Travel to Seville for a panoramic drive through this amazing city. Watch for the stunning Plaza de España, which was the Spanish Pavilion during the 1929 World Expo. It reflects all provinces of Spain and is covered entirely in decorative ceramic tiles.

You will stop to visit the Las Dueñas Palace, only recently opened to the public and a magnificent addition to Seville's incredible architectural artistic heritage. This palace was the home of the Duchess of Alba until her death in 2014. The Duchess of Alba, Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, was a member of the upper nobility of Spain. In fact, she held more titles than Queen Elizabeth II of England. The palace is was built between the 15th and 16th century in Gothic Mudejar style. In the 20th century, it was used as a meeting place for members of European Royal Families and high society. Jackie Kennedy, Wallis Simpson, Grace Kelly and her husband Prince Rainier of Monaco all came here. Today it's your turn to enjoy the legacy that the Duchess of Alba left to the city of Seville.

Back in the very heart of the Old Town of Seville, enjoy a tapas lunch.

The modern and interactive Flamenco Dance Museum is located in a restored Seville house in the historical center. The Artistic Direction of the center has been undertaken by Cristina Hoyos herself. The Museum's content is a loving tribute to different aspects of the Flamenco dance, from dancing ateliers to temporary painting exhibitions, interactive lessons on Flamenco history, and a multi-media show. One of the rooms shows representative Flamenco 'tools' -- guitars, castanets and colorful Flamenco dresses.

In the lovely surroundings of the museum, you will have a special and exclusive Flamenco lesson. Your spirited and enthusiastic teacher will show you the intricate steps and flamboyant movements.

Notes:
