Flamenco, flamenco, flamenco! Very pleasant city with relaxing atmosphere and joyful people, where it’s nothing strange to see kids playing on their own or a kid waiting parents in front of the supermarket. The biggest gothic cathedral is the one in Seville, and it’s also the third biggest in the world, on the UNESCO list.
