The Seville Metro is an 18km light metro system consisting of a singular line servicing 22 stations. Having opened in 2009, it is a modern, small and efficient metro system that is simple to use, but not always the best option for tourists.

The Seville Metro is open every day of the week including holidays, with extended hours on the weekend.

Seville Metro Frequency

During rush hour (between 7am and 9am) the metro runs every 4 – 5 minutes.

For the rest of the day the metro runs roughly every 8-15 minutes depending on demand.

Special events and holidays (especially around Christmas) sees the frequency of trains increase.

Seville Metro Tickets and Prices

Single tickets on the Seville Metro cost €1.35, and there are no additional discounts for a return ticket – you just book two singles.

There is an option for an all-day ticket priced at €4.50, allowing you unlimited metro travel for 24 hours. This option is only worth it if you’re planning on using the metro more than once.

Tickets can be purchased at all stations via self service machines, with some of the larger stations also having manned kiosks to purchase tickets.

From a tourist perspective, if you’re already in the centre, the Seville Metro isn’t recommended, and there are better alternatives (either walking or the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus) to travelling around Seville’s main attractions, as the metro is mainly used to access the suburbs around Seville.
