The Andalucian capital and fourth largest city in Spain. It’s also the most populated town in the south of Spain. Also, one of the most visited towns by foreign holiday makers.

Seville has over 3,000 years of history and is literally a living museum. Visit Seville in the summer and the heat can be unendurable. It is thought to be one of the hottest places in Europe.

Springtime is nicer, which is when we visited Seville. However it is one of the most beautiful cities that we have visited in all of Spain. We were able to see the majority of it in 2 days.

The town was quite simple to navigate and driving around was unusually calm. The best place to base yourself is in the old quarter, close to the cathedral, as we did. From here you can walk to most sights. Here we have released just a few of them.

The most electrifying building in the city must be the most important gothic Cathedral in the world, building started in–01. In total the cathedral houses over 500 artistic endeavors, some of which are the most important in the world.

The tallest tower in Spain stands in Seville, attached to the cathedral, La Giralda (Moorish Tower ), 319 feet high, an expression of the city’s significance. The tower is a traditional minaret of the Islamic Mosque and was erected in 1184. Its foundations use stones from Roman monuments.

The Torre del Oro or Golden Tower was built between 1221 and 1222 and was one of the last contributions from the Almohade period in Seville. It formed part of the last wall of defence that ran from the Alcazar to the river. It is claimed that it gained its name from the sun’s reflection on its gold tiles that once covered the dome. Today it houses the Naval Museum and all the gold has sadly been thieved. Youcan find it alongside the river, close to the bullring.

The Alcazar is a collection of Moorish Palaces on which building commenced in 931. It has over the years been the residence of many monarch. The buildings and gardens are enclosed by walls and coated with orange trees. So make the maximum of the Andalusian capital and venture over there to experience everything it has got to offer.
