Seville is quintessential Spain. Although the architecture is a layered blend of Christian and Moorish styles, those clichés that are most associated with Spain are all to be found huddled in Andalucia’s compact capital. From flamenco to fiestas and tapas to bullfights, here you’ll find the biggest and the best. ’Romantic’, ’flamboyant’, ’intriguing’ and ’embracing’ - these are all words that have been used to describe Seville, but so have ’wild’ (think bullfights and frenzied flamenco), ’reserved’, ’conspicuous’ and ’insular’.
