“Un color especial”

Plaza de España

We were welcomed to Sevilla with a beautiful sunny weather that, unfortunately, didn’t last very long. The wind and rain wiped out the hot summery vibe every tourist expect from the Andalusian capital. Nonetheless, it didn’t keep us from fully enjoying the city center and its monuments, all covered in our coats and scarves.

I’ll always remember when, last year, I contemplated the Plaza de España for the first time. Oh, what a breathtaking architecture! What a peaceful atmosphere, enveloped by water sounds and horse steps. Coming back means a lot to me, as I have special affect for this city. I couldn’t be more amazed by the skyline views from the top of La Giralda, the ancient minaret of the Cathedral of Seville, which, by the way, is really worth the stop. Among the must-explore in Sevilla are the Gardens of María Luisa, adorned with orange trees (by the way, those oranges are only good to look at, not to eat!), the Constitución Avenue, and, on the other side of the Guadalquivir, the neighborhood of Triana. Last but not least, I remember how beautiful was the gold and white bullring last time I visited the city.

Not far from the Cathedral, hidden in a courtyard, we halted at Habanita, mainly because it served vegetarian and vegan food (alongside some meat options). We were surprised to taste banana ‘meatballs’ in tomato sauce! But, overall, the legume stuffed Piquillo Peppers and the Falafels with Hummus were pretty decent. Although, it should be noted that most of the vegan restaurants are closed on Sunday in Sevilla, which made us have lunch at Starbucks the next day: not particularly the local food we were looking for…

Otherwise, we had a wonderful time in Sevilla, hopefully coming back to witness the April Ferias next year!
