Known for its passionate gypsy flamenco dancing, impressive monuments and the winding Guadalquivir river, Seville is truly the heart of Southern Spain. After all, no vacation to Spain is complete without visiting one of the most unique spots in Andalusia, where Moorish, Christian and Jewish history and architecture timelessly bind together.

Hear the clattering of horse carriages and breathe in the scents of orange blossoms as you roam the small, twisted streets of the Jewish quarter, stopping to admire stores selling artisan goods and homemade spices and honey.

Weave your way to the main square, starting spellbound at La Giralda, the tower built during the Arab occupation of Spain in 1184, now a part of the Roman-Christian Seville Cathedral. One of the largest cathedrals in the world, the massive church houses the tomb of Christopher Columbus.

The Alcázar of Seville is a Royal Palace with some of the most majestic gardens in the country. Keep your eyes peeled for peacocks as you meander through the greenery and flowers and past the trickling fountains to hear a song from one of the world’s only remaining water organs (played on the hour).

You’re sure to fall in love with Seville’s warm sunshine and energetic ambiance — and their famous solomillo al whiskey tapa, succulent pork marinated in whiskey with steaming hot potatoes.
