What do I need to know before retiring in Seville?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Seville, they said...

"Before retiring in Seville, expats should know that the city has a warm Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters. They should be aware that the cost of living is generally lower than in many other European cities, but it's still important to have a solid financial plan in place. Expats should also know that while many locals speak English, it's beneficial to learn Spanish to fully immerse in the culture and daily life. They should be prepared for a slower pace of life, as Seville is known for its laid-back lifestyle. Healthcare in Spain is of a high standard, and expats should ensure they have the appropriate health insurance coverage. It's also important to understand the Spanish tax system, as they may be liable for taxes on worldwide income. Seville is rich in culture and history, offering plenty of activities for retirees, from exploring historic sites to attending flamenco shows. However, it's worth noting that Seville can be crowded with tourists, particularly during the annual Feria de Abril and Semana Santa festivals. Expats should also be aware that Seville is a relatively safe city, but like any other place, it's important to take common-sense precautions. Lastly, they should understand that while Seville is a modern city, it still holds onto its traditions, and adjusting to the local customs and lifestyle may take some time," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Seville, Spain.
