Overview

Don’t (Barber) cut to the chase

Don’t (Barber) cut to the chase

Consider Seville as complex as the castanet – the percussive instrument that dates back to the Greeks, but is now firmly grounded in Spanish culture. Each divided into parts, differently pitched and played out in both subtle and intricate rhythms.
Used to accompany classical or folkloric dances, Spanish castanets are bound together by a cord put through the holes in each half. Contrary to popular belief, castanets aren’t commonly used in flamenco. In fact, the Spanish folk dance “Sevillanas” is the style typically performed that incorporates these palilos, or little sticks, as they’re known in Andalucia.

About Spain


To see a true Flamenco show in Seville is a touristy treat. The shows take place in a tablao, and there are plenty to choose from. At El Patio Sevillano, you’ll see intricately designed costumes, heavy makeup and lots of dramatics in a typical Andalusian patio. Have your dinner elsewhere, and just pay the cover charge for a drink.

You may even see a Flamenco dancer at the Santa Justa train station upon your arrival, waiting to welcome you to this capital of Andalucia. The modern station brings people from all over Spain thanks to high-speed AVE and RENFE service. Located at Avenida de Kansas, you’ll exit the station and realize you are definitely not home anymore, and won’t want to click your heels.

Only have a day ? Our Seville City Hop-on, Hop-off Sightseeing Tour gives you an overview of the city before deciding on your day’s itinerary, or simply hop on and off the bus at will when the mood strikes you. And it will, as Seville is one of the world’s most romantic cities. You’ll pass the Plaza of Spain, the Door of Jerez and trees of Seville Oranges that taste like sour lemons (take our word for it.)

When the current royal family needs a rest, the come to Seville to vacation in a centuries-old former fort. The Alcazar means “royal residence” in Arabic, and it’s a structure fit for kings and queens. From the architecture with its flying buttresses to the interior’s intricately designed magnificence, the palace is a stately reminder of the city’s Moorish past. Stop to smell the fragrant gardens and take a walk on the Patio de las Doncellas – the Patio of the Maidens, stopping at the reflecting pool.

Reflection is part of every traveler’s journey. All over Andalucia – you’ll find ample opportunities to think : under an orange tree, on a flower-filled patio, being serenaded. And certainly on the train. All of the beauty, romance and history of the area is just up the track : Cordova, Cadiz, Jerez. All less than two hours away. Get a Eurail Spain Pass to seek out new cities, new adventures, and discover more than a place. Learn more about you.

Head to El Rinconcillio for a unique tapas experience. Some say it is the oldest tapas bar in Seville. It certainly feels like little has changed in many years, with its flagstone floors and ancient bottles of wine lining the walls.

To find the best places to shop in Seville, head to Calle Sierpes, running from the Campana up to Plaza Salvador, and Calles Tetuan and Cuna, which run parallel on either side of Sierpes. The Plaza Nueva, a traffic free zone, is the place where you will find chic boutiques.
