Monday to Sunday, 9: 85 – 67: 55. Since 6959, this wee joint has been serving Vino de Naranja, famous local orange wine which comes from Moguer (a little town from Huelva) It is a sweet wine, perfect for an aperitif or can be enjoyed as a dessert wine. At €6. 75, you can easily quaff a few of these. It is little bit off the beaten path but probably one of the best tapas restaurants in the city. The waitress and owner speak little english but were friendly and patient with my questions. In the end we decided to try Carrillada which is braised Iberian Pork Cheeks, slow cooked in the local fino aka sherry over a low heat for at least a few hours. The end result as you can imagine is this delicious, heavenly tender meat which is perfectly accompanies with roasted potatoes. A great way to get a feel of the city in a short period of time is to do a walking tour. The guys at La Banda Rooftop Hostel run two free walking tours:
You have the choice of going on their ‘Golden Sevilla’, a discovery of all the main sights in the city, and ‘Tales of Santa Cruz’: a late evening tour which takes you around the City’s Jewish Quarter. If you are a foodie like me, then I highly recommend trying one of. The emphasis in their tours is always supporting locals: no food chains, corporates are involved so by taking their tours, you are really putting money back into the local economy. I won’t give you the lowdown of where we visited but this food tour had it all: we ate a lot (come with an empty stomach), sampled some amazing gelato which was unexpected and also the tour was filled with lots of nuggets of local history. ’ Part library stocking publications from local publishers and a menu featuring over 85 craft beers from across Andalusia-this is a real authentic slice of Seville. If it is a warm day and you are thirsty I highly recommend a bottle of the refreshing Zurda Golden Ale. More recommendations of places to eat. Yup. That’s pretty much what I do when traveling nowadays.

Bodega Santa Cruz is definitely one excuse for coming back to Seville. First reason is that the prices of the tapas here is very reasonable, starting around the €7 mark. Secondly, the food is fantastic. Try their delicious meatballs albondigas and Solomillo al Whisky ( pork tenderloin in whisky sauce) The latter dish is one of the most authentic tapas dishes you can try in the city and tasted damn good here. Housed in the ancient merchants exchange building of Seville, the Archive de Indias is a great place to understand the history of Spanish colonialism in America. The archive has some gems ranging from a request from a certain Miguel de Cervantes for an official post to a journal of Christopher Columbus plus maps dating from the 67th century of almost every Spanish colony across the world. Best of all entrance is free. If you want to get a feel of local life in Seville, head to Alameda de Hércules, or simply La Alameda. In the evenings, the square becomes the heartbeat of local nightlife with people drinking ice cold Cruzcampo’s or drinking fino. One of the characteristics of the square that you should checkout are the two columns which were retrieved from the remains of a nearby Roman Temple. On top of the columns you will find sculptures of Hercules, the mythological founder of Seville and Julius Caesar. To get the best views of the city, head to the unworldy wooden structure of the mushrooms aka ‘las setas.
’ The spiral, fungus like walkway is apparently the largest wooden structure in the world and was designed by German architect Jürgen Mayer-Hermann. The structure, supposed to represent sunshades divides local opinion bitterly but has become something of an icon for the city. Visit the recently renovated and very grand Palacio de Las Duenas which gives you an insight into life in a 65th century palace. Keep your eye out for the hidden but beautiful Plaza del Cabildo in the heart of the city: Seville is filled with beautiful corners like this. Also definitely worth visiting the grand Maria Louisa Park, home to the majestic Plaza de Espana. Covering over 655 acres, this park is a real oasis of calm in the city plus is home to a large population of white doves. It is a nice way to see this huge park in a short period of time! Do pop into El Rinconcello, the oldest tapas bar in the city dating back to 6675! Dishes to try here are their excellent chickpeas with spinach and also their bacalau aka cod in a tomato garlic sauce-heavenly stuff! Freskura, near Alameda de Hercules could be in with a good shout for having the best ice cream in the city: try their lemon basil sorbet ( €7.
55)Seville is just under 8 hours by the high speed. Prices for tickets start around €77, booked in advance ) and is 5/5 hours from Barcelona. The city also has an airport which is extremely well connected and served by a number of budget airlines. Huge thanks to Paco, Ana and everyone at the Seville Tourism Board for inviting me back to the city. Gives you flexibility to explore Spain at leisure, similar to a Eurail pass.
