I made it pretty clear in the first sentence that it is impossible to give an objective opinion. But still glad you were not disappointed by Barcelona.

boo-hoo.  
 
 i concur with the segovia statements.  as for barcelona, admittedly i was there just before the olympics which probably explains itself, i did not care for it at all.  there really wasn't anything memorable, to me, in barcelona.  i will instantly remember the flat plains of castille, and the alcazar in segovia, the alhambra in granada and even wandering around sevilla at 3 in the morning trying to find a cab.  i would rather spend time in madrid, sevilla and granada (gypsy kicking included).  again, i was in barcelona just before the olympics, so the city was probably not at its best.

I'll still take Barcelona, if I were going there to live. It's not like you're going to be hanging out at the AlHambra or alcazar on a daily basis.

Why would you need to take a cab in such a small walkable city as Seville?

The basque country is also great.
couldn't agree more - spent some time in Bilbao, San Seb and Elizondo (just outside Pamplona) last year and loved every minute of it
