A string of Spain’s best beaches take their place in Andalucia, so it’s well worth swapping the city for the sand. From Seville it’s an hour’s drive to your closest swathe, and there’s plenty more in daytripping distance, too.
Matalascanas is Seville’s closet stretch of sand. It’s around an hour’s drive from the centre of the city, and it’s loaded up with a three-mile run of super-soft sand.
There’s a bus service to Cala del Aceite from Seville, it’s got a door-to-door time of just under two hours. This beach boasts a small, cosy vibe, and it rubs shoulders with Donata National Park – a wetland reserve that runs along the banks of the River Guadalquivir.
You can brush up on your bartering skills at Triana’s market hall. It’s lined with stalls selling fresh food, hand-made ceramics and small-plate dishes.
If you’re after a bit of retail therapy, head to Sierpes Street, where walkways are framed by famous-face shops on both sides.
Tetuan Street is tucked away behind Sierpes Street. It’s the place to head for diamond-studded jewellery, and one-off garments crafted by local designers.
Round off your day at a rooftop bar in Alameda. It’s one of the city’s most upmarket neighbourhoods and the skyline views from the top of its buildings are first-rate.
Seville doesn’t shut up shop after dark. There’s plenty of spots to head for a night out. One of the best is Alfalfa, it’s filled with bars that spill out onto the streets and nightclubs which don’t close their doors until sunrise.
This veggie-friendly favourite is a blend of spinach and chickpeas. It’s usually served up with a picatostes – a super-sized crouton.
Seville’s signature whisky sauce is poured over a tender slice of sirloin steak on this dish. It’s usually served up with chunky chips for dipping, too.
If cocktails are your thing, try out a refreshing Rebujito. It’s made using sherry lemon-lime soda and fresh mint.
Yep, you read that right. Seville’s serious about oranges, and this sweet tipple often makes an appearance on the table when the desserts are being dished up. This version’s a different vibe to the orange wine you might get elsewhere, which is just a type of white wine.
These are a bit like French toast, made by dipping bread into milk and eggs and topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar, or honey.
