Seville is a city that leaves its mark and which many agree is special. It may be because of the magnificence of its monuments, or because of the charm of popular neighbourhoods such as Triana.
It may be due to the scent of jasmine in its squares or the Spanish guitar music that can be heard in its streets. Some argue that it is the tradition of its fiestas, and many are convinced that its tapas are the real culprits.
The Giralda is an icon of the city and one of its main charms is the viewpoint. This is a fantastic view of Seville with a courtyard of orange trees, very typical of Andalusia, and the largest Gothic temple in Europe, the Cathedral, in the foreground.
A visit to the Real Alcazar reveals an extraordinary palace complex full of details. If you are travelling in summer, take the opportunity to enjoy its night-time visits and the festival held in its gardens.
Seville is much more than its undeniable monumentality. It is a city that is lived in the streets and in its large open spaces such as the enormous Plaza de España, the María Luisa Park or the avant-garde Setas de Sevilla (The Mushrooms).
The Southern Tradition
In Seville, tradition is always fashionable. From flamenco shows and Spanish guitar music to ceramics and typical handicrafts that will always be a good souvenir of the city. Shops and workshops abound in the Triana neighbourhood.
Two good examples are the Feria de Abril (April Fair) and Holy Week. The first is joy and passion for Andalusian popular art, an unbeatable opportunity to enjoy the sound of the Spanish guitar, flamenco fashion and the most festive Seville. Holy Week is a passionate festival full of emotional moments.
