Seville’s hypnotic appeal goes far beyond its impressive collection of monuments, horse-drawn carriages, quaint cobblestone streets, and charming courtyard patios. Indeed, Spain’s fourth-largest city has a lively spirit most evident in its passionate people, who proudly preserve the city’s heritage through music, dance, and centuries-old traditions. The best way to experience the essence of Seville is to explore its storied streets; walk through the old Jewish Quarter, Santa Cruz, and discover lesser-known ancient landmarks. Or for a change of scenery, cross the bridge to Triana, known for exquisite handcrafted pottery, tiles, and most famously for its vibrant flamenco scene.
