Heladeria La Fiorentina – Late afternoon retreat

This highly regarded Ice Creamería has been described as the best in town, and provides the perfect setting to forget about the chaos of the tourist trails. Spear-headed by ice-cream maestro Joaquín Liria, the diversity of the flavours, and quality of the product, mean that this parlour stands apart from the rest in terms of both experience and enjoyment.

The huge array of sabores includes the classics as well as several distinctly Sevillian flavours. The Dulce de Torrijas is a pastel traditionally eaten around Semana Santa, and consists of eggy bread soaked in a concoction of wine, cinnamon, lemon and orange, before being fried and dipped in honey. Another typically Sevillian taste is the Flor de Azahar, which captures the unique smell of Seville in springtime, as the orange flower blossoms. As the delightful Veronica explained, a philosophy of the heladeria is capturing flavours from Andalucían cakes usually only available at certain times of the year, and making these delicacies available at any time. If looking for something more refreshing, the lemon with hierbabuena encases the flora of a classic Sevillian patio space. Above all, make sure you ask to try a few flavours before cementing your choice.

Without delving too deeply into the aspects of taste, this traditional heladeria offers the perfect complement to a day around town. A traditional place to unwind for a moment during the siesta period, and not only is very reasonably priced, but also a friendly place to watch the bustle of the city pass you by.
