Last week a survey published by travel review website Qype, which analysed 10,000 reports and reviews from users in 12 countries, awarded Seville five stars, its maximum rating. The website carries reviews of cities and establishments such as hotels and restaurants.
The favourite Spanish towns among European travellers were Madrid, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca.
The category in which Sevilla scored so highly was “global valuation”. Although it received fewer reports than other cities around Spain, its worldwide rating was extremely high.
The website has 2.2 million user reviews covering 166,000 towns and cities worldwide, and receives 25 million visits every month.
Favourite spots to visit in Seville as mentioned in the comments on Qype include the Alcazar, Giralda, Plaza de España, Torre del Oro and Casa de Pilatos. Restaurants recommended such as El Rinconcillo, the oldest tapas bar in Seville; club Buddha del Mar; and hotels Alfonso XIII (currently closed for refurbishments), and Las Casas de la Juderia.
And now… the answers from Thursday’s pictures post: the photos were (from top to bottom of post) Doñana Park Visitor Centre in Sanlucar de Barrameda (Cadiz), Playa de los Genoveses (Almeria), plaza in Marbella (Malaga), ceiling of Mezquita in Cordoba, salt marshes at El Rompido (Huelva), view from the Generalife Gardens (Granada), and Palacio San Telmo (Sevilla). Did you get them right?
