How to get from Seville to Alájar by bus:

Total journey time – 1 ½ hours

  1. Bus/Taxi from the airport to the center of Seville (if you are flying to Seville)
  2. Get to bus station Plaza de Armas

Taxi from the Seville airport to city centre:
Taxis from airport to city cost around 30€ (fixed rate to first drop off point). They take around 30 mins to Plaza de Armas bus station, more at rush hour. If your flight is not going to get in before 3:00pm then it is very unlikely you’ll get to the station in time for the last bus to Alájar/Aracena.
If this is the case the two other options are to come by taxi – we can arrange the airport pick up for you at a cost of approx 130€ for upto 4 people, or to spend the night in Seville.

How to get from Seville to Aracena and Alájar:

The buses are still operating on the reduced timetable of ONE service per day caused by the pandemic March 2020. There is pressure from the town councils to return to the pre pandemic timetables but unfortunately they don’t seem to have much sway. The current timetable is programmed until 30 June 2022.

From Seville city centre buses depart daily from the Plaza de Armas bus station.
The ticket booth is on the left hand side as you walk in and you need to go to DAMAS
booth (6, 7 and 8). These are modern, air conditioned coaches with plenty baggage space
beneath. Check which platform it will leave from when you buy the ticket.
Cost: around 9€
