Seville Walking Guide

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.

Across the squre, 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.

Then, 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.

Right across, walk though Maria Luisa Park to go to  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, cross the bridge and found yourself at  Barrio de Triana . 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.
