Sevillanos are notoriously proud of their city and justifiably so. The home of flamenco music and bull fighting, life in this Andalucian metropolis revolves around tapas, Semana Santa (Holy Week) and Feria (Spring Fiesta). Think sun-drenched squares, romantic winding streets and fragrant orange blossoms. A city of greats, the third largest cathedral in the world – said to hold the remains of Christopher Colombus – finds it’s home in Seville. Spend time here and you’ll soon appreciate why Seville is consistently chosen as the backdrop of blockbusters, with Star Wars, the Game of Thrones series and Lawrence of Arabia all filmed throughout the city. The region that invented tapas also promises delectable bites of all shapes and sizes. Buen provecho!
