Seville. Restaurant selection / Wybór restauracji

Food lovers should visit at least two restaurants in Seville: La Pepona Tapas is and art of taste as well as the presentation of the dishes. A salmon taken from underneath the smoke in front of our eyes is, up until now, one of the best dishes I have ever had a pleasure to taste. You need to ensure to order a basket of bread … Continue reading Seville. Restaurant selection / Wybór restauracji

Reales Alcázares de Sevilla. Miracles of Al-Andalus / Cuda Al-Andalus

In its days of glory (beginning of the XIIth century) Almohad califate reached as wide as from today’s Maghreb deep into the Iberian Peninsula. Arabs were ruling over Cordoba, Murcia, Grenada, Valencia and Sevilla. The Almohads named their Spanish lands Al-Andalus. Today, traveling through Andalusia, we can often see pictures which we remember from our trip to Morocco and North Africa. Besides Alhambra, a glorious … Continue reading Reales Alcázares de Sevilla.

El Puerto de Santa Maria. Osborne bull’s homeland / Ojczyzna Byka Osborne’a

Over 10.000 spectators can watch the struggles of the bulls with the toreadors at the Real Plaza de Toros.  As a result the ring in a city of El Puerto de Santa Maria is the 3rd largest corrida stadium in Spain (after Valencia and Madrid). At the same time, it protects itself well from entering into the XXIst century. Royal family’s loge seating stands out from … Continue reading El Puerto de Santa Maria.

Cádiz. Leap of faith / Skok wiary

Step by step we are climbing to the top of the tower. Strong wind is blowing at its peak. We are moving slowly, covering our faces from the grains of dust. Carefully, we are approaching the edge… It is not a screenplay for another part of Assassin’s Creed and we are not preparing ourselves for the leap of faith… We are in Cádiz. Torre Tavira … Continue reading Cádiz. Leap of faith / Skok wiary

Conil de la Frontera. Food lovers’ mini guide / Mały przewodnik dla smakoszy

For those of you who might use my advice and plan their holidays on the Atlantic coast I have prepared a (very) short guide on what and where to eat. The first and foremost thing to try here is a tuna fish. You can find it almost everywhere in Conil de la Frontera, disguised as many different dishes. There are plenty to choose from. I … Continue reading Conil de la Frontera. Food lovers’ mini guide / Mały przewodnik dla smakoszy

Fuerte Conil. A vegetable hotel / Hotel warzywny

Despite appearances, it is not an advertorial. I believe nonetheless that I should be appreciating and promoting the places, which deserve it. Hotel Fuerte Conil, where we are staying during our trip to Costa de la Luz clearly belongs to this category. Since my blog is not a booking portal, I will not show the hotel itself – only its garden. Hotel’s area drowns in flowers … Continue reading Fuerte Conil. A vegetable hotel / Hotel warzywny

Costa de la Luz. The Atlantic relaxation / odpoczynek nad Atlantykiem

Perhaps Torremolinos is the most popular city on the coast, but finding a free spot on a beach here is close to a miracle. Perhaps Marbella partially maintains the ambient of a harbor town with its beautiful beaches and a “sea” of attractions but the prices are effectively discouraging potential visitors. So how can we escape the noise, coil, concrete beach front, dozens of mongers … Continue reading Costa de la Luz. The Atlantic relaxation / odpoczynek nad Atlantykiem

Ronda. Z pamiętnika turysty / From a traveller’s diary

Ronda, fantastycznie położona po obu stronach wąwozu rzeki Guadalevín, jest żelazną pozycją na trasie każdej wycieczki po Andaluzji. Nie mogło jej zabraknąć na naszej, choć przeznaczyliśmy sobie na nią jedynie parę godzin. Aga, jeszcze przed wyjazdem, przedstawiła swoje oczekiwania co do naszych wakacji – “więcej odpoczynku, mniej chodzenia (i jeżdżenia)” oraz “mniej zabytków, więcej natury”. Wydaje mi się, że chciała nawiązać do naszej podróży “dookoła … Continue reading Ronda. Z pamiętnika turysty / From a traveller’s diary
