Seville – Tapas, Flamenco and Romance

Seville, the capital of Andalucia, is one of the most enchanting places you will ever visit and sums up the Andalucian way of life perfectly. The home of tapas, flamenco and bull fighting, it comes close to summing in Spain in a nutshell as well (or at least the Spain found in tourist magazines).

Seville is packed with the hidden plazas, each intersected by narrow winding streets and surrounded by the orange blossom that characterises the beautiful city. These plazas are lined with authentic tapas bars which have lived there for decades, even centuries, and are towered over by glorious architecture, whether that be gothic, baroque, renaissance or one of many other influences.

The city isn’t just about tapas and flamenco either. It is the most passionate in the time of Semana Santa and has the most romantic feria each year in all of Spain. Then there’s the nightlife, which easily competes with any of its city rivals and is packed with some of the most stylish people in the country. A holiday in Seville isn’t to be missed, and may well end up being an extended stay…
