Sublime Seville, located in the picturesque southern region of Andalusia, is one of Spain’s largest cities, awash with architecture in the Moorish style, several UNESCO world heritage sites, pretty urban parks, and incredible wining and dining.
Seville (Sevilla to the locals) has an interesting history not only as a leading cultural centre, but as the home of Spanish exploration in the New World (it even once housed the mint that processed all the gold and silver from the Americas).
Today, there is a treasure trove of things to do in Seville. Start with a saunter through the labyrinth of charming narrow alleyways in the bohemian El Barrio de Santa Cruz neighbourhood, before exploring Plaza de España to glance at the gorgeous buildings (paying close attention to the vibrant tile work).
At sunset, head to one of Seville’s sumptuous and historic tapas bars for a glass of red wine and some Solomillo Al Whisky (prime cuts of pork with whiskey sauce.) Still ‘hungry’ for more? End your evening with a traditional flamenco show and then dance on over to one of Seville’s rooftop bars. Hotel Doña Maria‘s rooftop is a prime position to have a sip of sangria in the shadow of Seville Cathedral at night.
