Exploring The Delights Of Seville

Sep 11, 2008
The city is a paradise and an amazing getaway for anyone looking for something different.

Seville is the southernmost city in the Andalusian province. Known as Sevilla by the locals, the city is infused with all that is typically Spanish one of the biggest attractions being the Flamenco Festival being the largest in the world. Although Seville has a dynamic nightlife, the best way to experience the nightlife is to visit some of the flamenco clubs because this is something you cannot repeat anywhere in the world. One such club would be Casa Anselma.

Even if you do not want to dance, you will nevertheless find your foot tapping to the music as you sit at the bar sipping a drink.

Another huge attraction in Seville and also something that is typically Spanish is bullfighting. The most popular bullfighting ring, the Maestranza, is situated just outside the main area of the city.

Whether you are for or against bullfighting, you can't help but be caught up in the excitement and to experience something that is so local and raw. The bullfighting season runs from April till the end of October.

Holy Week (or Easter Week) in Seville lasts from Palm Sunday to Good Friday. During this time parades and festivals fill the air and wine and tapas can be found everywhere. Once a port, this is now one of the most important cultural centers of Spain. Seville is home to numerous fine arts, popular arts, contemporary art, and archaeological museums.

If you are into architecture then a stroll around the city will leave your mouth agape. Seville is home to the third largest cathedral in the world The Cathedral of Seville. This architectural wonder is also the largest in Spain. Many of the hotels you could find yourself staying in are also old buildings that have been restored. The best way to get a true picture of the surrounding area is to ask the local hotel staff. Although you will get valuable information from tourism guides, it is the locals that will have all the best places for you to visit.

It all depends on where you want to stay. If you want to be in the hub of the nightlife then you should look at staying in the older parts of Seville. If, however, you want a bit more peace and quiet then you should look at finding holiday accommodation on the outskirts of the city where you will be able to enjoy a late breakfast overlooking the city.

If you like warm weather, you should look at coming in the summer months although the weather is mild all year round.
