Castañuelas Zadi, Seville

What to buy here: Hand-painted fans.

When the heat of midday gets to be unbearable, Sevillian women sport hand-painted fans. During Spain’s Golden Age, fans came to have a language of their own in courtship, but today you can find an abánico in nearly every size and color just to complement a look. Whether you’re a bride searching for a lace fan or you simply want something to remember your days in Seville by, fans make light and practical gifts, and seem almost personal due to the plethora of options in their color, style and cut. Most come with a matching case to keep it safe from wear and tear during the hot summer months.

Calle Sierpes, one of the major shopping thoroughfares of the old city, has world-class establishments with over a century of experience, and all fans are painted in-house. Additionally, many sell brooches and shawls that are handcrafted and almost disguise your touring gear! Price: 2,50€ - 5,000€
