Seductive and hedonistic, the city of Sevilla, capital of Andalucia, in many ways embodies the romance of the region. First
choice for many visitors to the region, this is the brightest star in the Andalucian tapas firmament and has a post-reconquest
architectural heritage unmatched in the south, from the evocative Alcazar to the giant Gothic cathedral. Sevilla was the focal
point of the golden Age of Spanish painting, and many of the country's most memorable canvases are to be seen here. The city's
famed Semanta Santa processions are the largest and best known of the solemn Easter celebrations in Spain. Hard on its heels
though, the riotous Feria de Abril exemplifies many features of the other side of the Andalucian character.
