Enjoy a Food and Wine Short Break Tour in Seville. Seville is all about eating tapas in a crowded bar or seeing out the end of the day over a drink on a busy plaza.
Seville the capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia. Its Old Town, has three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Alcázar palace complex, the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies. The Seville harbour, located about 80 kilometres (50 miles) from the Atlantic Ocean, is the only river port in Spain.
Enjoy three nights in this fantastic city, in some of Sevilla´s most charming hotels: You will have the chance of choosing between staying in a 4* or 5* hotel.
Enjoy a full-day excursion to the Sierra of Aracena: Aracena is considered one of the most emblematic towns in Huelva province. The town is characterised by the typical Andalusian architecture, featuring whitewashed houses and buildings, which create a spectacular contrast with the green lands and mountains that envelop the city.
The origin of the name “Aracena” is uncertain, but it might be related to the Hispano-Arabic centre of Qtrsana, or else to Aretiena, which was the name of a wealthy landowner when the Romans ruled the area.
Do not miss El Museo del Jamón de Aracena (Ham Museum of Aracena) which consists of 7 rooms which trace the history, cultures and traditions surrounding the famous Iberian pigs.
You will also visit Jerez. The famous word Sherry comes from “Sherish”. That’s the name that the Muslims gave to the city of Jerez, as we know it today. Sherish was one of the most important towns of Andalusia towards the last stages of the Muslim occupation, when it experienced an important growth.
Thanks to its wine, “jerez” or “sherry”, the equestrian tradition, the bulls, flamenco and motor-racing, this Andalusian town’s name has been known far and wide for many years. Tio Pepe/ Gonzalez Byass (Jerez de la Frontera), produces the most recognizable Fino in the world under the Tio Pepe banner.
Just to the south, there’s the Alcazar de Jerez, once a frontier of the Islamic kingdom, its thick city walls built to keep the Christians out. They didn’t and, in 1264, the overlay of monasteries, palaces and churches began. This fortress, home to caliphs then Christian governors, its mosque converted into a chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary, says it all.
