Enjoy a guided adventure to...
The culturally rich and beautiful capital of Andalusia is one of Europe’s most charming and romantic cities. The old town of Seville is magical, with winding cobbled streets, Moorish architecture and many memorable attractions.
It has a stunning Gothic cathedral, the largest in Europe, founded on the site of a former mosque. Its bell tower, the Giralda, was the former minaret of the mosque and is an important example of the fusion of Islamic and Christian architecture in Andalusia. You can also visit the Alcázar, the magnificent Moorish palace in the centre of Seville. The beautiful manicured gardens of the Alcázar combine Arabic and Renaissance styles, with orange trees, palm trees, fountains and pavilions. Also don’t forget to visit the Plaza de la Encarnación to view the famous mushroom sculpture - which provides magnificent views of the city – and the Plaza de España situated next to the Maria Luisa gardens. An enjoyable way to see some of the old town and the Plaza de España is to take a horse and carriage ride through Seville. Seville’s history is woven into folklore, with Bizet’s Carmen capturing the image of a steaming, sultry city fuelled by colonial passions. Walk the streets of this beautiful city and along the way stop at one of the famous tapas bars for an authentic Sevillian lunch.
