El Bulli Hacienda Benazuza, Ferran Adria’s  centuries-old estate, just outside of Seville offers a 44-room hotel surrounded by gardens, Andalusian patios, babbling fountains, and olive groves.

The decor pays homage to Andalusia’s Muslim roots without sacrificing modern luxuries,  but it’s the food that counts.  The Michelin two-star La Alquería restaurant  by Ferran’s right-hand man, Rafa Morales serves  El Bulli’s greatest  edible works of art. 

 As Adria says  “Cuisine is not something to be had, but a state to be in.”
