WHERE YOU'RE GOING
At just a stone’s throw away from the African shores, Andalusia is where the Spanish and Moorish cultures meet and live in harmony. Cities full of character were born out of a fortunate mix of the Spanish lively spirit paired with the Moorish creativity. There is no wonder that iconic symbols such as the fiery flamenco and the mouth-watering tapas are deeply rooted in Andalusia. Of course, it’s not just the cultural colour of the region that makes it rich. From the golden sands of the Mediterranean and Atlantic beaches in the south, the mountain landscape dominates the north. There, lush forests, diverse flora and fauna and rare species such as the Iberian lynx have found home, protected by the numerous National Parks which make Andalusia one of the best preserved regions in Spain.
"Eat when the locals eat - most restaurants won’t open until 8.30 pm at the earliest and locals can turn up for dinner at 10.30 pm or even 11 pm especially at the weekends! Kitchens for lunch open between 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm remaining open until 4 pm or later."

Pace your tapas
Take your time with your tapas, don’t order it all at once and share with your fellow diners. The dishes are meant to be ordered little by little, pairing each tapa with a drink.
Consider an extra night
With so much to discover in Seville you may wish to consider an extra night so you can fit it all in. It's worth noting that a visit to Royal Alcázar of Seville takes at least half a day.
Wear comfortable shoes
The historic centres are mostly pedestrian only zone so you’ll no doubt be doing a lot of exploring through the cobblestone streets on foot. Comfortable shoes are a must!
Avoid bread charges
Bread is often added to the bill and ranges between 1 and 2 euros per table. If you don’t want bread brought to the table make sure you state ‘sin pan por favor’
