Bar La Goleta

1) Bar La Goleta

What to buy here: Orange wine

Seville’s orange trees provide jam to England, and a bittersweet vino de naranja for the rest of us. Though many tourist shops sell a similar product, Bar La Goleta, one of the city’s most famous, is owned by the son of flamenco singer Pepe Perejil and boasts the sweetest juice. Since he owns the exclusive rights to market and distribute the wine, he has made it popular with both the native and tourist crowds. Just steps from the Giralda tower, this cozy bar serves up typical tapas to compliment the wine, served in teeny glasses, and the bartenders are always up for a conversation.

Price: ¾ L bottle – 7€, 2L garafa – 12€.

Operation hours: Monday-Sunday: 12:00-last customer.

Felix Cartelería

2) Felix Cartelería

What to buy here: Old-World bullfighting posters.

Seville is home to the beautiful Maestranza bullring, one of the oldest and most respected in Spain. Those who love Hemmingway or the art of the capea can’t leave Seville without picking up one of the posters, called carteles, which announce the summer line-up of bullfighters. Some retain creases from being folded or even dirt or a tear, making their authenticity as unquestionable as the fear a charging bull strikes in the heart of a matador. While the bullring sells reproductions, prices for posters are generally based on the age (the older, the most costly), and any famous torero that appears. Casa Felix, an age-old poster shop that sits in front of the sprawling cathedral, is a small shop that pays homage to the arts of bullfighting and flamenco. Here, you’ll find more than posters – pins, old tin advertisements and books are on sale, too. Price: 5€ - 100€.

Operation hours: Monday–Friday: 10:00–15:00 and 17:00–20:30; Saturday and Sunday: 10:30–14:00.

Artesanía Textil on Vinuesa

3) Artesanía Textil on Vinuesa

What to buy here: Mantillas and mantones de encaje – Gorgeous, black, hand-embroidered shawls are a staple of Holy Week fashion and April fair fashion. Seemingly out of the last century, both can be made of either silk or rayon, handmade or by machine. Regardless, both add a touch of elegance to any outfit – just ask any Sevillian woman who wears one to a bullfight or wedding, or even with her flamenco dress! The size and color options are seemingly endless, and paired with a plastic or tortoise shell comb, are a beautiful gift option for anyone on your list.

Price: Mantones: 26€ - 1000€, Mantillas: 44€ - 1000€.

Droguería del Arenal

4) Droguería del Arenal

What to buy here: Orange blossom perfume.

When the bitter Seville oranges are plucked from the thousands of trees around the city, the orange blossoms spread their intoxicating scent over the city. You can have it bottled up and take home the fragrance by purchasing orange blossom perfume, called agua de azahar. While this product is often used in baking and even, the small white flower is pressed and mixed with alcohol to leave a smell that can be likened to fresh laundry with a sprig of citrus, or just an afternoon roaming the streets of Seville during the springtime. Price: 14€ a bottle.

Operation hours: Monday–Friday: 10:00–13:30 and 17:00–20:30

Ceramicá Santa Ana

5) Ceramicá Santa Ana

What to buy here: 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. Price: 3€ - 100€ or more.

Operation hours: Monday–Friday: 9:30–13:30 and 17:00–20:30; Saturday: 10:00–14:00.
