Seville see + do

Seville saw its golden age in the era of Columbus and his discoveries; all the riches that poured in during the 16th and 17th centuries paid for the churches, palaces, and squares that remain today. It still feels locked in that epoch, with occasional modern touches, such as the landmark Alamillo Bridge built by Santiago Calatrava for the 1992 Expo. Seville is deeply traditional and conservative—you will see Virgin images everywhere, and artistic taste remains with Murillo circa 1650—but it is also a city of celebrations, from the somber Semana Santa (Holy Week) to the rollicking Feria de Abril (April Fair). Tapas, flamenco, and Moorish architecture give you a whiff of its heady mix of Arab, Jewish, and gypsy culture.
