Where does this data come from
Weather data for Seville was collected from the MERRA-2 project from NASA, which used a climate model combined with historical data from weather stations around the world to estimate what the conditions were like for every point on the Earth.
For all data based on historical data, we’ve averaged the data from the past 11 years (2010-2020). For example, for the hourly temperature at 10am, we’ve looked at the temperature at 10am on every day in January (e.g., January 1, January 2, etc. in 2010, 2011, etc.) and took the arithmetic mean. We did not smooth the data, so for example, our daily temperature line will have some randomness due to the fact that weather is random in the first place.

The temperature here very rarely drops below +5 °C, and even less often – below 0 °C, but this will happen.
Then the walks will not be very comfortable, and plans will have to be adjusted.
Weather in Seville in January
The weather in January-February here is, as they say, wintery, as for Spain as a whole, and quite changeable.
It happens that on a sunny day you can walk in a T-shirt, but it happens that the thermometers surprise you with negative readings.
However, the temperature here has never dropped below -5°C.
The weather in early January is characterized by neither frost nor snowfalls.
Daily thermometer readings are mainly at +12 °С – +17 °С and are very comfortable for walking around the city in order to explore the sights.
The daytime temperature in Seville in mid-January, according to the observations of weather forecasters over the past four years, practically did not fall below +10 °C, more often it stays at +15 °C.
Night can be lower and sometimes drops to +3 °С, although on average it stays at +8 °С – +10 °С.
The weather in Seville at the end of January is also characterized by temperature fluctuations, change of sunny and cloudy days and the same lack of snow.
Accordingly, we do not recommend going on a trip without warm clothes.
Relatively warm, sunny and sometimes rainy winters in Seville are explained by the fact that the city is influenced by the Mediterranean climate.
There were seasons when the air temperature in Seville in January reached its possible limit – +24 °С, and it happened that it dropped to -5 °С.
Of course, such phenomena are infrequent, and the temperature usually stays between these indicators.

Sunny, cloudy and overcast days
Despite the peak of the winter season, the sun is not a rare guest in the Andalusian sky.
In total, about 16 – 21 sunny days are issued per month. There are 4 – 5 overcast days, and 5 to 7 days with variable cloudiness.
Sightseeing holidays: what to see in January
It is not at all difficult to make an excursion program around Seville – everything is interesting here.
It is difficult to fit the entire list of attractions in one trip. Therefore, we will only talk about some of the most striking and suitable excursions for this time of year.
Undoubtedly, in early January you can choose a fine sunny day to go on an amazing walk along Plaza de España .
This is one of the most unusual squares in the modern world, despite the fact that it was built in 1928 to the opening of the Ibero-American Exhibition.
In the center of the round square paved with tiles there is a large fountain, and on one side the territory is framed by a huge semicircular building, made in two styles at once – Art Nouveau and the local original Mudéjar style. Really impressive place.
You can continue your walk in the Marie-Louise Park, where the square passes.
Orange and olive trees, a variety of buildings that fit perfectly into the landscape, playgrounds, a pond – everything is here to win the love of visitors. Entrance here is completely free.
And if during the day the park is filled with tourists, then in the evenings local residents join them as well – they love to walk here with their children.
Well, the time to come for a walk can be found in mid-January – palm trees are still green, and orange trees delight with bright fruits.
If little inquisitive little ones are traveling with you, they just need to find out why an 8-meter whale figure hangs from the ceiling, why comics are drawn on the walls and check whether the exhibits in the museum can really be touched.
Answers to these and many other questions are waiting for them in the House of Science. You can come here at the end of January or at another time, if it suddenly rains outside the window.
In addition, it has its own planetarium with adult and children’s programs, so the tour is suitable for any age category.
Children under 5 years old are admitted to the museum free of charge, admission for an adult costs 3 euros, and a ticket to the planetarium costs 3 euros.
One cannot fail to mention the next unusual place, and even more so, it is impossible not to visit it, having been in the capital of Andalusia.
Metropol Parasol (roughly translated as “city umbrella”) is a complex of buildings in the form of giant umbrellas (the townspeople call them mushrooms), based on huge columns, interconnected and consisting of four levels.
The underground floor houses the remains of Roman ruins, the ground floor is reserved for the Central Market, the first level houses an open area for events, and the second and third are equipped with viewing terraces, from where a stunning view of the city opens.
There are no analogues to this innovative building in the world, so this item is probably one of the main ones on the list of visits.

Holidays, events and festivals
At the beginning of the new year, people usually make plans and make wishes.
Holidays in Seville in January, it turns out, are quite capable of helping to fulfill these desires, one has only to come here during the winter holidays.
January 1 Spain celebrates New Year . In fact, this is just an official holiday, when all shops, restaurants, pharmacies and government agencies are completely closed.
The celebration takes place at night, at a family dinner and nightly fireworks, and by morning everything calms down, the city is empty and comes to life again only on the morning of January 2nd.
The most favorite holiday of the year for Spanish kids is Three Kings Day , which is celebrated on January 6th. It is to them (and not to Santa Claus) that children write letters with the most cherished desires with the hope of their fulfillment.
Magic Kings appear in the city on the night of January 5-6, festively marching and greeting the city’s population. Moving bright platforms follow them, scattering sweets, which indescribably delights the kids.
Children’s playgrounds with all kinds of entertainment are set up throughout the city, and the celebration ends with the distribution of gifts that children are waiting for.
We can hardly reveal a secret if we say that no trip is complete without shopping.
Souvenirs, clothes, shoes, jewelry – this is not a complete list of what tourists usually bring from trips.
Shopping in Seville is especially attractive in the second half of January, when all the shops of shopping centers vying with each other offer up to 80% discounts.
And given that there are at least two or three floors with shops, a large selection of food courts and play areas for children, we can safely say that it will take a whole day to visit the shopping center.
Do not forget about the opportunity to return 10-15% of purchases when crossing the border of the European Union.
Tax free is charged on purchases from 90 euros, you just need to ask the store to issue the necessary documents.
Luxury and mid-range shopping can be done in boutiques located in the city center on Cierpes Street.
January is one of the months of the low season, which starts in November and lasts until Carnival in February.
Accordingly, prices in Seville in January are slightly lower than in the previous month.
So you have a wonderful opportunity to spend a wonderful holiday in Andalusia for relatively little money.
At the beginning of the month, the demand for tickets may slightly increase, and at the same time prices may increase slightly, but not more than 5% compared to December.
However, it is still better to book flights in advance in order to pay the best possible price. Another way to save money is to fly with low-cost airlines.
If you have long dreamed of seeing the sights of Seville, then in January is the time, because housing prices are the lowest of the year.

The tourist flow only slightly increases during the winter holidays.
In January, hotel accommodation becomes cheaper, the average cost per room is 103 euros. In February, the average price per room will be 138 euros.
- Prices for hotels in Seville
The cost of food in Seville, as elsewhere, depends on the distance of a restaurant or cafe from the city center – the farther, the cheaper.
For example, lunch in a restaurant will cost at least 30 – 35 euros, and in a cafe somewhere near the university – almost half the price.
You can have a bite of toasted toast and a cup of coffee for about 5 euros, and you can enjoy a portion of ice cream consisting of two balls for 2. 30 euros in the popular Mascarpone cafe.
In one of the chain cafes, somewhat reminiscent of McDonald’s, but containing a menu with a Spanish twist, a large set of three sandwiches, a salad and a drink costs 7 euros, and for three you can get a couple of sandwiches with jamon and vegetables.

Recommendations for families with children
Seville is an interesting city and a great idea for a family trip during the winter holidays.
It will definitely be interesting for schoolchildren to visit the House of Science, the Planetarium and the aquarium, and on a fine day to walk along the Plaza de España, admiring the fountain and the Maria Luisa Park, discovering more and more of its corners.
Of course, we would advise you to choose a different time for holidays with kids – in January the weather is unfriendly, it can rain, and walks will not be too comfortable.
