excursions from seville and cooking schools seville

by mioamoreunico

I will be going to seville to study spanish for the first 2 weeks of may 2010. I would like to take a day trip at the weekend to jerez and cadiz , can anybody recommend a good tour company? I would also like to take some cooking classes , any recommendations? Are there any bull fights on in may ? All I can see is a schedule until april.

Many thanks for all your answers and help!

I have no knowledge of a tour but it is quite easy to head south from Seville using the train or a bus. The train is very good and you can reach Jerez in around one hour and then you can decide on what activity you want. Maybe visit one of the Sherry bodegas? Or if on a Saturday look around the older part of Jerez together with the shops in pedestrianised Calle Larga.
From Jerez to Cadiz is also easy on the train about one hour again and there are local CERCANIAS trains that shuttle back and forth from Jerez to Cadiz.
If you speak speak Spanish then a tour is good because I assume they will be aiming for the Spanish audience.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

Tapas

by doogienj

One of my favorite things about Sevilla was the food. I you like to explore and try new foods in small portions, then Tapas is for you.

Most restaurants in Sevila serves tapas both for lunch and dinner. In addition to the small Tapas size you can order the dishes at 1/2 or full dinner size.

I preferred to keep them at Tapas size and order more of them. I would usually point to something on the menu, not having a clue what it was. Or ask them for what they specialty was. My fondest memory of Sevilla was just walking the streets and beeing surrounded by art, culture, and history.

I love seeing how the city came to a complete halt during siesta hours.

History of the Catedral

by Carmela71

The Cathedral of Seville is located next to the Great Mosque of the XII century and conserves the alminar (Giralda)

The mosque was converted into a catholic church when it was conquered by Fernando III in the 1.248.

On the 1.401 they decided to build a new temple, and one said " Lets do a church so big that all that can see it may think we are crazy ".

Actually is the biggest gothic temple in the world and the 3rd biggest cristian temple after Saint Peter at Vatican and Saint Peter at London

Friendly law officers

We have a custom in our family which was begun by our daughter Tal. In each and every country we visit we greet some of the local police and take our photograph with them, these are the people who are keeping us safe.

Learn to dance Sevillanas

by fairy_dust

Sevillanas are a Spanish folk dance similar to flamenco and though they originated in Seville, they're popular all over Andalucia. At the Feria de Abril, they're danced everywhere (and their music is heard non-stop) - in casetas, in the streets, etc. They're also danced at other ferias in Andalucia and at the Rocio pilgrimage. They have a set choreography and most Andalucians start learning them as children. They're a partner dance and usually danced by either a man and woman, or two women, but I've also seen them danced by a flamenco dancer alone, or by groups in a circle (I also tried out the circle thing - it was fun!). Some people say that the grace and movements of Sevillanas are supposed to imitate bullfight moves, and a flamenco teacher once told me that it was also used as a "flirting" dance for young guys and girls.

The lyrics in Sevillanas music are mostly about Seville, the feria, the Rocio pilgrimage, love, etc. They can be played in different styles too - flamenco guitar, orchestra, drum and flute (especially popular in pilgrimages), etc.

If you're in town for the feria, it is totally worth it to learn to dance Sevillanas (even if it takes a while to learn them). I had learned in Salamanca in 2003, but got to perfect them in Sevilla just in time for the feria. I feel that a day at the feria is not complete without dancing Sevillanas at least once. Pretty much every dance school in Seville teaches them, and sometimes you might even see ads for lessons in the weeks before the feria.

Day 5

by into-thin-air

Walk to Monesterio -- 20.7k -- refugio

Nice start to the day on old walled drove roads but the second half is a bit marred by motorway construction

Again no lunch or water stops so be prepared !!
