3. Churros anyone?

The foodie fun wouldn’t be complete without a few sweet bites. Kids (and adults!) love the freshly fried churros dipped in a cup of hot chocolate from the bar that’s been perfecting the recipe for over 100 years. With so many delicious bakeries and amazing ice cream shops in Seville, kids will have two more chances to try local specialties, meaning that something dulce is never too far away!

4. Buy sweet treats with a secret password

Did you know that throughout Spain, cloistered nuns sell baked goods to the public? We’ll visit one of the few convents remaining in Seville that still sells delicious treats. Our guide will help kids participate in a local tradition involving a “secret password” to get a box of Spanish cookies for the whole group to enjoy.
