The Soul of Flamenco
Flamboyant Sevilla thrums with flamenco music while it's whitewashed old town traditional houses shine with the colours of bougainvilleas. By the 17th century, Sevilla was Spain’s largest and wealthiest city, and this rich legacy is well spread all across the city. It is truly a place which enchants the senses, with the subtle fragrance of azahar (orange blossom) intoxicating the air in spring while the sound of flamenco echoes through the narrow alleys of the Santa Cruz quarter.
As many advocates of Seville state, "Sevilla does not have ambience, it is ambience, it is Soul."
Seville is loaded with romanticism and expectation, and it delivers on many fronts. There’s the neck-creaking delights of its architecture, the gluttony-inducing tapas, the palm-aching flamenco clapping, warm sunshine, the scent of almond and orange blossom mixing gently with the evening jasmine. At its heart, the gold-encrusted Alcazar Palace and the third largest church in Christendom stand side by side amongst the labyrinth of old Moorish streets. There are a number of beautiful and ornate mudejar style buildings, the best of which is the Casa Pilatos, a cool oasis with peaceful patios and elegant colonnades, the Plaza de España and Maria Luisa Park, the narrow streets of the Santa Cruz quarter, the old Jewish quarter....
