Seville is filled with numerous tapas and copas bars and restaurants. So much so you will be overwhelmed with the choice and probably much like me on my first visit... sway towards the touristy places and consequently the more un-traditional dishes.
Tapas originates from its direct translation: Tapa, meaning lid or cover. Regardless of which of the many stories you decide is most feasible, your focus will most definitely be on the variety of dishes rather than the fables of their origination.
The art of eating and socialising in Spain, promises the opportunity to share and try these small plates of food, whilst moving from place to place, as many tapas eateries will specialise in certain dishes. Seville in particular maintains its tradition more so than other cities in Spain, so food lovers should put it at the top of your list for your next destination.
