The alleged birthplace of tapas, Spain’s iconic small plates, the southern city of Seville might just be the best place to eat in the entire country. Here are some of our favorite foods and foodie experiences to help ensure a most delicious trip to Seville.

Must-Try Dishes
Just about every restaurant in Seville serves tapas—small servings of traditional dishes typically enjoyed over a drink—making it easy to enjoy a wide variety of flavors while in the city. No trip to Spain would be complete without trying jamon Iberico, acorn-fed ham raised in nearby Huelva (note that it’s illegal to bring it back to the US). Another hearty favorite for meat lovers is carrillada de cerdo, a slow-cooked pork cheek found in tapas bars all over town. The Moorish influence on Andalusia shines through in espinacas con garbanzos, a local comfort food of stewed spinach and garbanzo beans. If you’re looking for an afternoon snack, reach for a montadito, a small sandwich often stuffed with leftovers and consumed with a glass of jerez (sherry). For dessert don’t miss torrijas, a Holy Week sweet that’s similar to French toast or bread pudding.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Hit the pavement with a traditional tapas food tour and gourmet wine tasting to sample Seville’s best flavors.
  • Pair a tapas tasting with another Seville pastime—a fiery flamenco performance.
  • Learn about another favorite tipple with an immersive sherry-tasting experience.
  • Prepare traditional Spanish food under the instruction of a professional chef during a hands-on cooking class.
  • Take a food-themed walking tour to explore the culinary scenes of neighborhoods like Macarena, Alameda, and Triana.
