As anyone who has been to Spain will already know, when it comes to food the pig holds a special place of affection in the hearts of the Spanish (if you can excuse a rather mixed metaphor).

Typical Triana courtyard Triana is the neighbourhood of Seville across the river from the old walled city, and is regarded by many Trianeros as a completely separate entity, historically, the home of Gypsies, sailors and other groups from the metaphorical wrong side of the tracks, and it retains something of that atmosphere today, with strong Read more about Day Trip to Triana[…]

In a country better known for its wine, and where many visitors arrive looking to join the locals in a glass of sangria (and for the moment, at least, I’m going to leave aside all the misconceptions involved in that one), the importance of beer may come as a surprise. I mean, it’s just beer, Read more about Beer O’clock[…]

Semana Santa (Holy Week) is Spain’s major annual religious extravaganza, but nowhere is it celebrated on a scale, or with such fervour, as in Seville.

You may guess from Read more about Sevilla | NO8DO[…]

In Spain, where the main meal of the day is lunch, rather than Read more about Malaga | Best Breakfasts[…]
