Ferretería Puerta Carmona

1) Ferretería Puerta Carmona

What to buy here: Ironworks – The streets of Sevilla boast lovely ironworks in the form of lamps, railings and even manhole covers, and iron is to the city of Seville as neon is to Las Vegas. The ornate pieces in the form of hooks, drawer pulls, kings and even statuets make wonderful, lasting souvenirs. The Spaniards buy all of their hardware needs at stores called ferreterías, and the selection of Ferretería Puerta Carmona has a reputation for being the biggest and best. In the small,...   view more
Convento San Leandro

2) Convento San Leandro

What to buy here: Convent sweets.

The historic city center is dotted with convents where the nuns pass their time making sweets and peddling them out of turnstiles in the foyer. From honeys and jams to cookies, the nuns provided sevillanos with their sugar rush. Enter into any of the small doors next to the convent, and a cloistered nun – hidden from view – will ask your order. Tell them you’ve come without sin, and you’ll be awarded with something sinful – pestiños, yemas San...   view more
Asunción Pena

3) Asunción Pena

What to buy here: Flamenco dresses and accessories.

Colorful, polka-dotted and form-fitting, a traje de gitana, or flamenco dress, is one of the most authentic gift options in Seville. As the cradle of flamenco, the city plays host to some of the best flamenco fashion designers in Spain, like Vicky Martín Berrocal , Loli Vera and Luchi Cabrera, who draw their inspiration from the gypsies of centuries past and the cobblestone alleyways of the old city. Expect low necklines and plenty of...   view more
Antonio Garcia

4) Antonio Garcia

What to buy here: Sombreros Cordobeses.

Cordobese Style hats are fashionable during the springtime fairs around Southern Spain, and their wide brims keep the sun away from your face. There is none more famous than the one crafted by Antonio García, which has been the leading house of hats in Seville since 1847. Little has changed about the construction of these handmade hats in the last 150 years, and the variety can’t be beat by any other establishment. Taking into account size, purpose...   view more
Juncia y Romero

5) Juncia y Romero

What to buy here: Religious gifts.

Holy Week is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year in Spain, and Seville’s fame is well-deserved. The streets fill with incense, three-foot long candles and the more than thirty penitent brotherhoods who parade their lifelike floats though the city center. You can take home a token of the city’s most passionate week, ranging from small to large, simple to ornate. Common gifts include rosaries, incense, figurines and robes. Or, pick up a small...   view more
Castañuelas Zadi

6) Castañuelas Zadi

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...   view more
Confitería La Campana

7) Confitería La Campana

What to buy here: Tortas del Aceite.

A lunchbox staple and afternoon snack favorite, tortas del aceite are simple cakes made of flour, sugar and salt that are fried in olive oil. Dipped in coffee or hot chocolate, the small cakes are crunchy and light, so it’s a good treat to break up a shopping day. Located on the main shopping street, Calle Sierpes, you’ll find Confitería La Campana, one of Seville’s oldest and most respected pastry shops. The waiters, dressed in Old World uniforms,...   view more
Supermercados el Corte Inglés

8) Supermercados el Corte Inglés

What to buy here: Anisette.

The national drink of the Mediterranean could easily be anisette liquor, a clear drink consumed at nearly any time of day in Seville. Made through the process of distilling anise seeds, the taste is of licorice and there is no shortage of types – from aguardiente to Turkish raki. While most supermarkets will carry the famous brands, having an anise with your afternoon snack is the sevillano way. Nearly every bar in the city has a bottle stashed under the bar, and...   view more
