December in Seville: The holiday season in Seville officially is underway for the first weekend of December. On the evening of Friday the 3rd the holiday lights are turned on. The weekend begins with the Muestra de Dulces de Convento in the Alcazar, where you can sample and purchase hooliday sweets made by nuns in the convents in and around Seville. Then on Tuesday night the celebration for the Dia de la Inmaculada is in full swing as los tunos gather in the Plaza del Triunfo to sing to the statue of the Virgin Mary. For shopping there are several holiday markets, such as the Feria de Belen selling just about everything you need to build your own nativity scene! The Feria del Libro Antiguo has plenty of books on sale in Plaza Nueva until early December. Then the Mercado de Artesania takes its place in the same plaza, offering jewelry, crafts and more from artists around the Spain. This is a great place to find an original gift. The football season is also in full swing, and there is always a flamenco show to see! Finally, outside of Seville the exhibit Matisse y la Alhambra is worth a visit when in Granada.

For other ideas, take a look at my side trips section for destinations close by, or the: "85 Things to do in Seville" for some fun. The list is growing, so soon it will hit 101 things! I've launched a new Sevilla WiFi map, plus a hotel and hostal map which gives you more options than you will find on any other site! Finally, new individual establishments have been added in the hostal and hotel pages. If you're looking to rent an apartment, or find a hotel in Seville, check out the recently updated sections.

Monthly Photo
Real Betis - Real Madrid
Past Photos of the Week

Real Madrid came to town over Valentine's Day weekend, but there wasn't much love for the team in Seville. Entering as heavy favorites - Madrid has been dominating the league, far out in front of Barcelona, while Betis is at the other end of the table - the game turned into a nightmare for Real, and happiness for us beticos. Thorsten, my coworker, took some photos. Above you can see Palmerín, the Betis mascot, shaking hands with Raul before the start. The good thing about Seville is the two first division teams (well, the good thing is Betis), so you can catch a match just about every weekend: Consult the Betis and Sevilla combined home match schedule.

From money to mobile phones, accommodations to the sites, or technology and the internet, you can read a little about it all here. You'll find some useful information as well as a few of my general observations on life and culture in Sevilla to help you understand some of the quirks and differences of life here. I've also included sections on tourist info such as transportation, shopping, nightlife (la marcha), hotels and hostals as well as where to buy food when you're sick of eating out.

Dining out in Seville

I frequent many tapas bars and restaurants in Sevilla, hoping to discover a few surprises hidden in the back alleys. I've also added international and vegetarian options. And with some recent work, the sections have been reworked and launched, with even more informatio. Soon to come: some photos and helpful tips on eating out. I've broken down the restaurants in Sevilla by neighborhood, but even if you don't know Sevilla that well you shouldn't have any problems locating these places with a map! And of course I've added a number of new places to eat and there are now over 60 bars and restaurants, from places for locals only (until you show up!), tapas or a complete meal.
