SEVILLE

 
The Moorish City of Seville (Sevilla in spanish) is a fantastic introduction to Andalusia being it’s capital and largest city famous for its monuments,its happy people, oranges and the heat ! Head to the the east bank of the River Guadalquivir which runs through the heart of the city where you will find the Old City. There you will discover the majestic Giralda Tower, the Cathedral and the Alcázar Palace. To the east of them lies the charming and romantic, medieval jewish quarter of Santa Cruz with its whitewashed buildings and domestic patios like Casa de Pilatos. Across the river is the poorer neighbourhood of Triana famous for its flamenco dancing.

The Cathedral dates back to 1402 and is the largest Gothic Church in the world replacing most of the old mosque before it. However, the Giralda Tower and moorish entrance court, Patio de los Naranjos still stand. Inside the Cathedral is the tomb of Christopher Columbus. To the left of the Capilla Real is Sevilla’s most beautiful building, the Giralda. From its bell chamber you can enjoy the incredible views.  The Alcázar Palace is another world of ceramic tiled domed rooms and patios. Home to the great rulers of Andalusia both Moor and Christian. Its gardens help you to escape from it all!

Another must do is a stroll around Plaza de España and its park (María Luisa) arguably one of the most impressive public spaces in Spain. It’s after you pass the enormous, former Cigarette Factory. At the end of the Park the Archaeological and Arts Museums are worth visiting.

Then it’s worth going to the River Guadalquivir where you can have a nice stroll and see the twelve-sided Torre del Oro built in 1220 which dominates the river’s skyline. Other highlights include the Museo de Bellas Artes one of Spain’s best art galleries. Ask for the Street Market held each Thursday. For something different visit the Ceramic Centre in Triana or the 14th century Carthusian Monastery Santa Maria de las Cuevas. During La Liga football season you can watch either Sevilla or Real Betis who are arch rivals. And its easter processions and April week Fair are arguably the best Spain has to offer while bullfighting remains very important here too. 

On the gastronomy front Seville is the perfect city to go for a stroll and sit outside on a terrace watching the world going by. It really is packed with bars and restaurants where you can try delicious tapas like honey ribs,roast fish and meats, prawns, cured hams etc washed down with the local wines.
