If you're planning a visit to the Cathedral of Seville, it's good to know when you can catch a mass. The cathedral hosts mass every day, but the timing changes with the seasons. 

From April to October, which is the busier part of the year, you can attend mass from: 

  • Monday to Saturday at 8:00 am, 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, and again at 8:00 pm. 
  • On Sundays, the schedule is a bit different, with masses at 8:00, 10:00, 12:00, 1:30 pm, and 8:30 pm.

During the quieter months from November to March, the schedule is slightly different.

  • From Monday to Saturday, masses are held at 8:00, 10:00, and 12:00. 
  • Sundays follow the same schedule as the high season, with an additional mass at 8:30 pm.

Remember, these times might change, so it's a smart move to double-check before you go. You can always look up the latest schedule on the Cathedral of Seville's website or give them a call just to be sure.

Seville Cathedral isn't just an architectural marvel; it's a vibrant hub of religious services throughout the year. Here's a sneak peek into some special masses you might encounter on your pilgrimage:

1. Christmas Eve at Midnight: Feel the magic of Christmas Eve come alive at the Misa del Gallo, a special midnight mass held in the heart of the Cathedral. Presided by the Archbishop himself, this is a moment of pure joy and reflection on the birth of Jesus. Head to the San Miguel or Los Palos doors if you want to join the celebration.

2. Celebrating the Eucharist: Witness the awe-inspiring Corpus Christi procession dedicated to the Holy Eucharist. This vibrant parade of faith fills the streets with music, costumes, and religious icons, all culminating in a mass at the Cathedral. Catch it through the San Miguel, Campanillas, or Los Palos gates starting at 7:30 pm.

3. A Season of Reflection: Ash Wednesday kicks off Lent with a sad yet powerful mass filled with prayer and fasting. It's a time to reflect on mortality and prepare for Easter. Join the service at the Puerta de los Palos or San Miguel doors starting at 7:00 pm.

4. Holy Week Splendor: Dive into the heart of Seville's religious traditions during Holy Week. From the Palm Sunday Mass to the Easter Vigil and beyond, the Cathedral becomes a stage for grand ceremonies overseen by the Archbishop. On Holy Thursday and Good Friday, you can witness these special masses starting at 4:00 pm through the San Miguel and Campanilla doors.

The booking calendar for marriage opens on the 1st of each month, and you can secure your special date up to one year ahead. 

At the Cathedral, weddings are held on Fridays and Saturdays with the following schedule:

On Fridays:

  • 6:30 pm.
  • 8:30 pm.

On Saturdays:

  • 11:00 am.
  • 1:00 pm.
