Seville

 
October 22, 2015   Seville, Spain-Portugal
 
 

We were in Seville (Sevilla in Spain) primarily to rent a car to drive to Marvao but we decided to extend it to a couple nights to get a look at the city I'd heard of (the Barber of Seville) but otherwise had no impression.

Now when I think of Seville I flash on Avenue de la Constitucion, a wide pedestrian street fronted by imposing stone buildings. Turns out, Seville is yet another beautiful Spanish city with the predictably nice walk-able streets and great food and all quite well maintained. Later I read that Seville is famous for hot weather and flamenco dancers but I missed both. On the other hand, we did explore the wonderful old town with narrow windy streets, and intimate square after intimate square.

Our day in Seville started with a healthy breakfast of cappuccino and apple pie. From there we walked to to the other side of the River Guadalquivir, the Triana neighborhood where we bought two small ceramic pieces at 7.50 each. Lunch was at a large tapas market. I'm really growing to appreciate tapas for the variety, serving size, and lack of commitment. And so far they've all been delicious.

Dinner was at the tapas market, Mercado Gourmet Lonja Del Barranco, on Calle Arjona. 15 for 3 large tapas and wine. From there we walked along the river back home.
