In the southern recesses of Spain
lies the glorious city of Seville, a hotbed of culture, traditional culinary
offerings, must-see landmarks, and perhaps most importantly, the gorgeous Mediterranean heat. Being the capital of the Andalusia region, you can expect typical features such as medieval architecture, royal plazas and more tapas than you’d dare to eat
. You’ll be overwhelmed by the city
’s steady cosmopolitan and traditional combination, and all-round exuberant nature.
If you’re a bit of a sports
enthusiast and fancy a go on some of the local athletic offerings then you’re in luck around these ends. Not only are most resorts around the city
fitted with state-of-the-art gyms and a wellness
centres to preen and pamper after, but the surrounding region also has 15 golf courses
to test your swing at. Most of these courses include all the trimmings, from buggy hire, to bars and restaurants
to have a post-golf review over a drink or two. Even if you’re an armchair-athlete, Seville provides some excellent ways to see the city while keeping active; city bike and Segway tours are great ways to see the vistas in active fashion, and if you feel like sitting out on the physical exercise but want to watch, then Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan is great for an afternoon of football
You’re on holiday, so every resort’s staff are constantly endeavouring to make it easy for tourists to have a good time. Travels are minimal to everything you could possibly want out of a sunny city
holiday, with tourist attractions, landmarks, tapas bars and trendy restaurants all within walking distance from your luxury accommodation. An approximate 20-minute drive gets you from Sevilla airport to any one of the resorts around Seville, where you can enjoy luxury rooms or suites, five-star service, and incredibly authentic gastronomy
staying true to its Andalusian roots.
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
World-famous Genoese explorer Christopher Columbus is buried in Seville Cathedral. Passing in 1506, his remains were transferred several times between Valladolid to Seville, to the Dominican Republic, to Havana, and finally back to Seville after the Cuban independence in 1898. Columbus therefore travelled the seas for 300 years after dying.
