One of the most beautiful Spanish cities, Seville is full of history everywhere. Its most iconic buildings are the cathedral with the famous Giralda tower
… and the Alcazar, the oldest European royal palace still in use, a wonderful example of Mudejar architecture.
Other notable buildings are Plaza de España, built for the 1929 Exposición Ibero-Americana
… and Torre del Oro, built in the 13th century to control access to the city via the Guadalquivir River.
The Maestranza bullring, one of the most famous in the world, is worth a visit (at least to wonder around it)
What makes Seville truly special is its old quarter, full of narrow streets like the old Jewish quarter
… and the surrounding areas full of lively bars, restaurants and shops
Religion plays a big part in the city’s life. Seville has many wonderful churches, and many walls are adorned with all sort of Christs and Virgins
Semana Santa (Easter’s Holy Week) is a special event in Seville. Thousands of visitors go to the city to witness the numerous processions that take place all around the city.
