Seville has a special colour, like the famous song says, but also it has different feelings that helps the visitor to discover the reason why this city is one of the most visited and appreciated in Spain.
In our city, the orange blossom smell that arrives between April and June spread a fresh and sweet aroma around the streets on the city centre. It is a very nice experience when you are walking down the streets in Santa Cruz quarter with the company of this particular smell characteristic of our city.
This is the predominant colour of the main palaces and monuments on the city. It is a warm colour that you can find on the arena at the La Maestranza bullring. This albero colour is combined in squares and buildings with the white colour characteristic of cities and towns in Andalusia. At night, under the lights of the lampposts, the city burns in colours inviting the visitor to try a tapa with some fresh wine on a terrace on a hiding square of the quarter.
Our hotel wears this dress of albero colour that gives you a clue of the place that you are.
Andalusian gastronomy is very rich and Seville is known for the good food. The most delicious flavors can be found at the tapas bars that offers the typical potatos omellette, salmorejo with ham or ensaladilla with prawns between others that always should go with the company of a good wine or a very cold beer. Today, what is very popular is what is called gastrobares where they mix the traditional ingredients and the proper high kitchen techniques. This establishments are promoting the creation of gastronomic routes very interesting.
Two Charming Squares in Santa Cruz Quarter
