It is fairly typical to be captivated by the city of Seville, not only because of the diversity of its multicultural population, but also because of the very architectural, magical appeal of this provincial capital in Andalucía, its nooks and crannies and streets where getting lost is always a good option ... and a strong possibility.

It is for this reason that Seville is included in most of the rankings that rate the beauty of Spain, among other things. In one of its latest rankings Traveler magazine has decided to do a tour of the most beautiful locations with flights of steps in Spain, and of course the city of Seville features once again.

From north to south and from east to west in Spain we can find flights of steps of all kinds, some more majestic like the Escalera Dorada in Burgos , others much simpler like the Pujada de Sant Domenec in Girona, whose plainness is precisely what makes it a tourist attraction that takes us back in time. Others stand out for their surroundings, such as the landscape around the Escalera Vía Crucis in Vizcaya, a perfect location for filming scenes for series such as Game of Thrones. But which was the staircase chosen in Seville?

From Las Setas to the skies above

If there is one thing that characterises Sevilleis its mix of architectural styles, how it combines the traditional with the new so that the future and the past blend in with the rest of the city. That's why, since the opening of Las Setas in 2011, more than a few tourists and residents of the city have stopped by there to enjoy the full Seville experience.

Traveler magazine recognised that the most iconic steps in the city are none other than those in the Plaza de España with its colourful ceramic tiling. However, on this occasion it opted for those of Las Setas de Sevilla. Thanks to these stairs, we can enjoy 360º panoramic views of the city from its vantage point, located almost 30 metres above sea level. In addition, its 150-metre long and 70-metre wide wooden structure is unique in the world.

If you have not yet dared to see Seville through different eyes, Las Setas is one of the ideal places to do so, especially at sunset when the city, as is so often sung about, takes on a truly special colour.
