Secrets of Seville: from Tapas to Tapestries

Seville is a beautifully decorated box of delights, filled over thousands of years by Phoenicians, Romans, Moorish Sultans, and Castilian royals. Its brightest jewels are impossible to miss, and no visitor leaves without taking in the Alcazar, the Tower of Gold, or the St Mary of the See Cathedral. But there are many other, lesser-known gems embedded a little deeper into the quiet corners and daily rhythms of the city. This walking tour reveals
local fixtures and favourites across the four quarters that comprise the old town, from hidden courtyards to backstreet tapas bars. Our Sevillano guide – a true insider – leads you through layers of history coloured by the mosaics in the Palace of the Countess of Lebrija and Renaissance paintings in the Convent of Santa Paula, an esoteric landmark of Gothic-Mudejar architecture from carved ceiling to dimly-lit crypt. You’ll get a feel for how the past lives inside the present, meeting artisans who uphold the city’s signature traditions, like the professional flamenco dancer who sells dresses, shoes, and shawls specifically designed for her peers. You’ll eat like a local too, at two beloved taverns tucked away from the regular tourist circuit, and a classic pastry shop where the sweets are as sacred to Seville as any tower or tomb.
