Madrid or Seville/Andalusia

My husband and I have 7 days to spend in Spain in July. We know we want to spend 4 days in Barcelona, but are having trouble deciding between Seville or Madrid.
Suggestions are welcome.
We enjoy eating and wine and cultural treks, if that helps at all.

Also, the travel websites I have read say that July is unbearable heat. Is it really *that* bad? We are from Texas, so we are quite used to the heat, but definitely not used to no A.C. !

I was in Madrid a few years ago and did not go to Seville - I greatly regret that. Everyone speaks highly of Seville and Madrid was nice, but we had seen it all in a day or two. I would choose Seville.

I've been to both and agree with the above--Seville in a heartbeat. Just check out the hotel to make sure it has AC. It will be hot as heaven! (LOL)

I have been to both Madrid and Seville. I liked Madrid, but loved Seville and wish I had planned more time there.

Seville is lovely but it has the feel of a provincial city whereas Madrid is much larger and busier. Out of the two for a first timer, well, Seville is probably more charming. I love Madrid but many people avoid it.
