Seville is known as a stunningly beautiful city where plenty of tapas bar lure you away from the crayon architecture. Here, the locals are always on a hunt to eat something small, then perhaps twirl around a bar in a dance, and stroll over to another. Let’s take a round or two of its colorful outdoor canvases layered with some tapas in Seville.
As in the Northern city of San Sebastian, the vibrant tapas bar scene seduces to frequent resting and snacking. After touring the magnificent cathedral, the tiled avenidas and other colorful and shapely sights of Seville, a glass of Spanish wine feels so – hey, I can have a dance with this handsome Spaniard! No wonder that this Southern Spanish destination thrives – its history, blend of cultures and prevalent sunny weather, attract millions of visitors in all seasons. Beware though, the summer sun is scorching, so you better hydrate with plenty of aqua and keep the alcohol to more lame evenings.
You can try some more traditional, but it is more fun to adventure into the gourmet gastronomic fusion tapas. With so many styles, ambiences and price points, it is useful to look for advice from someone who has eaten at a great many of them as we did. Plenty of walking between makes such a hedonist pursuit a guilt-free pleasure.
I divided my guide to Seville’s tapas bars into three parts: Traditional Tapas Bars; Young and Cool Tapas Bars and Modern and Gastronomic Tapas Bars.
I hope you will find my favorite picks in each category helpful and you will roam through Seville as excited about its creative and inspiring food as I was! And I cannot wait to return.
