It has a great climate, it is home to some of the most delicious food in Spain, it smells like orange blossom and you will really enjoy the locals who will live up to your expectations of the Spanish stereotype really well – eating tapas, dancing flamenco and going to bullfight. Seville is also home to possibly the largest church in the world and resting place of the remains of Christopher Columbus.
