The best things to do in Seville embody every Spanish cliché—and we're not mad about it. The spirit of Al-Andalus lives on in the sinuous alleys of the old town, the spellbinding palaces and secret courtyards, and even in the minaret-cum-bellower of La Giralda, the city’s much-loved symbol. The twenty-first century makes an appearance in the billowing parasols of Las Setas, Seville’s most extraordinary modern building, and in the chic boutiques and designer restaurants springing up everywhere. Linger over an ice-cold sherry at an impossibly photogenic old bar, with flamenco (of course) providing the soundtrack, and you are bound to conclude that, clichéd or not, Seville remains Spain’s most beguiling city.
