Southern Spain has a special charm. Its beauty, climate, his art. There are many cities that deserve special mention, but today we will talk about one of the major cities of Andalucía: Seville.

Sevilla is one of those cities that you just fall in love upon arrival. Ideally have enough days to go each and every one of its streets and visit every corner, well stay in any of the hotels Expedia. But, clearly, there 5 essential places you can not miss on your visit to Seville:

1. Cathedral and Giralda. The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See is one of the most visited buildings in Seville, but undoubtedly, its bell, more commonly known as the Giralda, is one of the icons of the city.

Begins 2014, and a year, I could not stay without publishing the list of best hotels in Spain. As always, I have taken into account the total rating Ratings Booking.com.

Same as last year, seems that more and more people prefer to stay at luxury hotels, romantic or rural rather than five-star hotels or chain. And that new hotels with an aesthetic and services each year arise manicured, and only with them makes you want to travel there to enjoy himself.

After a two week holiday in Spain, and I'm back in the UK. Y tengo depresión post-vacacional 🙁 . I admit I am a lover of England and surely I would not live in Spain now (and as things), but spend a week holiday, Spain is heaven. Sun and heat, Good and cheap food, even cheaper drinks, friendly and nice people… What more is needed?

As I mentioned in children post, this year I started my summer vacation in Cordoba, where I could see for the first time how fair is a typical Andalusian. The trip did not start too well. He had planned to go to the fair since March, and had bought my plane tickets for Saturday and get to see the cover lighting and fireworks, but few days ago the organization decided to change the opening night of Saturday to Friday, so I missed. I never get to understand why after publishing date of an event municipalities decide to change a couple of weeks before, as also happened last year with the Feria de Ponferrada Templaria.

Only those who live in the UK know how much you miss the sun during the fall and winter (in spring and summer and also, the truth :P), so we half a year thinking about the holidays arrive to escape to a sunny beach in time to make the best possible. I have only two weeks, so I've decided to split between Sun and Sea, and culture and folklore. The first week will be spent in Córdoba, enjoying their famous Fair of Our Lady of Health in Toledo, during the celebration of Corpus Christi, and the second week we will be putting in Torremolinos brown.

If you are still organizing your vacation and one of these plans you think palatable, read:

CORDOBA FERIA

The fair is held between 25 May and 1 June Fairgrounds in Cordoba El Arenal. Its 8 days that promise to be full of booths, Seville, rebujitos, Typical dishes and Cordoba “pottery” in which mounted. The best thing about the show is that, Unlike other, Most houses are public, so you can get to any of them without invitation. The later will be my first Andalusian feria, so I can not expect to wear a ruffled dress and learn to dance. Also, Aaron's family lives in Córdoba, so I'll have some excellent guides. You can find more information in blogs May Cordovan and Welcome to Lilliput. Read the rest of this entry »

Although 2011 Traveled a lot more and although this year I have stayed many outstanding places to travel, these are my favorite destinations among all that I have visited in this 2012:
