We always dreamed of a house full of things we’d picked up from travels around the world, so you bet we’re paying attention to souvenirs no matter where we are. These are your best bests for memorable artefacts from Seville. Old
Bullfighting has long played an important part of local Andalusian culture, and while we could talk all day about the ethical problems it brings up, we aren’t about to deny the magnificent artistry displayed in its promotion from long ago. There is an undoubted elegance to old bullfighting posters, and plenty can be found in and around Seville.
The courtyards of Seville always seem to be lit up with ceramic tiles of different colours, which isn’t surprising considering the long ceramic history of Seville. Pick up some to take home and give your HQ a Seville-sort of feel.
We’re guilty of getting the words ‘souvenirs’ and ‘booze’ mixed up from time to time, so of course we’re going to recommend some alcohol. Andalusia is famous for its oranges and its wine, and two plus two definitely equals four. Look out for some delicious orange wine in the shops of the city.
Anything and Everything Flamenco
Nothing screams ‘Andalusia’ more than flamenco, and anything and everything to do with the traditional music-centred art-form makes for a great souvenir, gift, or both. Better yet, why not take in the live flamenco experience and then head out to pick up a souvenir or two?
We do love ourselves a postcard, but the whole genre is quite generic at times. Not so when 4photos are involved, and the group’s polaroid postcards take a favourite form and add extra layers of class to it. Think of them of postcards, but better, and we’re more than happy to say that.
