Seville - tapas and flamenco

It is said the only thing missing in Seville is the ocean and that it has everything else: beautiful landscapes, traditional towns and cities, historical monuments and, above all, joy.

This province of Seville is a land of contrasts. From its steep mountain peaks, to the fertile valley of the Guadalquivir, to the golden beauty of the capital, full of important historical monuments. Traveling to this region and not visiting its capital is almost a sin. You cannot miss its great tourist attractions, the mosque – the most spectacular of all those created by the Muslims – the great Cathedral and El Real Alcázar.

Nor can we forget the beautiful towns scattered throughout the valleys and mountains of the province of Seville, such as Écija, Carmona and Utrera.

Its natural landscapes are another of its great attractions. Among those that stand out are the Sierra Morena (to the north) and the Sierra Sur. The Guadalquivir flows between them, watering a rich and fertile valley in its path. In addition, Seville has the impressive marshes of the Doñana Natural Park, a unique and spectacular landscape that will delight any traveller.

The festivals are, without a doubt, one of the pillars on which tourism is based in this region. Two great festivals full of passion especially stand out: the April Fair and Holy Week, both declared of International Tourist Interest.

Seville - fiestas and romerias

Fiestas Seville has some of the most important fiestas in Andalusia. When the orange trees begin to blossom, Seville decks itself out for its famous Semana Santa (Easter Week) and Feria de Abril (April Fair). Semana Santa started in the 14th century and is the city's most famous celebration. It spans the 7 days of Easter, with the staging of daily processions.
The other big celebration, the Feria de Abril, was created in the mid-19th century as an agricultural and cattle fair. During the celebration, the city's men flock to the event dressed in short jackets, boots and chaps, and the women wear colourful dresses with ruffles.
The Romería (pilgrimage) del Rocío is also worthy of note. The pilgrims come from all to the sanctuary of the Virgen del Rocío in the village of Almonte, Huelva, to see the procession. The procession is solemn, but the uniforms and dress of the different Brotherhoods are colourful. Many of the streets along the path are covered with white awnings.

The Andalusian cuisine

Andalusian cuisine has been influenced both by the climate and by the many cultures that have established themselves here. The land is ideal for growing olives and grapes. In fact, one of the oldest and most famous wines in the world - sherry - is cultivated here. Another excellent drink has also been created in Andalusia: the sangria, a blend of red wine and fruit. Gazpacho soup is also an excellent light meal.

For vegetarians, the fresh, ripe vegetables of the region are a real feast for the palate.
