  • Cathedral and Giralda

    Sevilla Tourist Traps

    Giralda is an attraction for itself, in the marvel of the cathedral. It's easy to climb, because it has inclines instead of stairs, and they seem not too steep. That's right. But they are... long. Now imagine the sorrow I felt when, in my way down, we met a Japanese senior couple with him telling her, while resting a bit on his walking stick:...

    Benalmádena Tourist Traps

    Benalmadena is one of those southern Spanish "resorts" that has overgrown itself. I'm sure it was nice once. In the last 30 years or so it has grown to service a tourist industry, the wallets of which it now fleeces with monotonous regularity. It reminded me of being in a crowded, noisy, jostling, hostile nightclub where everyone has to join a...

  • Flamenco

    Sevilla Tourist Traps

    Even though the flamenco show is meant for tourists, it features excellent bailaores, guitarists, and cantaores. The food is acceptable. What is not acceptable is that our camera with more than 300 photos from Cordoba disappeared. My wife forgot it on the way out. Just as we arrived at the hotel, she realized she'd left it there and started to call...

  • Malaga.

    I was very disappointed about this town.The only thing I liked in Malaga was the Alcazaba. Originally this place was a fortress. During the half of the 11 century it was completely rebuilt and transformed into a Moorish palace. It was enlarged by the same king who built the Alhambra in Granada. Visit the Alcazaba and its gardens and do a daytrip...

  • Cueva de las Manavillas...

    Cueva de las Manavillas (Wonder Grotte) in Aracena: It is not a tourist trap at all, because it is worth a visit and you will not be dissapointed by the beauty of this cave. But it is the most famous tourist attraction in the Northern part of the province, which by the way is not very touristic.The accessto the cave is located in a picturesque...
