Magical atmosphere, Sevilla
Anyway, Seville is a monument itself, so i you have time enough i recommend you to have a look at the complete list of monuments and museums (timetables and prices included and some links)
Sevilla is special for me as i was living (9 years) and studying my degree there. So, I´ve got a lot of memories.
Perhaps, the fondest memories are:
The happiness of people. They work to live.
The beauty of Santa Cruz District.
A very intense Nightlife.
The atmosphere of the city when Semana Santa and Feria holidays. Unique in world.
The image of Gold Tower seen from one of the several bridges of the City.
Arabic spirit of its arquitecture.
Sevilla is a magic city. People are always happy and talking about either one out of two things: football or bullfighting.
The town is an easygoing one. No rushes, no hassles, beatiful buildings everywhere. The Giralda taking command of the view, just as predicted in the brochures.
Favorite thing: For all its important monuments and fascinating history, Seville is universally famous for being a joyous town. While the Sevillians are known for their wit and sparkle, the city itself is striking for its vitality. It is the largest town in Southern Spain, the city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro.
I have to defer to Krystynn's page here. I read the page before I went, and did just about everything she suggested. La Giralda, the Cathedral, Flamenco dancing, it was all very
memorable. Seville is unique and beautiful.
Sevilla is an old town full of charm and contrasts. There are some visits you mustn’t miss: cathedral and its bell-tower (Giralda), Alcazar and its garden, Maria Luisa park and plaza de España. Look for the courtyards full of flowers! Most of the monuments are Mudejar style, i.e., christian monuments made by christians and islamic craftsmen.
Fondest memory: Alcazar
Favorite thing: It is absolutely forbidden to leave Sevilla without trying sangrias from various bars and restaurants in the city! Try to look for ones that are made in-house; some of the ones that we had tasted like they were made with a mix rather than almost from scratch.
Favorite thing: Sevilla is a great place to go with a significant other, especially if you're looking for something more low key and less glitzy. It is a romantic place that moves at a slow pace, and we were only there for about 2 days.
You absolutely have to go to the Alcazar and to the Giralda (to just speek of sites).
-Bars: las Columnas, C./Mateos Gago
-Pepe Hillo C./Arenal
Partying: During the winter: Plaza San Salvador
During the summer: Down by the river
Fondest memory: I miss most all of the inhabitants of Sevilla, the parties, the siesta and the nice climate
Favorite thing: There's a great deal to do in Seville apart from seeing the sights, partying all night and betting on corridas (bullfights). Cycling around town is an excellent way to explore the city. Attending a local Real Betis or Sevilla football (soccer) match is a great way to meet the local fanatics. Shopping for luxury items, clothes, arts and crafts and other goods is also a popular pastime. The colorful Thursday flea market (mercadillo) is well worth a visit. After dark, flamenco song and dance shows heat things up in Triana's smoky bars - steer clear of expensive, tourist-oriented tablaos unless you're looking for the Mickey Mouse version of Spain.
If you visit Seville in Spring, you will be amazed to see all those flowers not only in the parks but also on the balcony of every block!
Fondest memory: Even the wild flowers at the riverside are colourufl!
Favorite thing: Water and fountain are important elements in most of the famous architectures in Seville. Moving water makes the place much cooler and lively.
Fondest memory: One of the many fountains in Seville.
Fondest memory: Typical street scene in old quarter of Seville.
