Speaking of maps, I just returned from my monthly run to my favorite map store to get the new Michelin Regional 576 for Extremadura, which now completes my set of these new orange guides.
We don't usually carry our Campsa with us either, because it's so darn heavy.

In Seville because our hotel, the Casa del Maestro, was tucked away in a neighborhood we didn't know well, we bought the RACC plastic Sevilla Walk/Map at Casa del Libro on Calle Tetuán to be able to wander around better since I had inadvertently left my Knopf Seville city map at home. The Knopf is the most detailed of maze-like Seville I've ever found.

Another little foodie guide you might want to persuse in the Casa del Libro is the "De tapa en tapa por Sevilla". We bought it so that we could broaden our repertoire. It's arranged by neighborhood, with little maps, and bars are classified by olives, from 1-3!. Your favorite (and ours), El Rinconcillo, is featured, of course, as well as some new ones we enjoyed, like Bar Estrella on Estrella 3 very near the cathedral, Bodeguita A. Romero on Gamazos 16 near the Maestranza and the Taberna Coloniales up on Plaza Cristo de Burgos, not far from the Casa de Pilatos.

Now, I'm finished! Time to pass it on to Olga and the rest of the Spain gang to give you their favorite haunts.

!Que lo pases muy bien!

I am topping this wonderful thread for anyone planning a trip to these areas who may have missed it. I would like to know if anyone has tips on tracking down the Guia Campsa guide here in the US. The thread also mentions the web site for Gourmet Tour which is a fabulous restaurant resource; I am having some trouble finding it and wonder if anyone has the link. Any other ideas for restaurant guides to Spain would be a great help. Can be either in English or Spanish. I already have the Penelope Casas book; it is my main planning guide for Spain.
