Stamping ground

It's not an expression you hear often, but there are clouds on the horizon in southern Andalusia. A tourist poster come to life, Seville is famed for its searing sunshine, brutal bullfights and flamboyant fiestas, all set to a sound- track of flamenco guitars.

The first (and so far, only) time I saw fresh Seville oranges was at a market in France, when I was surprised by the price - the vendor was charging one euro (HK$10.50) for a single orange.

Juicy fruit

It's not easy to get excited about oranges. The fruit is a victim of its own popularity - it is ubiquitous throughout the year, even though its true season is the winter. It's only when we taste a particularly juicy, sweet and delicious one that we think twice about a fruit most of us take for granted.

Seville's main shopping zone comprises plazas Nueva, Magdalena, Encarnacion and San Francisco, with Calle Sierpes at its heart. The narrow, pedest-rianised street is packed with outlets selling conventional souvenirs as well as high-quality representations of modern, stylish Spain.

Revel in Seville

MENTION Spain and most people will think of flamenco dancers, bullfights, sunny beaches, seafood, and siestas. These exotic visions spring to life in Andalusia, the country's southernmost province, which attracts more than its fair share of the millions of tourists who visit the country every year.
