Wine tour and "tapas" through the city of Seville

INTRODUCTION
Seville has the largest old quarter in Spain and one of the three largest in Europe. Mostly of Arab origin,  it is an endless succession of labyrinthine streets, alleis, and squares, where the murmur of the water and the scent of the orange blossom make it a rewarding experience that is hard to forget.

Among its countless monuments include the cathedral of Santa Maria de la Sede de Sevilla in Gothic style, which has the largest surface in the world. The Alcazar, the Archivo de Indias, the María Luisa park, the Giralda, the old minaret of the Almohade mosque of the late twelfth century, or the Torre del Oro, also Almohade (twelfth century). They are all monuments that have earned for Seville the title of World Heritage City by UNESCO since 1987.

Genuine neighborhoods such as Santa Cruz, Triana or La Macarena offer endless bars and taverns where it is possible to savor their varied cuisine based on the Mediterranean diet, enjoy wines and beers, and of course, their tapas. It is not strange to be able to listen to flamenco live in one of the many local "tablaos" that exist in the city accompanied by a wine from Sherry or a "Manzanilla" from Sanlúcar.

Ruta de Vinos y Tapas por la ciudad de Sevilla

INTRODUCCIÓN
Sevilla posee el  casco antiguo más extenso de España y uno de los tres más grandes de toda Europa. De origen árabe en su mayoría, es una interminable sucesión de laberínticas callejuelas y plazas, donde el murmullo del agua y el aroma de la flor de azahar hacen que recorrerlo se convierta en una gratificante experiencia difícil de olvidar.

Entre sus incontables monumentos cabe destacar la catedral de Santa María de la Sede de Sevilla de estilo gótico, es la que cuenta con mayor superficie del mundo. El Alcázar,  el Archivo de Indias, el parque de María Luisa, la Giralda, antiguo alminar de la mezquita de origen Almohade de finales del XII, o la Torre del Oro, también Almohade (S.XII). Son todos ellos monumentos que le han valido el título de ciudad patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO desde 1987.


Barrios con sabor como Santa Cruz, Triana o la Macarena ofrecen un sinfín de bares y tabernas donde es posible saborear su variada gastronomía basada en la dieta mediterránea, disfrutar de vinos y cervezas, y como no, de sus tapas. No es extraño el poder escuchar flamenco en vivo en alguno de los numerosos locales “tablaos” que existen en la ciudad acompañado por un vino de Jerez o una Manzanilla de Sanlúcar.

Prada, as usual in his best mood


Prada, as usual in his best mood




Palacio de Canedo
It is at the Palace of Canedo where we find both the winery and vineyard acreage devoted to Prada with care to produce their wines.
This manor house is one of the best examples of palatial architecture Bierzo S. XVIII. Completely rebuilt by its current owner, Jose Luis Prada and his wife, Flor, both have managed to make the most of the building, making it a magical place, a resort with restaurant, rooms, shop, and of course, winery.

Ribeira Sacra, where Rome produced its wines

Ribeira Sacra, where Rome produced its wines



Sight from río Miño

The Ribeira Sacra term meaning " sacred shore " , and seems to come from Latin. And at the edge of the two most iconic rivers Galicia , the river Miño and Sil, this region is located between the provinces of Lugo and Ourense. The situation of their terraced vineyards , located on the banks of both rivers , and with slopes of up to 80 % make this land a paradise.
