Traveler's Guide to Seville: Top 16 Local Products
Immortalized by Gioachino Rossini in his famous The Barber of Seville opera, the city of Seville is a major historic and cultural sight adorning the face of modern Spain. Much of the city's character is reflected in the locally-made products that can make for a great gift or trip memento reminding you of the days well spent in the hot land of Andalusia.

1. Cartuja Ceramics

Seville’s Cartuja Monastery, now a world-class modern art museum, still stands witness to the large kilns used to fire the hand-crafted ceramics that emblazons the city. You’d be hard-pressed to find a traditional eatery in the city that didn’t have the iconic celosía tiles lining the perimeter of the establishment, and most Spanish homes have ceramic pieces decorating balconies, walls or even bathrooms. Taking home handcrafted ceramic makes a delicate yet gorgeous gift, and its practicality is appreciated on both sides of the Atlantic. You can pick up anything, from a magnet to a set of bowls in blue, green, yellow and red hues, or even find a tile of the city’s patron saint, San Fernando.
While the Cartuja monastery gave the name to this time of handicraft, tile is no longer produced there. Instead, the small shops that cluster C/San Jorge and C/Antillano Campos produce, paint and fire their products in-house. Most shops offer the option of designing your own wares, but all will neatly pack up your purchase to ensure they don’t break on the trip back home.
