A Weekend in Andalusia
Starting the trip from Lisbon – Portugal, to Seville – Spain, the weather was perfect and the weekend would promise a great journey. It was not our first time in Seville, neither in the South of Andalusia. But as always, we like to report our journeys around the globe.
Seville is a hot city and you will almost never need a winter coat to keep warm. Situated in the center of Andalusia, Seville is a sun-blessed city. The city prides itself on having a classic Mediterranean climate. Summer is hot, autumn and winter cool and spring is pleasant, with mild temperatures accompanying the blossoming of flowers and orange trees. If you are looking for warmth and sunshine, then Seville‘s climate is perfect for you.
The city is deserted during August because temperatures can reach really high levels. There is not much rain and daily life is mostly restricted to early morning and evening activities, with most people staying indoors in the afternoon to avoid the unbearable heat. Life in Seville can be described as nightlife in August, as residents and visitors only take to the streets after dark because of the hot.
Sanlúcar de Barrameda
From Seville, we went to Sanlúcar de Barrameda known from gastronomy and unique location at the northern tip of the esteemed Sherry Triangle. We visit Sanlúcar de Barrameda during the famous horse event of Carreras de Caballos. Two horse-race meetings held almost every year since 1845, on the beaches beside the Guadalquivir estuary.
With just over 150,000 inhabitants and bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Cadiz is located very close to the Straits of Gibraltar. It is one of the oldest cities in Western Europe, having been founded by the Phoenicians in the year 1,100 BC. We leave you here, reinforcing to the lovers of history, beach, and sun that Cadiz, or even the all South of Andalusia, deserves your visit.
