2/5 Seville

Let the impressive architecture of Seville take your heart by storm. This southern Andalusian city is one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the country and particularly popular for a family city break with its charming tiny alleys, white-washed buildings, cobbled streets with overhanging wrought-iron balconies, and quaint orange and lemon coloured houses.

Start your architectural tour in the Jewish Quarter of Barrio de Santa Cruz before walking along the Guadalquivir River, the fifth longest river in Spain. Next, cross the bridge to the ancient gypsy quarter of Triana, famous for its ceramic and tile workshops. Seville's cultural history has influenced its architecture with Islamic Moorish and Arabic styles so don't miss out on both La Giralda, a Gothic cathedral with an Islamic minaret, and the Moorish palace of Real Alcázar.

Spend a day at the Metropol Parasol, a modern 2012 award-winning wooden structure, housing markets, bars, shops and even an archaeological museum, keeping the whole family happy.
