Unplanned day trip to Seville tomorrow--help, please!

My husband, our five-year-old, and I are vacationing in the Algarve, and we suddenly have a free day tomorrow to do whatever we'd like. We want to use the day to see Seville. However, we haven't had time to plan. What do we need to see? What do we need to avoid? What do we need to know about that I'm too tired to think to ask you about?

How to get the most out of San Sebastian over a rainy weekend

After years of raving about San Sebastian to my husband, we're finally going together for a 4 day weekend! I just checked the weather and it's going to be raining buckets. I was hoping for a lot of nice walks and hanging out in parks to work off the wine and pintxos but now that seems kind of unlikely. The aquarium seems like an option, but what else could we do? (Of course if you have recommendations on where to go for more wine and pintxos, do share!)

Best way to carry money in Europe

I will be travelling to France, Italy, and Spain in a few weeks, and I'm trying to decide the best way to carry money with me. Many sites have recommended money belts, but this seems weird and awkward for actually paying for things! I would feel weird untucking my shirt and reaching into my pants in a fancy restaurant, for example. [more inside]

Two Guys In Madrid For Two Weeks In Jan

That's to you guys we're going to Madrid for two weeks in mid Janurary. Since it's our first time we plan on doing on the standard touristy things, but what are some things we might miss out on otherwise? We enjoy fine dining, touring impressive feats of engineering, unusual or highly specific museums, the gothic or macabre, antiques, high end second hand mensware shops, and all types of ruins. Day trip advice very welcome.

Two Weeks in Spain, how to divide up the time between cities?

We're going to Spain for two weeks in January. I've been told Barcelona is very fun and Madrid is dull but has great museums. How many days should we devote to each city? We like fine food, queer events, second hand clothes shopping, fancy bars, historical sites, and things you don't need a car to see. Would love to go out into the countryside if we can on public transportation. Is there a great reason to stay in Bracelona and just day trip to Madrid? Or vice versa? [more inside]

Looking for tips for upcoming trip to Barcelona in last two weeks of September. We've read some travel guides but wondering for first-hand advice on what to expect for weather, how much tourist Catalan to cram, must-sees, must-avoids, advice on how to best experience the Mercè festival which takes place while we are there, any great recommended day trips, how to most cost-effectively navigate the city via metro or tram, etc. Thanks in advance.

Is anyone familiar with Camallera, Spain?

I'm about to travel to Camallera to stay there for a month, and I was wondering if anyone has any advice about the town, things in the region to visit (super interested in flora/fauna exposure), and how to get from the train station to my lodgings (a number for a reliable, currently operating taxi service would be awesome).

What was the amazing sculpture I remember from 22 years ago in Sevilla?

In 1993 I traveled around Spain as a student, and am kicking myself for not taking a picture of an amazing statue I saw two or three times fleetingly from the tour bus in Sevilla. Feels like a long shot, because I've searched for images of it online many times and keep coming up empty. Can you help me identify and locate it? [more inside]
