The Guadalquivir River rushes along the outskirts of Seville’s old city. The city is filled with charm and a beating heart in its history and heritage. Classic medieval buildings, from the Giralda tower to the Alcázar, decorate the historic quarter. The alleyways of Barrio Santa Cruz wind around the neighborhood like a maze that offers luscious aromas and secluded niches to hide away from the sun. A private transfer meets you at the airport and takes you to your lavish accommodations.
Your quaint boutique hotel is situated in a classic whitewashed building. The cobblestone courtyard gives you a touch of the countryside and the rooftop pool offers a view of the surrounding city. When the sun drifts beyond the city you will meet your guide in the lobby. Your guide is also a flamenco expert and will lead you through the history and steps of the treasured dance. Flamenco is filled with passion and focused on desire.
It began with just an arduous cry and developed an intoxicating rhythm and captivating dance. Each step and wave of the arm tells a different story about the song, the singer, and the dancer. You come to the flamenco show. The steps are quick and fluid. People clap quickly to create the beat. Tapas come to your table and the restaurant is filled with the luscious aromas of cocido andaluz, a dish of chickpeas and vegetables in a single hot pot.
