Marvel At The Royal Alcázar

While Paris has the Eiffel Tower, London has Big Ben, and New York has the Statue of Liberty, Seville has The Royal Alcázar! Its unique Moorish-style is a relic of the region's Muslim history, especially since the place used to be the residence of the Abbadid dynasty. Over the years, however, Castilian Catholics have since put their own artistic influence into the must-see attraction. Gaze upon the thousands of beautiful arcs, each as fascinating as the next. A maze of pathways and walkways give a peek into the opulence of Spanish-Arabic culture, one that you won't see anywhere else!

Visit The Cathedral of Seville

While you're still in the Santa Cruz district, don't forget to stop by The Cathedral of Seville.

Watch A Bullfight

Among other things, Seville is famous for its bullfights. People from all over the city and beyond gather at the famous Plaza de Toros to see the most prominent toreador's duel with the fearsome creature. And while it's an exciting spectacle, at times, it's even caused injuries to not only the bullfighters but also to the audience as well. You'd do well in exercising caution while you're here! Nevertheless, a bullfight is one thing you ought to see, at least once, while you're in Seville. Though it's become widely criticized nowadays, there's no denying its unique impact on Spanish culture.

Shop At Lonja Del Barranco Market

Andalusia is actually quite underrated when it comes to its cuisine. Some of Spain's most delicious dishes and most fascinating delicacies come from here. And if there's one place where you can get them at their finest, it's at Lonja Del Barranco Market. A haven for foodies on a budget, what you'll eat here is probably more authentic and, at times, more scrumptious than what you'd find in the top restaurants in the city. Even better, of course, is that they're cheap, allowing you to keep your dining costs at a minimum as you gorge on street food, sweets, and more!

Eat Some Tapas

While you're at it, you might want to eat some tapas too! You may not know this but tapas actually originated in Andalusia, the region where Seville is. Now, the delicacy has become a major signature in Spanish cuisine. You can eat it just about anywhere, from Barcelona to Fuengirola and more! However, there's no denying that the ones from where it originated would probably taste the best. And while Seville is only part of Andalusia—and probably not the city where it actually originated—the tapas here at still as excellent as ever! In terms of a place, the oldest tapas bar in the world, El Rinconcillo, would be a great choice!

There's a sexiness, a sensuality, and a passion in flamenco that would just hypnotize you in more ways than one. Even if you're not dancing it yourself, you'll still feel the heat. So much so you might even end up sweating just by watching!
