We definitely loved our visit to Seville. Even if it was so hot we needed a siesta from the heat every day! Public transit helped us to get around. We were happy we did a food tour that also got us a flamenco show. That way we didn’t have to worry about booking tickets in advance on a short stay. We saw most of the big tourist sites. But loved when we just wandered the streets of Seville. And stopped to find some yummy paella.
Such a gorgeous destination full of history and culture. No doubt that the Alcazar would be amazing but I am the most intrigued by Seville Cathedral . It looks so impressive. And yes, not missing the Flamenco dance for sure.
Yes Seville is wonderful cultural capital of Spain. You would love the traditions, culture and architecture here.
I am in complete love with Seville. The Alcazar is so pretty, I mean imagine those Game of Thrones’ sets in the Ambassador Hall. I can resonate with your feeling while you were there. It is one of the prettiest cities in Spain.
I agree, I loved the culture and artistic vibes of Seville and found it very interesting.
I´m portuguese and i dance flamenco for about 10 years. It´s a passion. This is one of the reasons that i really like Seville. I´ve been several times and i always want to return!
