Accommodation ,parking the car ,in Seville

by M&P

We three, are off to Seville in early October 2008, "should be cooling down by then" we will be travelling by car and entering from Huelva's direction,
I thought that maybe Triana would be a good place to stay, we do not really wish, to drive around the city, as we've read its petty bad!
Can anyone recommend a Hostal or hotel?
I have spotted an apartment for 22Euros/each/night, but was wondering where we could park the car?
Wolud it be easy to walk to the sights?
Muchos Gracias

Re: Accommodation ,parking the car ,in Seville

Shalom, Shalom:
Sorry that I cannot recommend a hostel in Sevilla for you, we chose to stay in Carmona (about 30 kilometers east) and drive in.
But about parking.....There is a river that runs through the town and seperates it into two. The old town is adjacent to the river and there are several parking garages along that main throughfare. From there the town is easy walking distance. Write to the tourist bureau in Sevilla and they will send you a map that shows the parking garages.
We did drive around the city, it is not worse than any other big city that I have driven in, although if you do not use the parking garages, then parking can be an "adventure".
Have fun.
Martin

I parked my car in the city centre in such a parking garage - not because I did not want to use the car (I did) but because I wanted to have it at a safe place at night.

safe parking is a must. Seville is the only place in Europe where we have suffered a car breakin. If you are renting take all the insurances. We were fully covered for the damages.

The police in Huelva area blanket the expressway looking for tourists to ticket. Vehicles are unmarked. Fines must be paid in cash on the spot. If you do not have enough money to pay the fine, the police will happily escort you to an ATM machine.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

Visit the cathedral and La...

by fandango

Visit the cathedral and La Giralda.
The largest gothic edifice ever built, and one of the biggest cathedral at the world. Inside the cathedral you can see Columbus tomb (yes the discoverer of america),paintings from Spanish master painters (Goya,Velazquez,Zurbaran,Murillo,...), and a lot of amazing chappels.
La Giralda, is the symbol of the city, this tower was made at 1200 by the moorish, but christians in 1565, crowned it by a renaissance belfry with classical arches and a bronze orchestra of 25 bells.at the top of La Giralda is the GIraldillo, a bronze statue that represents the faith.
If you come to Seville, you must go up La giralda and enjoy the fantastic view.

Non-EU Luggage Claim at Airport

by Hopkid

If your travel to Sevilla originated in a non-EU country, you need to go to Lounge A (Sala A) to retrieve your luggage. Perhaps this would be more obvious to other travelers but my wife and I stood at the regular luggage claim for 40 minutes before realizing we were in the wrong place. Once the carousel stopped signally no more luggage would be coming out, we figured out where to go along with a few others.

As you descend into the luggage claim area, continue to make your way to the left and go past the luggage carts and back under the walkway from which you came down. You'll see the signs for Sala A leading you in that direction.

Orange Trees

by keeweechic

All around Seville you will see orange trees. These are not the usual sweet oranges that you eat but more a bitter or tart orange which is used in the area for making marmalade as well as in alcoholic drinks such as Grand Marnier, Curacao and Triple Sec.

The "myth" of Gazpacho

by betis1

Ditto on the above - many think gazpacho is everywhere. It generally is, but generally during spring and summer, and not very common in fall or winter. Many menus will even list "gazpacho en verano". Also, don't be surprised to have your gazpacho served to you in a glass instead of a bowl. This is more common in tapas bars. Some restaurants will server gazpacho in a bowl with guarnicion- little bits of green pepper, fried bread, ham and even hard boiled egg. And while gazpacho gets all the hype many people fail to ever try salmorejo - it's like gazpacho, but always served in a bowl, most often with bits of serrano ham. It's thicker and a bit sweeter than gazpacho.

Ronda - Prehistoric Cave Paintings

by yetist

You can see all kinds of towns full of architecture and ruins but if you want a once in a lifetime experience visit the cave outside of Ronda where you can see Paleolitiic Cave Paintings, Incredible Natural Beauty, and a cool retreat from the summer heat. The tour comes complete with gas torches to light up the cave and the guide is very knowlegable. I have a feeling this will be closed to the public soon so if you get the chance, this is one of the last places in Europe where you can see the real thing. The trip to the cave outside Ronda was one of the highlights of my trip to Andalucia. If you get the chance , go, you won't be disappointed. Theer are only 2 tours per day, at 1300 and 1600 and the cost is 6 Euro, well worth it. Here are a few more pics---
