‘Seville maybe Spain’s fourth largest city, but it is a place where you can pick oranges from the trees and see open countryside from the center of town. Come in Spring if you can, when the gardens are drowned in birdsong and the air becomes intoxicating with the scent of jasmine and a hundred other blooms.’
