Day Eight: Seville

August 8, 2006

Seville in Southern Spain has inspired many classic creative endeavors, serving as the backdrop for such memorable characters as Figaro, Don Juan, and Carmen. It’s easy to see why: the city’s history is filled with chapters written by the Romans, Moors, Jews, and Catholics, among others.

In the Catedral de Sevilla, the world’s largest church, you can find history of another sort: Christopher Columbus’s tomb.

Of course, for many, the heart and soul of Seville is the flamenco song and dance, whose influences are as varied as the city’s. Another Andalusian art form popular worldwide is tapas, which is not so much a type of food, but a way of eating.

“Little dish, big dish, it all ends up in the same place,” muses Orange Bear.

Seems another Sevillian gastronomic delight has captured Orange Bear’s, um, stomach: yes, the honey fritter.
