Seville is peppered with establishments featuring live flamenco shows. 

Your Trip Mapped Out

SEVILLE Best for flamenco; Andalucia’s fiery capital city is a place of twisting lanes, shady squares and unrivalled architecture – but it is flamenco that brings it to life.

JEREZ Best for Sherry; The centerpiece of the region’s sherry Triangle, Jerez de la Frontera is home to more than 20 bodegas, most of them open to visitors.

SIERRA DE GRAZALEMA Best for walking; The rugged mountains of the Sierra de Grazalema hide peaks, valleys and gorges and pretty villages, making them perfect walking territory.

TARIFA Best for beaches; Tarifa has some Spain’s best beaches, with miles of white sand facing south to Africa; add to this whale-watching trips and a pretty old town
GRANADA Best for architecture; The capital of Islamic Spain until the 15th century, Granada is a city of historical treasures presided over by the incredible Alhambra Palace.

ALPUJARRAS Best for hilltop villages; Las Alpujarras, a line of valleys along the Sierra Nevada’s southern flank, is home to los pueblos blancos, Spain’s beautiful ‘white villages’.
