Seville city of experiences
The capital of Seville has registered a full capacity in all hotel beds and tourist apartments.
This has led the artists to get to know the city first hand and to enjoy the monuments of Seville in their maximum splendour.
With all this we bring you the best reasons why to travel to Seville and meet her.
The Giralda and the Cathedral
Our first stop on the Seville city tour is the third largest and most important cathedral in the world.
The Cathedral of Seville impresses from any of its sides, with special charm in the facade that joins its bell tower: the Giralda.
Since 1401, its foundations have been built on top of the old Aljama mosque, whose minaret (the Giralda) and the Patio de los Naranjos (Orange Tree Courtyard) have been preserved.
The climb to the Giralda to contemplate the whole city is a must, as well as the tour of the roofs of the cathedral in which you will see its greatness in its maximum expression.
The Alcazar of Seville
The enclosure was the residence of the Catholic Monarchs and is a place of reception for heads of state who visit the city of Seville.
It’s the oldest active royal palace in Europe and in its construction can be found various styles from Islamic to Gothic.
In addition to their construction, the gardens will impact you for their attractiveness and beauty that has enamored those who know it.
By the way, if you are a fan of Game of Thrones, it has been the location for the shooting of the series that chose Seville to shoot part of its scenes.
The Plaza de España
Within the Maria Luisa Park, the green lung of the historic centre of the city and one of the most important in Spain, is the Plaza de España.
It is one of the most attractive and impressive places in the city. Built in 1929 for the Ibero-American Exhibition by the architect Aníbal González.
The towers that guard the square, 74 meters high, gives a greater architectural impact to the space.
It has been the setting for films such as Star Wars Episode II or Lawrence of Arabia.
Walk along the Guadalquivir River
From the Torre del Oro to the Puente de Triana, the bank of the Guadalquivir River bathes Seville and gives us an incredible postcard at sunset.
Enjoying the views around the Triana bridge or the strategic position of the Torre del Oro is one of the most beautiful walks.
You can also take boat trips to get to know the city of Seville from another perspective.
Las Setas de Sevilla and Torre Sevilla, the most modern concepts of the city
