Seville Province, Spain

The city of full-blooded Sevillanos is rich with Moorish influence and Catholic ceremony, and filled with cathedrals, ornate palaces and foot-stamping flamenco clubs. Equally wild and untamed, the pristine beaches of the Costa de la Luz stretch for miles along the coast. Yet only an hour’s drive away, you can calm your heartbeat in the chestnut woods and sleepy pueblos blancos of the sierras.
