Seville or Lisbon
We have the possibility of going to either Lisbon or Seville for 4 days (in Januray!).

I haven't been to any of the two cities before.

Which one of the places would you recommend?

Thank you.

January, wet in either city and mild.

I like Lisbon but for 4 days Seville offers so much more and Cordoba is just down the track.

I haven't been to Lisbon for years but Seville is wonderful. I would recommend Seville highly.

Having recently been to both, I thought them both wonderful, but offering different things.

History : Seville
Scenery/Scenic views: Lisbon
Food: Seville (hands down, with the exception of pastry in Lisbon)
Cost: Lisbon (hands down: incredibly cheap)

In January, Lisbon without a doubt. It will be cool and wet but Lisbon has one of Europe's mildest climates and warmest winters, and the city offers more that enough to keep you busy for 4 days.

If I had the option, I'd chose clearly Seville

I would also choose Sevilla.

I have not been to Seville... but I have been to Lisbon in January (and enjoyed it).

Here is our trip report:

And here are our photos:

Hope this helps!

Have not been to either recently, like Lisbon is a city with lots to do but I dream of going back to Sevilla!

Thank you everybody for your advises. It seems that both places are worth to visit.
