Travel Theme: “Seville”

Ancient cities have to move with the times or they risk becoming cut-out parodies of themselves, empty of life and meaning. Take Seville. For many years, this romantic city refused to budge from its default position of ‘old-fashioned is best’. While Barcelona and Madrid roared ahead in everything from interior design to trailblazing tapas, Seville was still caught up in a dream of courtyards with tinkling fountains and gypsy dancers. 

But something has changed. To visit Seville now is to feel a fresh breeze blowing through the sweltering streets. Contemporary art, design, fashion and food are gradually infiltrating the snoozy world of its historic old town.

Seville is horse-drawn carriages outside the cathedral, whitewashed houses and ice-cold sherry. But now it’s also East-West tapas, post-industrial brick, cutting-edge cocktails and street fashion.
