If you want a really authentic Andalucían adventure, book flights to Seville. Seville is an absolutely gorgeous city, right down to the sweet aroma of orange blossom that permanently scents the air as it drifts from the city’s famous orange groves. Seville encapsulates a lot of what we see as quintessentially ‘Spanish’ – if it had a soundtrack, it would be the dreamy finger-picking of a Spanish guitar. The people are relaxed and take their pleasure very seriously indeed; it’s the home of bullfighting and the birthplace of fiery flamenco; and it’s a city where you are guaranteed the finest Andalucían cuisine and the warmest Andalucían sunshine.
