Despite the heat there are lots of good reasons to come to Seville in the summer time, and plenty of things to see and do when you’ve finished lounging by the pool or sitting in pavement cafes with a cold drink watching the world go by. And it’s a particularly good time to be here[…]
This year’s Bodegas Gonzales Byass tasting event for Tío Pepe en Rama 2016 was held on April 11th (lunes del pescaíto), at the Mercado del Barranco on Seville’s riverside. Although we weren’t too lucky with the weather, with the wind even knocking over a few glasses, master blender (and winemaker poet) Antonio Flores led us[…]
We Love Tapas had the opportunity for a visit to the recently opened Sea Market restaurant in the Avenida Eduardo Dato in Seville. We had been invited to attend a tasting of one of the most highly regarded, but possibly least known products of the sea – caviar. The tasting was hosted by Calvisius Caviar,[…]
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. From Palm Sunday (although because the processional timetable is so full some brotherhoods go out on the preceding Friday and Saturday) through to Resurrection Sunday the city virtually shuts down[…]
We Love Tapas and ELECMOVE created a very special collaboration a few months ago – the Cycle & Tapas Tour – offering an introduction to Seville on electric bikes followed by a delicious Traditional Tapas Tour. But it was only recently that the WLT Team got together with ELECMOVE to experience the electric bike tour[…]
We are pleased to announce that We Love Tapas Sevilla has been nominated as a potential winner in the Luxury Travel Guide 2016 Holiday & Tour Specialist Awards. UPDATE February 1 2016: We Love Tapas has won! Culinary Experience of the Year for Seville in the 2016 Holiday & Tour Specialist Awards!
Alternative shopping At this time of year with Christmas just around the corner Seville city centre is crowded with shoppers looking for the best presents they can find. But how can we make our loved ones happy while still supporting local businesses? Actually, there are plenty of options and we’ve come up with this little[…]
What does foodie heaven look like? We bet it looks something like this… It all happened this past weekend in Seville and of course we were there, eating and drinking non stop! There were 19 different food trucks from all over Spain with their delicious creations. To start we tried out our own local food[…]
Jerez de la Frontera is a short train ride away from Seville and is, of course, most famous for its local wine – sherry. While you are there you should not only visit one of the city’s many bodegas, but also do at least part of the “Ruta de Tabancos“. Tabancos are a type of[…]
amanitas cesáreas Autumn is here, even in Spain, and among the things this season brings with it are wild mushrooms. Country people have always gathered mushrooms for the pot at this time of year, but in Spain in recent decades harvesting mushrooms has become a popular weekend pastime, taking advantage of the temperate weather to[…]
As an observant visitor to our fair city of Seville, you may have noticed, on such diverse objects as lampposts, manhole covers, buildings and garbage trucks, among others, a little motif that seems to read NO8DO, except that the 8 is somewhat large, and often appears as if a little blurred. You may guess from[…]
Ferris wheels have been around as a fairground attraction for a long time now (the first was designed and erected by George Washington Gale Ferris for the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago), but over the last couple of decades they have become increasingly popular as a sightseeing aid for tourists, especially since the opening of[…]
For some people “cultural” stuff like art or historic monuments is what you do between eating and drinking and more eating and drinking. For others, it’s the other way around. But whichever kind of holidaymaker you are, you are likely at some point to find yourself in a museum. Seville has lots of these, covering[…]
Although there may be other “sherry style” wines, true sherries are those wines, and only those wines, produced in the area around Jerez de la Frontera in southwest Spain, or more specifically, those wines aged in the towns of Jerez, Puerto de Santa Maria, and Sanlúcar de Barrameda under the rules of the Consejo Regulador[…]
It’s often been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there’s no doubt that a good brekky (desayuno in Spanish) will set you up for a hard day’s sightseeing/lazing on the beach/shopping, or even, heaven forbid, w**king. In Spain, where the main meal of the day is lunch, rather than[…]
Updated: July 1, 2016 You may notice, or may have already noticed, as you make your way from bar to bar in search of tapas and a drink, that the word abacería (often antigua abacería) appears in some of the names in a way that suggests a particular meaning. But what meaning? On closer inspection[…]
classic vanilla & chocolate cone from Freskura Okay, this is hardly news, but summer in Seville can get pretty hot. Afternoon temperatures often reach 40ºC, the sun beats down from directly overhead, and only mad dogs and Englishmen are still out and about (I’m joking of course; the mad dogs are all indoors, where it’s[…]
Just an hour by train from either Sevilla or Malaga, Cordoba is one of a string of romantic Andalucian cities stretching across southern Spain. It was an important Roman city (you can still see, and walk across, the Roman bridge over the River Guadalquivir), but its glory days were in the 8th to 10th centuries,[…]
The meat of the Atlantic Bluefin Tuna (also known as Red Tuna in Spain) has long been a prized item in the gastronomy of Spain and the western Mediterranean. These majestic fish, weighing up to 200 kg (and definitely not a small round fish that fits neatly into a tin), normally live in the cold[…]
Light, cool and refreshing in the hot summer weather, gazpacho, the cold tomato soup of southern Spain, is nowadays well-known all over the world. It’s one of a family of tomato based cold soups that includes salmorejo and porra, as well as other local varieties, but the origins of these dishes actually goes back to before[…]
