Seville has a delightful, laid back atmosphere, due in no small part to its hot, dry climate. The streets are lined with palms and orange trees and there are many attractive parks and gardens, making Seville the perfect relaxed city break destination. A Seville city break will inevitably be jam-packed with culture and history – it is the birthplace of the mythical Don Juan, and was the hometown of the painter Velazquez. The long Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula left indelible traces in Seville as in all of Andalucia. La Giralda, the tower of the stunning cathedral is the best-known of the remaining Islamic monuments.
The cathedral itself, once a mosque, is the largest church in the world, and houses the tomb of Columbus (although some say he is actually buried in Dominica). The local joie de vivre is perhaps most noticeable in the traditional tapas bar crawl that takes place most weekend evenings as people wander from tapas bar to tapas bar, sampling the speciality in each and washing everything down with a fino sherry or a cold beer.
