The passion and mystery of Seville, Spain

by WCC on September 29, 2012

in Europe

The southern side of Spain is full of contradictions. When roaming the streets of Seville, a gorgeous city full of ancient landmarks, palm trees and wafting flamenco music, you may notice a few things are done differently here. While many locals indulge on plates of cheese, bread and cured ham, many still boast slim frames. Kids often speak only when asked a question, but are included in a night out with the family, well past a normal bedtime. It’s rare to hear a please or thank you in coffee shops, but if you forgot your wallet the barista may just say to pay her back tomorrow. Men are respectful and friendly even though women are often scantily clad under the hot sun.

All of these things make Seville one of the most fascinating cities in the world. Steeped in traditions of Judaism, Catholicism and Islam, all of these ancient faiths have influence over the architecture and history. On the other hand, only steps from the cobblestones and gothic cathedral is a buzzing, modern metropolis that offers locals and tourists alike to dance the night away and find their Spanish “duende”, or soul. You can also venture across the Guadalquivir River to see the more rustic and residential area of town, full of small eateries, parks and stunning views of the lazy waterway.

So, where does one start after they get off the plane, boat or bus in this destination? Some would argue everything has to head straight for the cathedral in the old town. Called the largest Gothic church in the world, the outside is staggering and covered in intricate details. Inside, the city hosts many special events, masses and more that guests can attend. Experiencing the breathtaking Alcazar palace next door can’t be missed either for its Arabic inscriptions along the interior.
