Many people consider Spain to be the fiery, intense, exotic core of Europe. And while the main attractions can be found in Barcelona, Madrid, and Majorca, there is another spot that will let you experience the essence of the country without the distractions of modern life.
This spot is Seville, a city located at the very south of Spain, dedicated to history, dance, and living life to its fullest.
Finding Your Way
One of the things visitors like the most about Seville is the fact that this is actually a big university town, which means most of prices have been adjusted to students.
For example, finding decent accommodation won’t cost you a lot compared to the rest of the country, as you can find hostel dorms for $20-25.
Hotel rooms start at $50, but will rarely go over $75.
On the other hand, the people of Spain are well known for the pride they take in their cuisine. A meal with drinks at a restaurant costs about $18-20, so it might be better to opt out for $7 street foods or shopping for groceries for $50 per week.
The Cultural Capital
Seville might not be the most exotic place in the country, but it most definitely puts the strongest accent on art, culture, and history out of all places in Spain.
For those looking for inspiration and awe, we recommend checking out the 500-year-old Casa de Pilatos, the XIV century Iglesia de San Isidoro church, and the impressive Cathedral of Sevilla.
In later hours, you can experience Spain for what it really is by visiting the Flamenco Museum in Seville. Here you can learn all about this country’s trademark dance while listening to its signature music.
