About Seville

Excellent tapas bars and a love of flamenco and fiesta make this a city full of life. A maze of cobbled streets, whitewashed houses, flowered balconies, and scented orange trees, this is a charming city with an authentic Spanish flavour.

Food and drink

Sevillian cuisine is light and simple. Local specialities include gazpacho (chilled tomato and pepper soup) and soldatidos de pavia (fried cod or hake), and don't forget to visit one of the many tapas bars.

Shopping

Some of the best buys include Andalucian ceramics, leather goods, embroudery and mantillas (bed covers and table cloths). The weekly market is in Calle Feria and is known for its great selection of Spanish specialities.

Things to see and do

  • Cathedral and Giralda Tower - Take a funicular to the top of Castle Hill for views of the city, the Turul Statue, the Royal Palace and a selection of museums and churches.
  • Santa Cruz - The Jewish Quarter is a pretty picture-postcard complex of streets and squares.
  • Alcazar Palace - The home to royal families since the Caliph of Andalucia. Built in the early 9th century and the oldest active royal palace in Europe.
  • Torro del Oro - A little 'Golden Tower' on the Guadakquivir riverbank and a real Seville landmark.
  • Flamenco Andalucia is the spiritual home of this passionate and emotional dance - once you have experienced it in its homeland you will become addicted.
  • Barrio Santa Cruz Walk the labyrinth of alleyways framed by the walls of Alcazar. This is an enchanting district of Seville with whitewashed houses and flower-filled patios.
