WHY HERE: A little bar with a big story, everything about Seville’s El Rinconcillo—from the intricate, colorful tilework to the soaring, ornate shelves filled with ancient, slightly dusty bottles—is dripping with a history. This spot lays claim to the title of oldest bar in the city (it was founded in 1670), but don’t expect fussiness from the wait staff, just some of the most delicious sherry and tapas you’ve ever tasted. WHY NOW: The bar isn’t much of a secret anymore, but that doesn’t make it any less important for drinkers who are passionate about Spanish tradition and, in particular, fortified wine. Try to visit during a shoulder season or off-peak hours to sluff off the crowds.
