“This was an excellent tour. We got our exercise plus a lot of good information on local San Jose sites and customs.”

Seville is considered one of the most beautiful and traditional cities of Spain; with its history, architecture, ceramic industry, tapas, and famous Flamenco dance being big draws for travelers. But it also has a modern side – and on this tour you’ll get to experience the perfect blend of both.

We’ll start our discovery of Seville in the Macarena district, named for the most famous Virgin in the city, and now a trendy area filled with alternative co-working spaces mixed with traditional artisan studios. We’ll visit a few studios to meet local artists and designers, see their work, and learn about what they do for the community. We’ll then visit Rompemoldes, a modern space full of studios where you’ll have the chance to learn glassblowing and flameworking techniques, or how to create a felted scarf or a decorative flower.

Next up, it’s time for a snack. We’ll stop in  Kök Tu Cocina, which bills itself as gastronomic atelier, where we will enjoy our first tapas dish and a glass of Spanish wine (vegetarian options are available). After refueling, we’ll compare some of the most beautiful churches in Seville: Santa Marina, San Luis, and San Marcos.

We’ll then make our way to the center of the city to enjoy the area’s impressive architecture, often hidden down narrow streets. Don’t worry, your guide will tell you where to look! We’ll also stop to check out “Metropol Parasol,” the biggest wooden structure in the world – a truly impressive sight to behold.

From architecture and epic wooden structures, we’ll head to the Triana district where it’s time to move to the music – Flamenco, that is. But Flamenco isn’t just a kind of music; for locals, it’s a way of life. You’ll hear a bit about the evolution of Flamenco from your guide before getting to experience it for yourself. Even if you don’t have much rhythm, we’re willing to bet you’ll be moved by the passion and the beat of Flamenco. In a beautiful studio, we’ll get to see a professional dancer training for her daily show, and if you’re feeling inspired – feel free to follow along with her steps.

Triana is probably the most authentic district of Seville, filled with wonderful ceramic shops, a vibrant local market, and many restaurants and bars serving some of the most delicious tapas in town. This area has a ton of character and it’s definitely a spot where you’re sure to feel like a local. After all that exploring, we’ll end the tour with lunch at Las Golondrinas, where they’ve been turning out traditional tapas for over 50 years.

After lunch, your guide can direct you back to your accommodations or offer tips on what else to see and do in Seville.
