Find out – or reminisce – about the enticing blend of medieval and moorish architecture in the Alcazar and the art-deco splendour of the Plaza de Espana. Take a little tour of highlights at the Museo de Bellas Artes or the tapas restaurants in the city centre. Hear what writers who travelled to the city had to say about its food, its Arabic roots and its bullfighting traditions.
