The Andalucia region is about as Spanish as it gets. The south of Spain is known for flamenco, bullfights, churros, sweltering heat and an amazing history of African/Moorish/Muslim influence. This can be felt (and we felt it!) throughout its grand monuments, the very buildings on every street, the dancing lights and rowdy passionate music well into the early mornings, and in the people themselves.
Poor Pammy was a little ill for the start of our Andalucia trip, so it was up to me to capture the first day’s/night’s festivities in Sevilla. I even managed to get amazingly lost looking for a pharmacy to get anti-dehydration stuff for Pam.
The Catedral in Sevilla is the largest (in terms of internal space) in the world.
The Alcazar is also gorgeous, and had gardens in a very organic Moorish style in which I thoroughly enjoyed getting lost.
We managed to catch the Feria in Sevilla – a flamenco festival that’s been going on for decades. It was a huge row of tents and music stages down by the glittering river.
The tents were bars, and every so often we’d be lucky enough to catch some live music and SPONTANEOUS FLAMENCO (*bliss!*)! Enjoyed two nights by the riverfront with our hostel buddies.
Thank you for the friends, music and flamenco Sevilla!
