The vitality of Andalusian culture, the power of its imagery, has spilled out over its borders and come to represent Spain as a whole. Its song and dance, its flamenco dresses and horses, its temperament and talent for spontaneous joy are seen as quintessentially Spanish. This heritage is shared by all eight of Andalusia’s provinces, but in Seville it blazes out like a beacon. Which is why no visit to Seville would be complete without the strum of guitars, the handclapping, impassioned voices and foot stamping of a flamenco performance in a Triana tablao. They are as much part of Seville as the clickety-clack of castanets or the swish of a hand fan opening. Seville’s culture has been shaped by the mixing of influences.
This is the Seville we want to share with you. Seville as an aristocratic melting pot. The Seville of Nasrid Palaces, with their courtyards and fountains, horse-drawn carriages and English dinner services. Of exclusive craftsmanship and flamenco’s duende.
