Holidays in Seville

Seville is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. But if you’re not really a city guy, we suggest that after a couple of days in town you complete your trip with an alternative itinerary that will allow you to discover other less well known sights and experiences that are well worth it.
First, we will visit the Sierra Norte de Sevilla looking for a bit of fresh air. The Sierra Norte is located on the Sierra Morenamountains, where we will discover a totally different landscape: oak woods, rivers, mountains… even trout! In the shadier areas you will discover pine and chestnut woods, in the sunnier areas “dehesa”, sparse oak woods where the Iberico pigs roam eating their “bellotas”.
The Natural Reserve of the Sierra Norte is a beautiful place for nature lovers.The two main villages in the area areConstantinaandCazalla de la Sierra, where we can find some nice cheap rural hotels or even campings to stay. From one to the other we’ll find one of the most beautiful walks in the area: you should take the Los Castañares trail, an incredible walk under the shade of the cork oaks and chestnuts. Once you reach the Hueznarriveryou should follow the “El Molino de Corcho” trail, a fresh and relaxing walk along the river, where we might even catch sight of the otters andheronsor otherwise just enjoy the exuberant vegetation.
If you are in for a little more action, you must try some mountain climbing at the “Cerro delHierro”, an impressive geological monument near San Nicolás del Puerto, where spikes seem to emerge from the earth. Rappel, climbing and speleology are all on the menu! Don’t forget to visit the caves and the natural pool of Alanís and there’s also some great trout fishing in the Hueznarriver if you want to give it a try.
The villages are picturesque, the people friendly, and the food is just great! You must make time to discover the gastronomy of the area. The meat is the star of the menu, specially the Iberico pig meat including all the cured varieties starring the well knownIbericoBellota ham (also try the “salchichón” and “chorizo”) and the cooked meats (secreto, lagarto…) which are incredibly tasty. The other meat speciality is based on game, either roasted or stewed. If you visit in the autumn, you will also find a great variety of mushrooms, that are greatly appreciated by the specialists (note the “Alamo mushrooms” and the “gallipiernas”).Other traditional dishes from the area are the “migas” (bread crumbs seasoned with garlic, and Iberico meats), gazpacho, the wild green asparagus and what they call ”tagarnina” a very savoury green that grows wild in the fields and is put in the stews or eaten with eggs. As for drinks,we are in for some quite strong staff: the typical thing in this Sierra Norte are the home made anisettes andliqueurs (“aguardientes”), tremble Tequila!!These are usuallydrank with sweets or dessert: try the deliciouspestiños, flores, gañotes, alfajoresor almond tarts, behind which you might guess a certain Arab influence.
This will make for a nice two days out of Seville, really complementing the mandatory visit to the city of Seville. If you are tired after so much sightseeing, they offer some additional fun!
