A well-established favourite among foodies and flamenco fans, Seville is a delightful destination. Mudéjar palaces and baroque churches await down winding medieval lanes that are shaded from the midday heat by leafy citrus trees. After working up an appetite, head to the Moorish capital's historic centre to discover Seville's robust gastronomic offering. Tapas is best enjoyed in a crowded bar and, according to young locals, La Brunilda Tapas is the place to make a beeline for. When you've conquered the sights, take off on a day trip to the ancient Andalusian city of Córdoba.
