They don’t call Seville the ‘Frying Pan of Europe’ without reason. This is a hot, hot, hot place, where the summer sun can beat down on the city with unrelenting ferocity, where the search for shade can quickly evolve from a search to a quest to a desperate adventure. Never has ice cream been more necessary, although you’ll have to eat it quickly, lest it melts and drips to the floor. Lucky for you, Seville has a host of great gelato options ready to provide sweet salvation.
Rayas is the most famous ice cream shop in Seville and rightly so. This place has been serving top tier desserts since 1980 with no end in sight, take your place in the queue and prepare for some magnificent gelato. There are loads of flavours, so follow your heart and prepare to return time and time again.
Opened in 1995, La Fiorentina has been pumping out top quality ice cream for the people of Seville ever since. This is ice cream for people who take their ice cream seriously, the professional’s gelato, the thinking man’s dessert, etc etc. Artisanal ice cream is still a growing sector in Seville, and La Fiorentina continues to operate well ahead of the curve.
The perfect mix of Italian knowledge and Andalusian innovation, Freskura bounded onto the ice cream scene in Seville in 2007 and hasn’t looked back since. Some seriously flavoursome gelato on offer here.
