Visit to an art restoration studio
If you are an art lover there isn’t a better way to experience it on first hand than visiting an art restoration studio. In Seville, you can have the chance of visiting the studio of two renowned art restorers. They will show you around the studio where artistic treasures are being restored. Depending on the day, you will find them working on some Golden Age paintings, rococo mirrors, ivory crucifixes or Roman pottery over 2000 years old. You will see what are the techniques they use to save such valuable pieces and bring them back to life. If you have a passion for art this is a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
From the St James Way to the Castilian castles in Carameltral we recommend a unique way of discovering the history of Spain right down to the core by lodging in restored monasteries or castles. With Paradores a total immersion in history and culture is possible.
