Seville Pictures, Andalucia, Spain
Spain’s costas are a corrupted, overbuilt and under-cultured mess but the traditional Spanish heart still beats in the southern province of Andalusia, especially in gorgeous Seville, a relaxed, spacious and cultured city that easily absorbs the tourist numbers that descend upon it. This is, without question, Bugbog’s favourite Spanish city (though we wouldn’t go there in mid summer! ).
Plaza Donna Elvira inside Barrio Santa Cruz, a delightfully labyrinthine old Jewish quarter.

A tapas bar in Barrio Santa Cruz.
The bugcrew were generally disappointed by Seville’s tapas (snack foods served with drinks). This city is supposed to serve Spain’s best tapas but we were rushed and did not check recommended places. Still, we ate tapas for 5 days and thought that Malaga’s offerings were much better, probably because the main diners in Malaga are locals but in Seville many are tourists.
