz, a historic neighbourhood adjacent to the Alcazar that features Baroque architecture and very contemporary, yet traditional, Spanish tapas bars. The Triana neighbourhood once housed tile workshops and the Gypsy families who created flamenco; today, it is a place to enjoy local cuisine and shop for local ceramic crafts. Seville is historically associated with bullfighting, and the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza is a functioning bullfighting arena that includes a museum where you can learn more about the sport.
Visiting Seville in the months from November to March is a great way to save money and to enjoy Seville when it is quieter. The weather is very pleasant, and you will find it easier to get around and to avoid lines at popular tourist attractions. Easter Week and the Seville April Fair are worth experiencing, but make sure to book your tickets and accommodation far in advance for these event-filled peak times.
