"Are you mad going to Spain in July and August?" I hear you cry. "Madder than you think", I reply. I've been in the inferno that is Madrid in high summer, but this year I'm pushing my luck a bit — I'm going to Andalucía!

Just off O'Donnell Street
Believe it or not, that's where my Seville hotel was situated. Calle O'Donnell is named after Don Leopoldo O'Donnell y Jorris, who was prime minister of Spain on several occasions between 1856 and 1863. He was a descendant of the O'Donnell clan of Tyrconnel.
