Some cities blast you away, others slowly win you over. Seville disarms and seduces you. Its historic centre lorded over by a colossal Gothic cathedral, is an intoxicating mix of beautiful palaces, churches, and medieval lanes. It's a contagiously romantic city whose ambience pervades Seville's winding streets and spills out of the bars and tapas parlours of Santa Cruz. The Sevillano have long since mastered the art of celebrating and the city’s great annual festivals are among Spain’s most heartfelt.
