Monday? What is so special about a Monday in Sevilla?
Well, a lot of things are free to visit on a Monday! As a stingy Dutchie, I know all about it haha 😉 Here is the list of what is free to visit on a Monday:
1. The bullfight ring
I can imagine not being too eager to go to a bullfight in the ring, but you can actually also just visit the museum.
If you buy tickets for this, you will go on a tour and learn more about the history of bullfighting, visit the court of horses, and the Chapel of the Bullfighters. The tour takes around 1 hour and you will end the tour in the arena, which for me was really impressive to witness. You can feel the whole vibe and see how big the ring is, I mean it has 12.500 seats! My boss has told me that the earnings of the museum do not go to the bullfights, so you don´t have to worry about that.
Normally it costs 8 euros per person, but it is free to visit from 3 PM to 7 PM on Monday!
Paseo de Cristóbal Colón, 12,
2. Cathedral of Sevilla
The biggest Gothic cathedral in the world, which is also on the UNESCO world heritage list! Did you know some of the remains of Christopher Columbus are buried in here? I think those 3 facts are reasons enough to visit this huge and beautiful Cathedral!
On Monday it is free to visit from 4:30 PM to 6 PM. But you do have to make a reservation online! Normally it costs you 10 euros to visit the Cathedral.
Av. de la Constitución, s/n,
3. Torre del Oro
Third the Torre del Oro or ´Tower of gold.´ It is located next to the Guadalquivir river and close to the Bullfight ring. It used to be a watchtower in the period of time when the Moorish ruled over Sevilla.
Right now it is a maritime museum. You will learn here more about sailing and how the tower was built. Besides that, you can climb on top of the tower and have a nice view over the river.
Normally is it 3 euros to enter, but on Mondays, it is free to visit all day!
Paseo de Cristóbal Colón, s/n,
4. Real Alcázar
I always tell the guests of my tour that ´if there´s one thing you need to see in Sevilla before you leave, it has to be the Real Alcázar.´
This is a palace and it is on the UNESCO world heritage list. It was made by different civilizations, from the Almohads to the Christian kings and it is absolutely stunning to see. Even the immense garden is fantastic to see.
Before I make you too excited, no, the Real Alcázar is not free all Monday. It is only free for the last hour on Monday, so from 4 PM-5 PM.
You can of course go stand in line and hope for the best you can get in, but they only let 750 people in at the same time. So you can also get your tickets online, but be aware that you have to pay a 1 euro administration fee, and some Mondays it already may be sold out. So book your tickets in time!
Patio de Banderas, s/n,
5. Palacio de las Duenas
A palace which is not as amazing as the Real Alcázar, but still nice to walk through. It has small patios, halls, and gardens. Right now it belongs to the house of Alba. It was built in the late 15th century and it has a Renaissance style with Gothic and Moorish influences.
The entree is free on Mondays from 4 PM until full capacity (free tickets are only available from the ticket office, from 4 PM on the day of the visit). Queues can form before this. Normally the tickets are 10 euros per person!
Calle Dueñas, 5,
