Colors of Seville

Seville is one of the most beautiful cities of South of Spain. The colorful city is full of history.

< Day 1>

Start your day in the heart of old town Seville. Visit the Cathedral of Seville with its Giralda Tower. After visitant the Dark yet majestic interior of the Cathedral go towards La Giralda, an old Minaret, right next to the Cathedral. Take the step challenge and you will be rewarded with a breathtaking 360 view of Seville.

No too far from there, you can visit Alcazar, the oldest European royal residence still in use (the king and queen stay here when they’re in Seville). The different palacios are beautiful as well as the gardens. Just wander around and admire the artisan work.

At night, grab dinner at one of the many restaurants in old town. The setting is just beautiful. Later on, make sure to catch a Flamenco Show, many places in town offer one.

<Day2>

On day 2, head to Plaza de España, about 15 min walk from old town. It is a crescent-shaped Renaissance-style Plaza designed and supervised by Architect Aníbal González. Get close to the murals; it’s all about the details. You can rent rowboats for excursions on the canal, be ready for some arm workout.

From there, walk though Maria Luisa Park to go towards Torre del Oro and Plaza de toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla. It is worth taking a tour of the magnificent Bullring with its impressive Baroque façade and the main entrance Puerta del Príncipe with beautiful 16th-century iron gates. Unfortunately it is not possible to step into the ring.

In the late afternoon, you can head to Barrio de Triana , across the river. It is the working class neighborhood, where you can do some not touristy shopping. This is the best area to head for early evening tapas.
