Maria D.

Sevilla, Spain

Welcome to my personal page. My name is María, I am 37 and deeply passionate about my city.

I love music, dancing and walking around the streets of Seville, it has a special magic in every corner, great history, culture throughout the years. I invite you to take a stroll through this magnificent old city in order to know every place.
I take pride of my work.

I also love cooking, in Spain we have a very rich gastronomy, that is why I offer you the gastronomic tour and class. I hope you to encourage to know more about our culinary culture!I consider myself a good cook and a lover of all of our plates! I prepare meals in a famous market in Seville.
I love bike tours because is the best way to know Seville in less time. The city is very suitable for riding a bike, it has available areas for it, so it is safe and funny.

THE CITY
Seville is one of the few cities that immediately and completely fulfils the expectations of visitors. It reflects everyone's first mental of Spain, bullfights, bodegas, wrought-iron balconies, fountains, moorish arabesques, ceramic tiles, flamenco. . .
It is the blinding colours of Seville, more than anything else, that set it apart. The ever-present blue sky remains deep blue, rarely dissolving into the summer haziness of the Mediterranean coast. Much of the city is shaded by orange trees, their leaves remaining emerald green all year round. The oranges themselves provide additional speckles of colour during the cooler months, and towards the end of March the voluptuous scent of their blossom duels with, and defeats, the heavy perfumes favoured by the travellers.

FLAMENCO.
Flamenco music was developed by Triana Gypsies. It arose from the result of the miscegenation of natives, Moorish's, Jewish and Gypsies that was in the city. In this neighbourhoods we can delight with his legacy permeated in its streets.

My tours include Santa Cruz Quarter, San Lorenzo neighbourhood, Maria Luisa park or a "market-morning tour" throughout the old town . But if you like, I can design a tour according to your preferences.

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a lovely tour of Seville cathedral and Alcazar with Maria. She is very knowledgeable and spoke interestingly about Seville's fascinating history. Maria is also generally very friendly and gave us excellent tips for things to see and places to eat later. Thank you Maria!
